Broccoli Frittata

Broccoli Frittata

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 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.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank scrambler for this recipe.

Agreed with Brad... Well I'll just substitute the fake egg with real ones, and the fake butter with real butter, and fake cottage cheese with real cottage cheese, and fake broccoli with fresh broccoli... but mm mmm can't wait to try this!

In reference to the comment below: Low carb does not mean high fat. In fact, if one follows a low carb diet and eats foods high in fat (which can and often does mean Saturated and/or trans fats)then one can expect to high cholesterol. Usually with low carb diets, there is a good amount of meats/cheeses/nuts. These all contain high amounts of fats, some have good fats, others....well, not so good. If following a low carb diet, low fat or fat free is okay, especially if it pertains to those bad fats. Read the label and decide....

I dont get it, if this is a "low carb" recipe then why are you using low fat and fat free products? Looks like someone doesn't quite get the concept of a low carb diet.
