Asparagus Frittata

A frittata is an egg-based Italian dish similar to an omelette or a crustless quiche.

If you love eggs, frittatas are versatile and convenient meal options that you can pack with nutritious and flavour-filled extras.

The egg base of this recipe provides protein, along with choline, iron, selenium, calcium, and vitamins A, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, B12, D, and K.

Adding cheese to the recipe will provide you with a substantial amount of calcium and vitamins A, D, and K2,  and the asparagus amps up your intake of nutrients like folate, copper, potassium, and vitamins A and K1.

If you wanted to get a bit fancy (breakfast for dinner, anyone?), you could add lightly cooked bacon, chorizo, mushrooms, leek or any combination of cooked veggies and cheeses like feta, mozzarella, or cheddar. Treat a frittata like a palette for your palate.
