Artichoke & Red Pepper Frittata

  • Active Time 35m

2 servings

For an impromptu supper, nothing beats a frittata, the Italian version of an omelet. This one relies on the convenience of canned artichokes, which are a good, delicious source of fiber.

ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 4 large eggs
  • One 14-ounce can artichoke hearts, rinsed and coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

directions

Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the bell pepper and cook until tender, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and crushed red pepper; cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.

Whisk the eggs in a medium bowl. Stir in the artichoke hearts, Parmesan, oregano, salt, pepper and the bell pepper mixture.

Set a rack about 4 inches from the heat source; preheat the broiler.

Brush the pan with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil; heat over medium heat. Pour in the egg mixture and tilt to distribute evenly. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the bottom is light golden, lifting the edges to allow uncooked egg to flow underneath, 3 to 4 minutes. Place the pan under the broiler and cook until the top is set, 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Slide the frittata onto a platter and cut into wedges.
