1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. butter
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1/4 cups fresh parsley, chopped
2 cups frozen broccoli, thawned
1/2 tbsp. herbs de Provence
1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 tbsp. salt
1/8 tbsp. black pepper
egg whites
 cooking spray


  1. Heat oil and butter in a wide non-stick frying pan over medium heat; add onion and cook, stirring often, until onion begins to soften, about 3 minutes.
  2. Stir in garlic, parsley, broccoli and basil.. If using frozen vegetables, thaw first in microwave. If fresh, continue cooking, stirring often until broccoli is bright green. Remove from heat and stir in the cheese, salt and pepper.
  3. In a large bowl, beat eggs and egg whites until well blended. Stir in broccoli mixture.
  4. Spray a shallow 2 qt. baking dish with cooking spray. Use something that has a wide base -- I use a large frying pan with high sides and an oven-proof handle for this.
  5. Pour in broccoli mixture. Bake uncovered in 350 °F (165 °C) oven until frittata is firm in center when touched. Cut in pieces and serve warm.
