One of my go-to easy meals when I need something quick and healthy is a frittata.  Not only can this dish be thrown together in 10 minutes, but it’s an excellent way to use up any veggies in the fridge that are starting to look a little past their prime (especially those leafy greens)!

As a dietitian, I’m happy to share that frittatas are a great way to get in quality protein, essential nutrients, and lots of vegetables (I’ve included more details on the nutrition benefits of this recipe below). There is no need to shy away from the yolk either – the fats found here will help you absorb any of the fat-soluble vitamins present in the veggies you throw in.

While you can add any vegetables or toppings you have on hand, I am particularly loving this combination. Between the tomatoes, feta, and basil, dare I say that this almost tastes like pizza? ALMOST. It kind of looks like a pizza too now that I think about it 😉

What Is A Frittata?

A frittata is an egg-based dish that is most similar to a quiche, but without a crust.

It’s one of my go-to easy meals because of how versatile they are to make. You can completely customize the ingredients based on what you have on hand – any veggie, herb, cheese, spice, meat, etc. can work. It’s an AWESOME way to clean out your fridge and reduce food waste!

Frittatas can truly be enjoyed for any meal – they’re great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even a weekend brunch. Because they store and reheat well, they’re also a great option to include in your weekly meal prep.

Ingredients Needed

All you need to make this easy frittata recipe are 7 ingredients:

  • eggs
  • small tomatoes, vine-ripened if possible (you can use cherry, pearl, or grape varieties)
  • baby arugula
  • feta cheese
  • garlic powder
  • fresh basil
  • olive oil

Full ingredient measurements and detailed instructions are located in the recipe card at the bottom of this post!

Recipe Modification & Ingredient Swaps

  1. Arugula can be swapped with another leafy green, like spinach, kale (esp. baby kale), etc.
  2. Feta cheese can be swapped with another cheese, like goat or parmesan.
  3. If you want to use fresh garlic (or even onions/shallots) in place of garlic powder, you can mince those and sauté in the oil before adding the veggies.
  4. If you want to throw in another veggie, some sliced mushrooms or bell peppers could replace the tomatoes.
  5. For a dairy-free option, simply use a dairy-free alternative to feta (or omit completely)

Want to make it for a group of people? Just increase the servings as needed! I usually recommend a 2-egg serving per person 🙂

What To Serve With Frittata

Since this recipe is primarily a source of protein, healthy fats, and veggies, I’d recommend serving it with a carbohydrate of sorts to round out the meal.

Some ideas:

  • crispy, toasted baguette, sourdough, or whole wheat toast
  • roasted potatoes (linked my go-to recipe here!)
  • a whole grain, like quinoa, millet, or farro

How To Store & Reheat Leftovers

Leftovers of this recipe will keep for about 3 days in an airtight container in the fridge. It’s a great lunch option that’s either quick to make from scratch or reheat in the microwave!

Ingredients

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 8-10 small tomatoes, halved (pearl, cherry, or grape varieties)
  • 3 cups baby arugula
  • 2 tbsp crumbled feta cheese
  • A few leaves of fresh basil, chopped

Instructions

  • Whisk eggs with garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Set aside.
