Broccoli Frittata (Recipe)


✅ 4 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped

✅ 12 large organic eggs

✅ ⅓ cup whole milk or water

✅ ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

✅ 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (I use Kasandrinos)

✅ 1 tablespoon minced fresh tarragon
✅ Salt and pepper

✅ 12 ounces broccoli florets, cut into ½-inch pieces (4 cups)

✅ 1 shallot, minced

✅ 1 teaspoon ground turmeric

✅ 3 tablespoons water

✅ ½ teaspoon grated lemon zest plus ½ teaspoon juice


1️⃣ Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk eggs, milk, Parmesan, 1 tablespoon oil, tarragon, and ¼ teaspoon salt in bowl until well combined.

2️⃣ Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in 12-inch oven-safe nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add broccoli, shallot, turmeric, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring frequently, until broccoli is crisp-tender and spotty brown, 7 to 9 minutes. Stir in water and lemon zest and juice and continue to cook, stirring constantly, until broccoli is just tender and no water remains in skillet, about 1 minute longer.

3️⃣ Add egg mixture and cook, using rubber spatula to stir and scrape bottom of skillet until large curds form and spatula leaves trail through eggs but eggs are still very wet, about 30 seconds. Smooth curds into even layer and cook, without stirring, for 30 seconds. Transfer skillet to oven and bake until frittata is slightly puffy and surface bounces back when lightly pressed, 5 to 8 minutes. Using rubber spatula, loosen frittata from skillet and transfer to cutting board. Let sit for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
