Broccoli Frittata, 4 carb grams

From Dr. Weil's Optimum Health Plan

1 Serving

This is a quick way of incorporating broccoli into your breakfast. You can use two eggs or just egg whites (four of them) if you prefer. Leave out the Parmesan cheese if you prefer.


1 egg
1 egg white
1 tbsp Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp salsa
1/2 cup chopped, cooked broccoli


1. Use bright green, crunchy, cooked broccoli and chop it fine in the food processor or by hand.

2. Mix all the ingredients together and pour into a small non-stick skillet, lightly sprayed with cooking spray or rubbed with a paper towel moistened with olive oil. Cook over medium heat for 2-3 minutes until set.

3. Turn the frittata over (don't worry if it breaks up) or put the skillet in a hot oven for 2 minutes to set the top.
