Ingredients

1 tablespoon olive oil
½ each red onion
chopped
1 ½ tablespoons mint leaves
freshly minced
1 ½ tablespoons parsley leaves
freshly minced
8 ounces asparagus
tough ends removed, cut into 1-inch pieces diagonally, steamed for 3 minutes
4 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
1 x salt and black pepper
to taste
*
4 large eggs
beaten

Directions

Position the oven rack to upper middle and preheat the oven to 350℉ (180℃).

Heat the oil in a 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium hight.

Add the red onions, stirring often, and cook until the onions become soft and slightly browned, about 5 minutes.

Stir in the mint, parsley, and aspragus until well combined.

Season with a bit salt and black pepper.

Arrange the mixture into a single layer. Reduce heat to medium-low.

While the vegetables are cooking, mix together cheese, salt, black pepper to taste, and eggs until well blended.

Pour the egg-cheese mixture over the vegetables in the skillet.

Let the mixture cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until it starts to set.

With a heat-proof rubber spatular lift the edge that's closer to you, then tilt the pan to allow the runny mixture to go underneath.

Continue to cook for another 1 minute, then lift the edge and tilt the skillet once again.

Keep repeating the same steps until the eggs are not runny, about 2 to 3 minutes.

Put the skillet into preheated oven, and bake until it sets completely, about 3 minutes.

Remove from the oven, loosen the edge with a rubber spatular.

Transfer the frittata onto a serving plate.

Cut into wedges and serve warm.

Had some fresh-local asparagus, also had lots of fresh mint and parsley growing at the back yard, then we came out this recipe, and it was absolutely delicious.

Cheesy, herby, creamy and well satisfied our palate and tummy. You can make it for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner, it's a dish that's perfect at any time.
