Eggs, parsley, and olive oil make this a nutritious option for breakfast. Goat cheese is key to the delicious flavor.


  • 6 large omega-3 eggs

  • 2 large omega-3 egg whites

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 cup medium onion, finely chopped

  • 1 cup grape tomatoes or cherry tomatoes, halved

  • ¼ cup crumbled soft goat cheese (½ ounce)

  • 15 ounces black beans (1 can), drained and rinsed

  • ¼ cup chopped parsley


  1. Heat the broiler with the rack 4 inches from the heat source. In a large bowl, whisk together the whole eggs, egg whites, and parsley; season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

  2. In a medium (10-inch) nonstick ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium. Add onion and tomatoes and cook until the onion has softened, about 6 minutes. Stir in the jalapeno peppers and egg mixture. Sprinkle cheese over top. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook until eggs are almost set, 5 to 7 minutes.

  3. Place frittata under broiler and cook until the top is set and starts to brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, cook beans until heated through (add water if too dry); season with salt and pepper.

  4. Run a rubber spatula around the edge of the pan to loosen the frittata. Carefully slip the frittata out of the pan onto a large serving platter. Serve wedges of frittata with black beans on the side.
