I Dream of Spring: Crazy Feta, Asparagus & Pea Frittata Meatless Monday Recipe


Because I grew up in Russia, some of my basic believes are slightly different than yours. For example, first day of Spring is March 1st, not 20th like it is in the US. Regardless of when you think Spring starts, I'm sure just like me you are dreaming about it. Summer, no thank you, but Spring, BRING IT!

When I think of Spring, I think flowers, lighter food, and the color green. That's why I created a I Dream of Spring Crazy Feta, Asparagus & Pea Frittata.

Last week I shared with you a recipe for  Chickpea, Artichoke Hearts & Harissa Healthy Vegan Dip I created with a container of Cava Mezze's Harissa. Well, the frittata recipe I'm sharing with you today uses another popular product from Cava Mezze: crazy feta!

"This jalapeño-infused feta mousse is our modern American twist on a classic Greek mezze. It includes the finest imported Greek feta cheese and extra-virgin olive oil whipped with jalapeño peppers for a marvelous blend of flavors. Crazy Feta™ is crazy good."



I Dream of Spring: Crazy Feta, Asparagus & Pea Frittata Meatless Monday Recipe
Ingredients
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup chopped asparagus
1/2 cup defrosted peas
1 handful spinach
3 eggs, whisked with a few drops of water and seasoned with salt
1/2 cup crazy feta

Directions
1. Heat an oven safe skillet on medium high. Add the oil and allow it to heat. Saute the asparagus until it has softened.
2. Add peas and spinach and sauté until the spinach has wilted.
3. Pour in the egg mixture and allow it to set.
4. Top the frittata with the crazy feta and put under the broiler for about 5 minutes until the feta has slightly browned.




This makes for a great brunch dish and is even good at room temperature. You don't need to add any spices because the crazy feta has plenty of flavor.

You can find Cava crazy feta at these locations or try it at one of the Cava restaurants.
What SPRING things are you dreaming about?

Disclosure: I was provided with one container of Cava harissa and crazy feta (recipe coming next week) free of charge but was not paid for this post. All opinions are my own.

O over here spring starts on March 21st... Lol... Guess we all have our own dates but in the end it's nature that decides anyway right.... Spring has begun here in full force and I'm just hoping it stays that way!
