Asparagus, Spinach, and Feta Cheese Frittata Recipe

Asparagus, Spinach, and Feta Cheese Frittata Recipe

I hope you are not sick of asparagus yet, because I have a tasty frittata recipe to share with you today. A few weeks ago I made a lemon orzo salad with asparagus, spinach, and feta. It is my new favorite spring salad. Josh requested a frittata the other day and I used the salad as my flavor inspiration.

I used a mixture of egg whites and one whole egg. I added in garlic, asparagus, spinach, green onions, and feta cheese. I cooked everything on the stove and then popped it in the oven to finish things off. I love how simple frittatas are to make and there are few dishes to do too:)

This frittata is very springy! I love the green colors. We both enjoyed this meal. This frittata would be great for  Mother’s Day brunch, add it to your menu today!

Asparagus, Spinach, and Feta Cheese Frittata

Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients:

6 egg whites
1 large egg
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
6 asparagus spears, tough ends removed and cut into 1 inch pieces
1 cup fresh spinach, chopped
2 green onions, sliced
1/4 cup feta cheese
Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg whites and egg. Set aside.

2. In a small frying pan, heat up the olive oil. Add the garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes on medium heat. Add the asparagus, spinach, and green onions. Cook until the asparagus is tender and the spinach is wilted.

3. Pour the egg mixture over the asparagus, spinach, and onions. Sprinkle in half of the cheese. Cook for about 5-6 minutes on low heat.

4. When the eggs are mostly set, sprinkle the fritatta with the rest of the feta cheese. Put the pan into the oven. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the fritatta is firm and the cheese is melted.

5. Cut fritatta into wedges and serve.

*Note-make sure you use an oven safe pan.

    Sick of asparagus? Never! Looks awesome. I love that there are more veggies than eggs. And feta is a great addition- maybe goat cheese would be yummy too?

    We love frittatas over here! Such a balanced meal, it is nice to add some yolk for color, texture and flavor. This recipe is great any time of day.

    It look really tasty; I only have to wait for asparagus season; I saw them already, but still awfully expensive (20-30 euro per kilo, depending on type and size;)

    I JUST got home from the grocery store with some beautiful asparagus and no real plan for it. Now I have a plan (actually, two plans – this frittata and that salad!) This looks incredible!

    I’ve been cooking more with egg whites. Love the pix!

    My favorite way is to cook with brown sugar. YUM.

    love everything you’ve put in there. i have a jar of feta that needs to be used up. maybe i should give this a go!

    Tracy — April 21, 2010 @ 10:05 am

    Yum! I am not a huge fan of asparagus myself, so this is a great way to sneak some in. ;-)

    Sharlene — April 21, 2010 @ 10:09 am

    Asparagus is one of my favorites but will always play second fiddle to broccoli. I often make eggs with whites and a yolk or two thrown in. Can barely tell the difference. Love this!

    I am pretty sure that I mentioned last time how I have this little addiction problem with Feta…So you are sort of sending me over the edge here. Man…why oh why don’t you live closer? That is SPECTACULAR!

    thanks for the reminder of the lemon orzo salad. I was looking for something just like that to make.

    Green looks great in a frittata! I’ve made asparagus AND spinach frittatas, both with Feta and often with some chopped dill in the mix….a Spring fling on a plate.
