Asparagus Frittata is a diabetic friendly recipe and ready in 20 minutes. It’s spring and asparagus are in season! A great way to enjoy them is sautéed with some shallots and cooked up with eggs into an easy frittata. This beautiful Asparagus Frittata recipe is remarkably simple to make! This frittata is cooked on the stovetop, rather than baking in the oven.

Talk about versatile: A good frittata is an egg dish that can be served for breakfast, lunch, or dinner; tastes as good (and arguably better) cold or at room temperature as it does warm; and can be packed with just about anything—including leftovers.

Although frittatas feel special, they are the ultimate clean-out-the-fridge meal.  They are fabulous for breakfast, brunch, lunch or even dinner, and a delicious way to feed a crowd.  This frittata recipe is creamy, soft and custardy loaded with asparagus, scallions and Parmesan cheese for an explosion of texture and flavor. 

Make-ahead – The frittata can be served immediately or warm. Once cooled to room temperature, it can stand for up to an hour. A cooled frittata can be refrigerated up to 1 day. Serve cold, bring to room temperature, or reheat before serving.

This Frittata pairs well with Fresh Tomato Crostini and Hash Brown Potato Cakes. Asparagus is such a versatile vegetable, check out more Aparagus Recipes.
