An Easy Low-Carb Veggie and Egg Frittata Recipe

It has taken me 49 years, but I made my first frittata in 2018. When you try to eat lower-carb in your diet, breakfast is often challenging. Stratas and other casseroles sound good, but they contain a high amount of carbs either through bread or potatoes.

Carbohydrates, in general, can be confusing to people. Your body needs carbohydrates for fuel and carbohydrates are extremely important in a diet. The key in weight loss success though for me was choosing the right carbohydrates for fuel.

When I tell you that I'm eating lower-carb foods then I'm fueling up on lettuce, tomatoes, and vegetables. All of those foods contain essential carbohydrates. I have reduced my intake of refined higher carbs like white bread, pasta, and processed foods.

For this lower-carb breakfast frittata, I used 3 squash,  a few broccoli florets, 1/2  onion, tsp of minced garlic, a sprinkle of dried basil, 8 grape tomatoes and a handful of cheddar cheese. I used eight eggs plus salt and pepper. Did I measure? No, not really. I sauteed the squash and onion for about 12 minutes until browned and soft.  I added the grape tomatoes to add a touch of holiday color to the frittata.

You could use any type of vegetables you have on hand for a low-carb frittata. It's lower-carb because it does not have a crust like a quiche. Eggs are a good source of protein and this dish will keep you full most of the day.

After sauteeing my veggies, I whisked eight eggs in a bowl. I also added salt and pepper to the eggs. I use Himalayan pink salt mostly in my diet.

Pour the veggie mixture into a pie pan. Add the eggs. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes until the center of the frittata is set.

The easy frittata is attractive and would make a great holiday brunch or breakfast idea.
