  • olive oil
    2 tbsp
  • asparagus (chopped into bite-size pieces)
    1 bunch
  • baby bok choy (chopped)
  • salt
    1/2 tsp
  • black pepper
    1/4 tsp
  • eggs
  • mozzarella cheese (shredded)
    2/3 cup


  1. Preheat a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat.

  2. Add oil, asparagus, bok choy, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies soften, 2–3 minutes.

  3. Crack the eggs into a large bowl and whisk to combine.

  4. Preheat the oven to broil.

  5. Reduce heat to low and pour the egg mixture into the skillet. Gently lift the cooked eggs around the edge with a spatula until the sides are firm but the top is still runny, 3–4 minutes.

  6. Sprinkle cheese over the frittata. Place the skillet in the oven and broil until the top is set and the cheese is melted, 1–2 minutes. Slice into six equal pieces.
