  • 2 medium zucchinis, grated
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 250g halloumi cheese, diced
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh herbs (such as parsley or chives), chopped for garnish


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Squeeze the excess moisture out of the grated zucchinis using a clean kitchen towel or cheesecloth.
  3. In a large oven-proof skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Sauté the onion until it’s soft and translucent, about 3-5 minutes.
  4. Add the grated zucchini to the skillet and cook for another 5 minutes, or until the zucchini is tender. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Scatter the diced halloumi evenly over the zucchini mixture.
  6. In a bowl, beat the eggs with the milk, and season with a little more salt and pepper.
  7. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet, ensuring it evenly covers the zucchini and halloumi.
  8. Cook on the stovetop for about 5 minutes, or until the edges start to set.
  9. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the frittata is set and golden on top.
  10. Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes.
  11. Garnish with fresh herbs, slice, and serve the Halloumi and Zucchini Frittata.
