Green Vegetable Frittata

Frittatas are a good way to get more vegetables into your diet. I made this one with green vegetables because there happened to be a lot of green vegetables in my fridge.

My photo of ingredients got messed up, so I’m skipping straight to the ingredients list.

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
  • 1 medium head broccoli, cut into small florets (about 1 3/4 cups)
  • 1 cup green beans, trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 6 eggs
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • dash pepper
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning

Preheat the oven to broil. Heat oil over medium heat in an oven-safe cast iron skillet. Add onion, bell pepper, broccoli and green beans. Sauté for 5 minutes. Add water and cover skillet with a lid to trap the steam. Reduce heat to low and cook for 5 minutes.


Beat eggs with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Remove the lid and add the eggs to the skillet and cook for 4 minutes.


Move the skillet to the preheated oven and cook for 4 more minutes. When the frittata is done the eggs should be set but not brown.

  • Eggs – I buy eggs in paper cartons. in Guelph the farmers’ market takes back egg cartons for reuse, but in California this is illegal to do. So I recycle egg cartons.

  1. Another yummy recipe – thanks!
    I have a friend with ducks and geese who is happy to have used egg cartons. And another friend who collects them for an art teacher to use for student projects.
