Light Broccoli Frittata

Chef.Foodie's picture
Ingredients
  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Chopped onions 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Chopped broccoli 2 Cup (32 tbs) (Fresh / Frozen, 1/2 Inch Pieces)
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), minced / pressed
  Chopped fresh basil/1 teaspoon dried basil 2 Teaspoon
  Ground black pepper 1 Dash
  Salt 1 Dash
  Egg whites 6
  Grated sharp cheddar cheese/Pecorino / ricotta salata cheese 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
Directions

Preheat the broiler.
Heat the oil in a large flameproof skillet and saute the onions for about 5 minutes, until softened.
Add the broccoli, garlic, and basil to the onions and continue to saute for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the broccoli is bright green and crisp-tender.
Add the salt and pepper to the egg whites and beat with a fork until frothy.
Pour the beaten egg whites over the broccoli, tilting the skillet so that the eggs will flow evenly throughout the broccoli.
Cook on low heat for 3 to 4 minutes, until the egg whites are opaque and almost firm.
Sprinkle grated cheese on top, if you like, and place the skillet under the broiler for 2 to 3 minutes, until the cheese melts and begins to brown.
Cut the frittata in half and serve.
