Broccoli frittata

It’s been a while since I posted any recipes. I thought I’d come back with a recipe I recently tried and totally loved!

This is a recipe for a baked broccoli frittata. Works as a great brunch/brunch dish; its healthy, very filling and great to share with friends/family.

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup of chopped broccoli florets
  • 1 garlic clove (sliced)
  • 1 medium onion (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan 
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup milk (any kind)
  • Salt & pepper (for seasoning)


Method:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 °C (350° F)
  2. Beat eggs in a bowl, mixing in the milk and a pinch of salt & pepper
  3. Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a non-stick ovenproof saucepan on medium-high heat for 30 seconds
  4. Cook the onions & broccoli for 2-3 minutes (adding a tbsp of water halfway through and cover)
  5. Add the other tbsp of olive oil & pour  in the egg mixture, making sure the eggs evenly cover the entire surface
  6. Keep it on the stove till the edges start to cook
  7. Evenly add the cheese and put the pan in the oven, and let it bake for 12-15 minutes (till the eggs are cooked and set in the center)
  8. Take the pan out of the oven, flip it on a plate and SERVE HOT!

You can season it (optional) with more salt & pepper, or your choice of spices (dry thyme works too). You could also add bellpeppers or mushrooms for extra taste & color 😉
