Broccoli Feta Frittata – Weblog

This meal is one among my go-to’s when eggs are on my dietary radar. In case you observe me on Instagram, you would possibly discover I share a great deal of meals which are wealthy in recent greens, entire grains and beans and the occasional addition of dairy merchandise. I don’t eat eggs typically, as I discover my physique not often craves them. I have a tendency to not eat issues I don’t wish to eat, and so I generally go months with out consuming eggs in any respect, till I get a craving that wants a scrumptious reply. This recipe by no means disappoints and is (like most of my recipes) fairly adaptable.

Be happy so as to add in further greens like a handful of kale or add in extras from a fridge clean-out; frittatas are a bit like soup in that they’re very helpful for utilizing up fine details from the fridge – a half onion right here, a number of inexperienced onions there, any further small items of onerous cheeses that simply want a house. Use butter, ghee or oil to cook dinner the onions and experiment when you do this primary methodology! I like including slices of tomato and onion slices to the highest.

1-2 tbsp oil or ghee
1 giant pink or white onion, or 2 medium pink or white onions
2 broccoli crowns (about 4 cups, considerably finely chopped)
8 eggs
1.5-2 cups crumbled feta
1 cup milk
1/2 cup grated onerous cheese of selection for the highest (non-obligatory)
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes for the highest
Purple onion slices for the highest
Parsley or cilantro leaves for the garnish

Warmth the oven to 375 levels. Warmth a big sauté pan or braiser pan (I actually like my Lodge Solid Iron frying pan to make frittatas, you need a range high pan that may additionally go immediately into the oven after cooking on the range). Add the oil and warmth on medium. Add the chopped onion and salt and cook dinner, stirring, for 5-6 minutes till simply aromatic and beginning to soften. Add the chopped broccoli and cook dinner for 4-5 minutes till vivid inexperienced.

Whereas the broccoli is cooking, crack the eggs into a big bowl and whisk till the yolks are all cracked and well-blended. Add the milk and whisk briefly till mixed. Crumble the feta and add to the bowl.

As soon as the broccoli is prepared, hold the warmth on medium-high and add the egg combination to the pan, stirring simply earlier than to re-incorporate the combination. Working shortly, distribute the cheese and broccoli amongst the egg combination and attempt to make it even within the pan. The edges of the egg combination across the edges of the pan will begin to agency up, which is nice. After re-distributing for a number of seconds, add the pink onion rings, tomatoes, and non-obligatory further cheese to the highest of the combination. Flip the warmth to medium and cook dinner the frittata uncovered on the range high for 8-10 minutes, till the combination begins to agency up into the center. Depart it utterly uninterrupted whereas it cooks.

Add the partially cooked frittata to the oven and cook dinner an additional 35-45 minutes, or till the sides are browning. Take away from the oven and permit to chill for 10-Quarter-hour earlier than devouring. Sprinkle with recent herbs simply earlier than serving.

Take pleasure in for dinner, lunch or brunch with a aspect salad, or as a simple to pack and eat lunch on the go. I typically make this and luxuriate in it by means of the week for lunch. It’s filling and eats very well chilly! I counsel pairing this recipe with a yummy sauce too in order for you a meal that’s a bit ‘further’, I’d do this scrumptious Cashew Chipotle Sauce, or perhaps a little Kale Pesto.
