Broccoli Frittata

Made with egg whites, this protein-packed variation on quiche will have everyone in your family looking forward to their next serving of broccoli. If you don’t have tarragon on hand, your favorite herb will do. Use cilantro for a more southwestern flair or herbs de provence for a French twist.

  • ½ cup chicken, cooked and chopped
  • ½ cup tomatoes, chopped
  • ¼ cup onions, chopped
  • ⅛ tsp. tarragon

  2. Sauté broccoli, chicken, tomato, onion, and tarragon in an oven-proof skillet over medium heat until broccoli is just tender (5-6 minutes).
  3. Pour lightly beaten egg whites evenly over all ingredients in the saucepan.
  4. Cover and bake until firm on bottom and almost set on top (6-8 minutes). Cut into wedges to serve.
