Another quick, easy, delicious, and healthy one-pan meal! 😁

Feel free to switch out the asparagus for other veggies as the season (and availability) changes. This frittata works great, for instance, with many different types of brassicas and other detoxfriendly veggies. As long as you choose low carb vegetables – or detox-friendly veggies if you’re doing Dr. Emily’s 10-Day Detox – you’ll be on plan for the detox, and for low carb, keto, CleanKeto, Paleo and Whole30.

Optional adjustments: using the coconut cream will make the texture more fluffy and quiche-like. If you prefer a more classic, denser frittata texture, leave out the coconut cream. Also, you can add chopped cooked bacon or sausage to this to amp up the protein content and make it heartier and more filling. Add these in when you add the arugula to the pan.

Serve your wedges of frittata with an optional spoonful of cultured veggies on the side, and/or a dollop of cultured coconut cream on top, for an extra boost of nutrition and flavor! This frittata also pairs really well with a mixed green salad with vinaigrette or lemonette.
