WIAW – Asparagus, Zucchini & Feta Egg White Frittata

Happy Wednesday – Apparently, we are expecting a 3 day snow storm?? I guess that’s the kind of news you miss when you don’t have a Facebook (I deleted mine for Lent). I just hope it doesn’t continue into next week… We have a plane to catch to the sunshine state!

I made this egg white frittata on Sunday night and cut it into 5 slices to eat during the week. It turned out delicious and keeps me full for 4-5 hours. The stats are pretty awesome as well – 163 calories, 3g fat, 11 carbs and 24 g of protein!

Asparagus, Zucchini & Feta Egg White Frittata

Ingredients

  • 1 large zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 1 lb of asparagus, ends trimmed and cut into 1.5 inch pieces
  • 1 bag of baby spinach
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1.5 small cartons of 100% egg whites (you can use beaters or real eggs – the calorie count will just change)
  • 5 oz of Fat Free Feta
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp of Olive Oil

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • In an oven safe skillet, heat olive oil
  • Add asparagus, spinach, zucchini, onion, garlic & pepper to skillet. Cook on medium heat for 5-7 minutes until asparagus & zucchini is tender and spinach has wilted
  • Pour egg whites over the veggies and mix in feta. Cook an addition 5-7 minutes on medium-low heat until eggs are mostly set.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes until frittata is firm. Broil for the last 1-2 minutes to brown top.

Every morning I just stick my slice in the microwave for about 2 minutes and it’s good to go! Healthy, filling and packed with green veggies 🙂
