Broccoli Frittata

Recipe Summary

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Number of servings: 4


    • 1/2 cup non-fat cottage cheese
    • 2 cups fat-free egg substitute
    • 1 onion, diced
    • 1 tsp olive oil
    • 1 package (10 ounce) frozen chopped broccoli
    • 1/2 tsp dried dill
    • 2 tsp margarine


Mix cottage cheese and egg substitute together; set aside. In a large non-stick frying pan, over medium heat, sauté onion in oil for 5 minutes, or until soft. Add broccoli and dill; sauté for 5 minutes, or until broccoli mixture is heated through. Add to egg mixture.

Wipe out the frying pan, and place it over medium-high heat; let it stand for about 2 minutes. Add 1 tsp margarine, and swirl the pan to distribute it. Add half of the egg mixture; lift and rotate the pan so that the eggs are evenly distributed. As the eggs set around the edges, lift them to allow uncooked portions to flow underneath. Turn the heat to low, cover the pan, and cook until the top is set.

Invert onto a serving plate and cut into wedges. Repeat with remaining 1 tsp margarine and egg mixture.
