Spicy Veggie Frittata


1 t. coconut oil
1/4 c. onion 
1/2 jalapeno (you can leave seeds in or take out depending on how spicy you want it)
1 clove garlic
2 baby bella mushrooms
2 heads of steamed broccoli
3 egg whites
1/4 c. spicy cheese (I used raw milk jalapeno jack cheese)
few chopped tomatoes 
parsley for garnish

Heat coconut oil in a small sauce pan.  Finely chop all ingredients.  Add onion, jalapeno and saute until tender.  Add garlic, mushrooms and broccoli and saute until heated.  Pat down all the ingredients, covering the bottom of the pan.  Slowly pour the egg whites over the veggies and cover with lid.  Let cook for 1 minute or until slightly browned on bottom.  Flip the frittata and sprinkle with cheese and cover again until cheese is melted.  Put on plate and garnish with tomatoes and parsley.  I also added hot sauce on the side.

Be careful to not overcook!!

this looks great for Mike. How spicy is it?

It was not that spicy. You could add more or less jalapeño to vary the amount of spice.
