Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet.

Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

Similar recipes are Spring Frittata With Asparagus & Radishes, Spring Onion And Greens Frittata, and Spring onion and feta frittata.

Sparkling Wine are my top picks for Frittata. Even if you aren't making mimosas, sparkling wine is great with eggs for two reasons. One, if you're eating eggs early in the day, sparkling wine has less alcohol. Secondly, it cleanses the palate, which is important since yolk is known to coat the palate. You could try La Marca. Reviewers quite like it with a 5 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 20 dollars per bottle.

La Marca

Flavor is fresh and clean, with ripe citrus, lemon, green apple, and touches of grapefruit, minerality, and some toast.

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Heat the coconut oil in a large oven-safe pan or cast iron skillet over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the onions, a pinch of salt, a pinch of pepper, and 1/4 tsp of the dried basil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the edges of the onions begin to turn golden and caramelize (about 8-10 minutes).
  2. While the onions are cooking, steam the asparagus until tender and bright green. This took me about 5 to 7 minutes. Set the asparagus aside when done. This can be done ahead of time if needed.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs with a good pinch of salt and the rest of the dried basil until the eggs are lighter in color and have gained a bit of volume.
  4. When the onions are nice and caramelized, spread them out in an even layer in the bottom of your pan. Making sure the heat is on medium, pour in the egg mixture. Once the edges of the frittata are set, arrange the asparagus on top of the eggs (you can do this in any way you like). Carefully place the frittata in the oven. Bake it in the oven until the top is puffed and set, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cool the frittata slightly before serving or moving to a plate or platter. It should slide out of the pan easily.
