Frittata with Broccoli & Caramelized Onions

Frittatas seem to be another popular Paleo type of recipe. Reason being, they are naturally free of grains (usually!) and you can throw just about any kind of veggies in with the eggs and you’ve got a delicious meal.

I’ve made frittatas with Sweet Potato & Zucchini, with Bacon, “Lettuce” and Tomato. Frittatas are so versatile and so delicious. And super easy to adapt to Paleo…just use coconut milk in place of regular milk, to help thin out the eggs some. And omit any cheese ‘topping.’

Plus, ‘brinner’ or ‘brupper’ is such an easy weeknight meal.

And when we’re talking about Paleo, this might be as cheap as it gets!

In this case, the caramelized onions kick up the flavor. A touch of sweetness to go with the broccoli makes this frittata amazing!

Boom, done. Really delicious and budget-friendly Paleo dinner, lunch, breakfast, brinner or brupper.
