Eat– for Good Health

A light and high-protein vegetarian egg dish, easy and fast, which can be enjoyed hot or cold with a green salad for lunch or some whole grain bread for breakfast. I love to eat this after a hard workout or bike ride. Serves 2 but easily scalable. Cut in half and serve with toast, a small salad, or some fresh fruit.

Here’s a list of ingredients:

1 tablespoon olive oil, 2/3 cup 1-inch pieces broccoli florets, 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped, 1/2 sweet onion, chopped, 6 marinated olives, chopped, 2 Large Egg Whites, 2 tablespoons whole milk, pinch of salt and pepper, ¼ cup feta cheese.

  1. Heat olive oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir broccoli, bell pepper, and sweet onion in hot oil until hot, about 3 minutes. Place a cover on the skillet and continue cooking until the vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes more. Stir olives into the vegetable mixture.
  2. Beat eggs, egg whites, milk, salt, and pepper together with a whisk in a small bowl; pour over the vegetable mixture in the skillet. Sprinkle feta cheese over the egg mixture.
  3. Replace cover on the skillet, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until the egg is lightly browned on the bottom, 3 to 5 minutes. Carefully flip the frittata and cook until the bottom is again lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes more.

    Ha! You could, Dash, but Kathleen won’t be home. I’m going along with her to a quilting bee. Doesn’t that sound old fashioned! New fashioned people are making quilts for foster kids.
