Ingredients
  • 1 garlic clove thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil or canola oil
  • 3 1/2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes optional
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup cheese grated
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit.
  2. In a skillet or pot, heat 1 tablespoon olive or canola oil. Add the garlic and cook over moderately high heat for a few seconds.
  3. Add broccoli florets and crushed red pepper (if using) and cook for 1 minute. Stir in a few tablespoons of water and cook the broccoli covered over moderate heat until it is crisp-tender, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. While the broccoli cools, whisk the eggs in a bowl with salt and pepper (about 1/4 teaspoons each or less). Stir in the broccoli.
  5. If you are using an oven-safe skillet you can return the skillet with the broccoli to the stovetop and heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. Pour in the eggs and cook over moderately low heat until set around the edges, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle the frittata with the cheese. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake the frittata until the center is just set, about 12 minutes.
  6. Or - if you don't have an oven-safe skillet, transfer the broccoli-egg-mix to a greased pie pan and sprinkle with cheese. Bake the frittata in the oven about 15 minutes, until egg is set.
  7. Serve the frittata warm or at room temperature.
