Wash the zucchini and cut it into small cubes. Heat a skillet over medium heat and add olive oil.
Cook the zucchini and red pepper until they soften a little. Add the washed spinach leaves and saute for one minute.
Beat the eggs in a bowl and add salt and pepper. Add mixture to the pan on top of the vegetables. Reduce heat to low and let stand for a minute.
Add cheese and fold in half. Cook for half a minute more, then remove from heat and serve.
Cooking tips: When beating the eggs, it only needs to be enough to mix the whites and the yolks; they don’t need to be completely combined. Varieties:
- Replace the zucchini and spinach with sautéd mushrooms cut into slices or diced. Add oregano, olive oil, and salt to the beaten eggs before adding to the mushrooms.
- You can skip the veggies and go straight to the eggs while adding some diced ham or bacon.
- For a different presentation or a creamier consistency, just add the beaten eggs, salt, and pepper and to the pan, let it cook for a bit, and then roll it up.
