This vegetable frittata is filled with healthy ingredients like broccoli, bell peppers, and spinach. Ready in 20 minutes, it’s perfect for breakfast, or a light lunch.
When it comes to a homemade breakfast – the faster the better. Even on the weekends, I don’t want to spend an hour in the kitchen first thing in the morning.
You’ll love this vegetable frittata because it’s quick to make and ready in about 20 minutes. Plus, it’s filled with tons of fresh vegetables, ensuring you’ll start your day on the right foot.
The best part about frittatas? They are totally easy to customize! Meat eater? Toss in a handful of cooked bacon, ground beef, sausage, or chicken before baking.
Don’t have some of these vegetables on hand? No problem! Toss in whatever you have on hand – asparagus, kale, leeks, or zucchini would also be great choices.
I made my frittata in a 10-inch Lodge cast iron pan (affiliate link). If you don’t have a cast iron pan, you can use any oven-safe skillet you have on hand.
Or, cook your veggies on the stove top, then combine all of your ingredients into a baking dish or a pie pan.
By using a different sized pan, your cooking times may vary, so use your eyes and your instincts when checking for doneness. Your frittata shouldn’t be jiggly or loose in the middle. It should look firm like a fully cooked egg.
