Mini Frittata With Shiitake Mushrooms


I’ve always wanted to make frittata – a savoury Italian dish perfect for breakfast or lunch. They are easy and simple to make and while being low(er) on calories, they’re full of proteins and vitamins. I decided that the base for my frittata should be mushrooms and I chose Shiitake. Shiitake mushrooms are one of the most delicious of its kind. Solid in texture and full of delicate taste they are known for their health benefits, becoming a symbol of longevity in Asia. What’s not to like about that?

    We both have added Shiitake to an Italian recipe :) You’re so right about frittata, not too heavy and yet nutritious. Little frittata in Italian would sound like “frittatina”. Love your frittatina! :)
