  • 4 scallions or spring onions, chopped
  • 2 cups broccoli, grated or chopped
  • Cracked black pepper
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika

Side Salad

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 2 cups fresh arugula (or greens of choice)
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
  • Toppings: lemon juice, olive oil and salt and pepper to taste
  • Shaved radishes or halved baby tomatoes


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F; generously coat a cast iron or oven-proof pan with nonstick spray and add the avocado oil
  2. Sauté peppers, scallions and chopped broccoli for 5 to 6 minutes until soft; add a pinch of salt and lower the heat

  4. Pour mixture over vegetables in pan; add remaining grated cheese on top, then transfer pan to oven for 10 to 14 minutes, until set and golden brown (frittata mixture can also be baked in individual portions in muffin tins — adjust oven temperature to 375 degrees F and bake for 20 minutes)
  5. In another bowl, mix together greens, fresh dill, a squeeze of lemon, a drizzle of olive oil, a pinch of salt and some shaved radishes or baby tomatoes
