Squash flowers lend a subtle hint of the gourd's flavor and a splash of color to this simple frittata.


  • 1 sliced onion

  • Olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro

  • 6 squash blossoms

  • 10 lightly beaten large eggs

  • Salt and pepper

  • 4 ounces sliced mozzarella


  1. Saute onion in olive oil in a nonstick ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add cilantro and 3 sliced squash blossoms. Cook for 1 minute. Add eggs. Season with salt and pepper. Bake at 375 degrees until just set, about 10 minutes. Top with mozzarella and 3 squash blossoms. Return to oven until cheese melts and frittata is set, about 5 minutes more.
