Hired Sandi Autry and this is clean eating the Red Mountain way I tasty fritatta is such a satisfying meal, especially when it’s loaded up with some of your favorite veggies. Here’s what you’ll need. Six egg whites I always go for the extra large, three cups of fresh asparagus, some sun-dried tomatoes, and fresh basil. Let’s start with the asparagus. Chop them into bite sized pieces about a half inch long. Then in a hot skillet with some zero-calorie cooking spray pan grill the asparagus until they’re cooked but still firm. You can add a little water during the cooking process and some seasonings like garlic salt, that remember to check the ingredients. Sometimes there’s sugar added to spices. These look perfect. So it’s on to the next step. Chop about eight sun dried tomatoes in half or in strips. These are definitely flavor bombs along with fresh basil. Both will give this frittata that classic Mediterranean flavor. I’ve got two tablespoons of basil that I’ll chop fine. Now the eggs. This is an egg white only frittata so I’m taking six eggs and separating them. Then whisk the whites until they’re light and frothy. Now add in those tasty pan grilled asparagus, the sun-dried tomatoes and the basil as well as a little pepper and salt. Give it all a good stir and then pour the mixture into a casserole dish coded with zero calorie cooking spray. You can bake it in your oven at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes. Or if you have a convection air fryer oven like this one from Cuisineart. It cooks up in about 10 minutes. I call this my Easy Bake oven and I am obsessed with it. And there you have a simple and very healthy meal. Just serve yourself a nice portion. Oh yes please. And enjoy a dish as guilt free as it gets asparagus and sun-dried tomato frittata.
