Asparagus Frittata

A frittata is made with vegetables smothered in a creamy egg and cheese custard. Unlike quiche, there is no crust so it’s a good gluten free choice. This recipe takes advantage of the extra asparagus prepared as a side to the Tarragon Salmon or the Kale Scramble.

There are some equally tasty ingredients that would well in this recipe. Substitute coconut creamer for the milk and vegan cheese for the swiss cheese and of course, any leftover vegetables would work in place of the asparagus.
