From the kitchen of The South Beach Diet Cookbook (orange)

Yummy frittata with lots of veggies. I usually use about twice the amount of peppers and mushrooms as called for in the recipe and sometimes an extra zucchini, too. One of the ingredients in the recipe is liquid egg substitute. I never have this on hand and have a hard time finding it, so I just throw in a couple of extra eggs depending on how many vegetables I’ve used.
