Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F; generously coat a cast iron or oven-proof pan with nonstick spray and add the avocado oil

  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
