Mastering the art of a veggie frittata is key to every healthy cook's recipe repertoire. Frittatas are great warm, room temperature, or cold, and store and pack well for simple meals on the go.

Serves: 6

Why It's Good For You:

The combo of eggs and veggies creates a nutrition powerhouse in this dish. It's a fantastic balance of protein from the egg whites, healthy carbs from veggies, and good fats from the olive oil and egg yolks. Whole eggs are rich in choline, which contributes to brain and memory development, yet about 90% of Americans do not get enough of it. Eggs are also an excellent source of vitamin D, vitamin B12, phosphorus, and riboflavin. The veggies up the health of this dish with a good dose of fiber, plus extra vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. This no-sugar-added, balanced meal will help keep your blood sugar stable and keep your energy levels high.

Hi Meenal, it depends on the recipe. Probably not in this frittata as egg is the main ingredient, but when used as a binder or thickening agent a flax egg can work great. To make a flax egg, combine one tablespoon ground flax seeds with 3 tablespoons warm water (the water must be warm). Let it sit for 15-30 minutes to let it thicken. That will work as a thickener or binder in some recipes. The link that Karelle provided below is great!
