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.
Green Vegetable Frittata
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.

Ingredients that had packaging
- 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.
