Broccoli Frittata

Broccoli Frittata

Frittata is my new obsession. I think because it’s a perfect fit with my low carb diet and there’s just something so right about eggs & cheese together. I can’t get enough! I found this recipe in an issue of Canadian Living Fresh & Healthy and it sounded so yummy and easy to make.  It was delicious! Even my 8 year old daughter gobbled it up.

Adapted from Canadian Living Fresh & Healthy

  • 3 cups chopped broccoli florets
  • 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. hot pepper flakes
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1. In a 10-inch skillet, bring broccoli and 1/2 cup water to a boil. Cover and cook over medium heat until tender-crisp, about 2 to 3 minutes. Uncover and cook over medium-high heat until no water remains, about 4 minutes.

2. Add 1 tbsp of oil, hot pepper flakes, garlic and green onions to pan; cook until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes.

3. In a large bowl, beat eggs and cheese. Stir in broccoli mixture.

4. Wipe out the skillet; heat remaining oil over medium heat. Pour in egg mixture, spreading evenly. Cook over medium-low heat for about 5 to 6 minutes.

5. Place skillet in 400°F oven; bake for 10 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes. Cut into wedges & serve.
