When I was a little girl, my parents would load us up in the van to take mini-vacations frequently. The drive I remember best was from our hometown of Batesville, Arkansas to Branson, Missouri. You heard me right, home to multiple outlet malls and a large majority of retired Vegas performers. Branson was a four hour drive, just long enough for my three siblings and I to resist going Hunger Games on each other. On the drive through the picturesque countryside (at least in my memory), we would play car games and look for broccoli. As a child I loved to eat little trees, especially when my mom melted cheese on top. With the trees seeming so green in the distance my sister and I thought they were big broccoli… As the leaves turned yellow they looked like broccoli with cheese.. Now as a grown up, who never lost her love for a plate full of little trees, my husband and I have these wonderful veggies growing in our backyard. My love for the veggies and my New Years health kick have inspired me to create a new broccoli recipe. This dish is perfect for anytime of the day and ridiculously heathy!
Broccoli and Cauliflower Frittata
1/2 pound of Cauliflower
1/2 pound of Broccoli
6 large eggs
2 Tbsps olive oil
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1 cup grated Swiss cheese
Directions: Chop the Cauliflower and broccoli, saving the heads.
Then sauté these pieces in a oven proof skillet (8-10 inch) with olive oil.
While waiting on the broccoli/cauliflower to finish, whisk the rest of the ingredients together in a bowl. Once the veggies are tender (5-7 minutes depending on the size of pieces), pour the mixture over top.
Preheat your boiler (this is optional but preferred). Cook these over medium low heat until the eggs begin to set on the bottom (about 5 minutes), then cover and cook until the eggs set on top (about 7 minutes). I then put my frittata under the broiler for just a minute to brown the top a bit. Now your ready to serve!
This pairs perfectly with potatoes, salad, or a simple fruit salad (pineapple, blueberries, and mint) as I served it with one morning for breakfast.
Enjoy this one guilt free! From our home to yours, happy eats!
