Asparagus and Tomato Frittata with Feta RecipeMay 15, 2020
This simple Asparagus and Tomato Frittata with Feta is a light and healthy breakfast recipe that is perfect for feeding a crowd on the weekend or prepping ahead of time for easy breakfasts and lunches.
A frittata packed with seasonal veggies and Feta cheese is a great way to get your day started. Since this Asparagus and Tomato Frittata is delicious hot or cold, it is a great recipe to keep in your fridge all week for a quick breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
This healthy Asparagus Frittata is one of those recipes that can serve as a blueprint anytime you want to make a frittata. Using the basic proportions for the eggs, veggies, milk, and cheese, you can swap in different things to create your own frittatas. I also love substituting a thick and chunky salsa for the tomatoes to create a spicy frittata. It's delicious.
Since Feta can be a polarizing ingredient, especially for children, feel free to use a different kind of cheese instead of the Feta. You could try shredded mozzarella, cheddar, or jack cheese. You could also try ricotta, goat cheese, or even blue cheese to create something unique and delicious.
Lastly, if you can’t find good fresh tomatoes, you can use drained canned tomatoes. If you like smoky flavor, try the fire roasted canned tomatoes. For a touch of heat, you could use the canned tomatoes with green chilies.
