So, What is a Frittata Anyway?
Basically, a frittata a crustless quiche.
It’s simply a baked egg dish and can include any fillings, spices, or flavorings you like. From greens to meat to cheese and more, you really can put together any combination with eggs and a bit of milk and turn it into a delicious frittata.
This recipe also happens to be an excellent way to use leftover ingredients before they go bad. So next time you clean out the fridge, toss everything in your crisper drawer into an eggy frittata, and you’ll have a feast to enjoy for any meal.
Ingredients for Roasted Vegetable Frittata
The first step in making this spring vegetable frittata is to roast the veggies. You'll need:
Broccolini. You could also use regular broccoli.
Asparagus. I like to get organic asparagus from the farmer's market.
Olive oil, salt, and pepper.
For the frittata, you'll need:
Eggs. This big-batch recipe uses a full carton of eggs.
Almond milk. Make your own using this easy no-soak method. Or feel free to use a different plant-based milk if you prefer. Just stick to unsweetened.
Seasonings. This frittata is flavored with dried parsley, garlic powder, and dried dill.
Green peas. You can use fresh or frozen.
Parmesan. Pecorino romano will also work.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a bowl, add the broccolini and asparagus along with the olive oil and seasonings: salt and black pepper, mixing everything together until veggies are well coated.
Transfer seasoned veggies to the prepared baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until they are charred and crisp. Remove from oven and let cool before chopping them up into smaller bite-size pieces.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until egg has completely set all around, veggies are cooked, and edges are golden brown.
Once done, remove the frittata from oven and garnish with dried parsley and additional cheese, if desired.
