Step by Step Instructions
Turn on your oven’s broiler or grill to preheat. Make sure there is a rack placed on the 2nd level to the top.
Melt your oil in a medium-sized, oven-safe pan over medium heat. Add mushrooms and sauté until softened, about 4-5 minutes. Add bell pepper and sauté w/ mushrooms for another 3-4 mins.
Add spinach and garlic to pan and constantly stir mixture for 1 minute.
Beat your eggs together in a bowl with salt + pepper.
Turn off the heat + add your eggs to the pan with your vegetables. Swirl the pan + press down the veggies until you have one even layer, covered in egg.
Put the entire pan into the oven, under the grill or broiler for 3-4 minutes or until the egg is puffy, set, and slightly golden brown on top.
If using parmesan cheese, once out of the oven, sprinkle cheese on top of the frittata and place back in the oven under the broiler for 1 minute or until melted.
