Asparagus Frittata Recipe

You would never guess that egg substitute is used in this fun variation on the classic frittata. I loaded it with fresh asparagus in honor of springtime. —James Bates, Hermiston, Oregon
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2/3 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1-1/2 cups egg substitute
  • 5 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese

Directions

  • 1. Preheat broiler. In a large saucepan, bring 4 cups water to a boil. Add asparagus; cook, uncovered, 2-4 minutes or just until crisp-tender. Drain asparagus and immediately drop into ice water. Drain and pat dry.
  • 2. In a small bowl, whisk egg substitute, 3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.
  • 3. In a 10-in. ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook and stir until tender. Stir in asparagus and parsley. Pour in egg mixture. Reduce heat to medium; cook, covered, 8-10 minutes or until eggs are nearly set. Uncover; sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese.
