Total Time:
Level: Easy
Serves: 4


  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • ½ red onion (sliced)
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • 2 c. broccoli florets
  • ½ red bell pepper (thinly sliced)
  • coarse salt
  • 4 large egg white
  • 4 whole large eggs
  • pepper


  1. Heat 1 tsp olive oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add ½ red onion (sliced); cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, 8 to 10 min.
  2. Add 2 Tbsp water, 2 cups broccoli florets, ½ red bell pepper (thinly sliced), and a pinch of coarse salt. Cook, covered, stirring occasionally, 5 min.
  3. Whisk 4 large egg whites until foamy and white. Beat 4 whole large eggs in another bowl. Stir eggs into whites with ½ tsp coarse salt, plus pepper to taste. Fold in the cooked vegetables.
  4. Rinse and dry pan and heat 2 tsp more olive oil over medium-low heat. Pour in egg mixture. Cook, pulling cooked egg from edges with a rubber spatula to let uncooked egg flow underneath, until frittata begins to set, about 4 min.
  5. Cover, and continue to cook until set, 6 to 8 min. Broil to brown top if you like.
  6. Cut into 4 wedges.
