7-8 large eggs
¼ cup almond milk
1 teaspoon basil
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
3 pre-boiled potatoes, boiled and cut
1 garlic clove, minced
2 cups broccoli florets (no stems)
2 cups zucchini
½ – 1 cup cherry tomatoes
salt and pepper to taste
The Bondi Baker Method
Step 1- Preheat oven to 170 degrees.
Step 2- In a bowl, whisk the eggs and almond milk with the basil, salt and pepper. Set aside.
Step 3- In an oven safe cast iron skillet, about 8-9 inches, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add the onion and celery and sauté about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté another 2 minutes. Add the broccoli, zucchini and cooked potatoes and sauté for 10 minutes. Add the cherry tomatoes and sauté for another 1-2 minutes, until the tomatoes start to soften. Salt and pepper to taste.
Step 4- Turn down the heat to medium low heat and pour the egg mixture over the vegetables and stir once. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the eggs are starting to set and there isn’t a lot of liquid running around the pan. Make sure to lift the bottom of the frittata with the spatula to allow the liquidy egg on top to run underneath and cook.
Step 5- Place the skillet in the oven and bake for about 12-15 minutes, until the eggs are set, golden brown and look a little ‘puffy’. Let cool before serving.
For the picture I placed the mixture in a deep, small square pan and cut into two large slices. Another option would be to use muffin tins to make individual portions. After sautéing the vegetables, evenly distribute them among 6-8 lined muffin tins. Evenly pour the egg mixture over each one. Bake about 25-30 minutes until the frittatas are firm and lightly brown.
