Broccoli, Goats Cheese & Olive Frittata

Broccoli & Olive frittata

A delicious broccoli frittata that is full of flavour and colour.   The goats cheese and olives go well with the broccoli but the whole frittata is completely transformed by the tarragon.  

Broccoli Frittata

There is something about the tarragon in this frittata that takes the flavour to another level.  Although there is only a tablespoon of this fragrant herb, it has complete dominance over this dish without it being too powerful. I devoured this like a pack of hungry wolves on a bucket of KFC!  “Just one more piece, then I’ll stop” I muttered to myself as munched my way through it.  Suddenly, I was left with an empty pan and a slight feeling of guilt and shame.   Or what we call Tuesday afternoon in our house…

As well as a large frittata, this recipe would be divine in smaller mini egg muffin versions too.  I have a post stick somewhere in my office to do this.  However, tarragon is not a herb in abundance here so I cannot cook it on demand.  I shall be full of girlish glee when I next find it in the supermarket here.  The same goes for mint at the moment.  It’s like gold dust and when it is suddenly available I stock up with as much as I can make last a week.  Don’t ask about growing your own either..that’s a long story for me here…Did it for a while and local African snails enjoyed a delicious minty breakfast.

 Frittata

One of my favourite things about a frittata is the mere simplicity of them.  It’s just throwing a few vegetables, a dash of cheese and a smattering of herbs together and you have a nourishing and delicious dish. Add a side salad and a tasty coleslaw, then you have got yourself a delicious meal.

    Are these regular black olives or kalamata black olives?

    Hi Angela! What a great combination. Cannot wait to try! My tarragon grows in a self watering pot that I bring into the garage through the winter. Sorry yours did not make it! I just made my first Frittata last week with hamburger and ricotta cheese and onions, etc, and am hooked on the flavor, easiness & able to have hot or cold. That recipe did do most of the cooking in the oven (350) which I liked–did not have to stir the eggs and the bottom did not overcook. So I may adapt your method to that one. But thanks so much! Love your ideas!! L

      Hi Linda, I also like to bake a frittata in the oven for ease, although it can take a bit longer. Glad you enjoy frittata’s too! Happy baking!
