  • 1 large stalk broccoli, cut into bite-sized florets
  • 4 tablespoons water, divided
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons roasted red pepper, diced
  • 2 ounces cheddar cheese (or other cheese), finely shredded
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Scant 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt (or 1/4 teaspoon table salt)


  1. Prepare the Broccoli:
    • In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the broccoli florets with 2 tablespoons of water.
    • Cover and microwave on high for about 2-3 minutes, or until the broccoli is just tender. Drain and set aside.
  2. Sauté the Onions:
    • In a non-stick skillet, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of water over medium heat.
    • Add the diced onion and sauté until softened and translucent, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Mix the Eggs:
    • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs until well beaten.
    • Stir in the roasted red pepper, cheddar cheese, dried oregano, crushed red pepper flakes, black pepper, and salt.
  4. Combine and Cook:
    • Add the steamed broccoli to the skillet with the onions, distributing them evenly.
    • Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables, gently stirring to combine.
    • Reduce the heat to low and cook without stirring until the edges are set and the center is slightly jiggly, about 5-7 minutes.
  5. Finish in the Oven:
    • Preheat your broiler.
    • Place the skillet under the broiler and cook until the top of the frittata is fully set and golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.
    • Keep a close eye on it to avoid burning.
  6. Serve:
    • Remove the frittata from the oven and let it cool slightly.
    • Slice into wedges and serve warm.
