Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil divided
  • 1 4-oz pack pre-sliced exotic mushroom blend
  • 1 1/2 cups asparagus trimmed and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 large egg whites

  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded pecorino Romano cheese divided
Recipe Instructions
  1. Arrange oven rack 6 inches from the broiler. Preheat broiler to high.
  2. Heat 2 teaspoons of the olive oil in an 8-inch, ovenproof, nonstick skillet over high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook, 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Reduce the heat to medium-high and add the asparagus. Cook in skillet for 2 minutes more.
  3. While the mushrooms are cooking, whisk together the eggs, egg whites, chives, parsley, salt, pepper, and 1/4 cup of the cheese in a medium bowl. Add the remaining teaspoon oil to the pan, stirring the vegetables to coat. Pour the egg mixture over the mushrooms and asparagus and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for 1 1/2 minutes, running a rubber spatula around the edges of the pan to keep the eggs from sticking.
  4. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup cheese over the egg mixture and broil it for 2 1/2–3 minutes or until frittata is golden brown and lightly puffed. Remove the frittata from the skillet, cut into 4 pieces, and serve it immediately.
