Broccoli Frittata

(4 servings)

  • 1/2 cup non-fat cottage cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
  • 2 cups fat-free egg substitute
  • 1 10-ounce package of frozen chopped broccoli
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoon margarine
  • 1 onion - diced
In large non-stick frying pan over medium heat, saute onions in oil for 5 minutes, or until soft. Add broccoli and dill; saute for 5 minutes, or until broccoli is heated through.

In a large bowl, mix eggs, and cottage cheese. Stir in broccoli mixture. Wipe out frying pan, then place it over medium-high heat and let stand for about 2 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon margarine and swirl the pan to distribute it. Add half of the egg mixture; lift and rotate pan so that eggs are evenly distributed.

As eggs set around the edges, lift them to allow uncooked portions to flow underneath. Turn heat to low, cover the pan, and cook until top is set. Invert onto a serving plate and cut into wedges. Repeat with remaining 1 teaspoon margarine and egg mixture.

It's low-fat, but high-flavor. A great way to get a portion of vegetables in the morning.
