  • 2 bell peppers (any color), diced
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

For the Herb Sauce:

  1. Preheat and Prepare: Heat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Roast Vegetables: Toss broccoli and cauliflower florets with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread them on the prepared baking sheet and roast for 20-25 minutes until tender-crisp.
  3. Cook Aromatics: While vegetables roast, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Sauté onion, carrot, and bell peppers until softened.
  4. Prepare Frittata Mixture: In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, flour, milk, dill, parsley, and salt.
  5. Combine Ingredients: Remove roasted vegetables from the oven, let cool slightly, and then stir into the egg mixture along with the cherry tomatoes.
  6. Assemble Frittata: Heat a thin layer of olive oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Pour in the frittata mixture, ensuring even distribution. Top with shredded mozzarella cheese.
  7. Bake: Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the eggs are set and the cheese is golden brown.
  8. Make Herb Sauce: Mix mayonnaise, yogurt, dill, pickled cucumbers, and garlic in a small bowl to create the herb sauce.
  9. Serve: Cut the frittata into wedges and serve warm with the herb sauce on the side.
