This light and fluffy Spinach Asparagus Frittata is easy to make and ready on your table in 30 minutes. Make it for breakfast, lunch, dinner or brunch!
Just slice it into a bite size pieces (maybe wedges) and serve with some dip (a spicy one would be definitely the right choice here). I bet they will go down well.
You see, I think about bite size food a lot because here in Spain everything is about tapas. Pubs and restaurants are full of them. The Spaniards can turn anything into tapas. They also serve their favorite Omelette Tortilla Espanola and Traditional Paella in small portions (a.k.a. tapas).
But let’s talk about this spinach asparagus frittata! Making it is easy and that is exactly what I like about it. Many years back, frittata was the only thing I would make. I would add any ingredients we had in the fridge. No matter what I put in, it always turned out great. And that’s what I like about frittata.
This time I made spinach asparagus frittata. There are only a few ingredients so it’s important to season it right. Spinach and asparagus will definitely give the omelette great flavors but we need something more. Something like onion and garlic. Garlic and spinach go hand in hand and onion is always a great ingredient to add to anything, really.
I used 5 eggs to make this easy frittata. The eggs are whisked first. Now take your time. You want to whisk them well. Then add milk, salt, pepper and thyme. Give it a one last whisk and your egg mixture is ready to be poured over the veggies.
Now sautéing the veggies will not take long. I’d say about 5 minutes. Start with onions. Sauté them for about a minute before adding spinach. If you feel like it’s way too much spinach for your skillet, then add this in 2 stages. Spinach will reduce its size significantly and pretty quick (like in a minute or two).

When you have enough space in the skillet, it’s time to add asparagus. Again, sauté this for about 2 minutes before pouring over the egg mixture. Reduce the heat and cook until you see the eggs starting to set around the edges. Then transfer into a preheated oven and bake until the eggs are set completely.
Tips for Making a Frittata:
- Make sure you use oven-proof skillet
- I highly recommend using a non-stick frying pan/skillet. It makes your life easier. Nothing sticks to it and you actually get the frittata easily out.
- Add as much cheese as you desire or omit completely.
- You can also add mushrooms in
