Total Time:

4 servings

  • 2 red bell peppers, halved
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 large eggs plus 8 egg whites
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried mint
  • 8 cups baby spinach (about 10 ounces)
  • 3/4 cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese
  • 8 pitted kalamata olives, halved
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 3 whole-wheat pitas, warmed and cut into wedges
  • Preheat the broiler. Arrange the peppers skin-side up on a baking sheet and broil until charred, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap; set aside. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Soak the onion in a small bowl of cold water; set aside.

  • Whisk the eggs and egg whites in a medium bowl with 1/4 cup water and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a 10-inch nonstick ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and mint; cook until sizzling, 20 seconds. Add the spinach and cook, stirring, until wilted, 2 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Stir in the eggs using a wooden spoon; top with the feta. Cook, undisturbed, until the mixture starts setting around the edges, 2 minutes. Bake in the oven until set and lightly golden, 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, remove the charred skins from the peppers; slice into strips. Drain the onion and toss with the peppers, olives, vinegar and the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Slide the frittata onto a board; let rest 5 minutes. Slice into wedges; drizzle with olive oil. Serve with the pita bread and salad.
