Vegetarian Asparagus Frittata Recipe

Day 121.

I received a bunch of asparagus in my CSA box this week, which already went into my Roasted Veggie Pizza earlier this week. I pulled some of the leftover roasted asparagus to make this delicious-sounding frittata. The original calls for spinach and feta cheese. Yummy ingredients, for sure, but not ones I keep on hand. So, instead, I used mozzarella and some chopped Napa Cabbage (also from the CSA box). Mmm.

Asparagus Frittata
Adapted from Asparagus, Spinach & Feta Cheese Frittata.
3 large eggs
1 tsp. olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
6 asparagus spears, tough ends removed and cut into 1 inch pieces
1 C Napa cabbage, chopped
2 green onions, sliced
1/4 C shredded mozzarella cheese
House seasoning, to taste

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs. Set aside.

In a small frying pan, heat up the olive oil. Add the garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes on medium heat. Add the asparagus, cabbage, and green onions. Cook until the asparagus is tender and the cabbage is wilted (about 5-7 minutes). I actually just cooked the onions and cabbage in this step, as my asparagus was already fire-roasted.

Pour the egg mixture over the asparagus, spinach, and onions. Sprinkle in half of the cheese. Cook for about 5-6 minutes on low heat.

When the eggs are mostly set, sprinkle the fritatta with the rest of the feta cheese. Put the pan into the oven. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the fritatta is firm and the cheese is melted.

Cut fritatta into wedges and serve.
Serves 4

The Results
Mmm...creamy and crunchy with that yummy snap of the cabbage and asparagus. I love this recipe. As with any frittata, you could change just about anything and get away with whatever flavor combination you enjoy.
