Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1.5 cups coarsely chopped asparagus
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 clove garlic minced or crushed
  • 2 cups baby arugula
  • 12 egg whites
  • 1/2 shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sliced Bergamino di Bufala mozzarella, burrata, or any cheese you prefer
  • harissa to taste
  • Favorite crusty bread

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix together the olive oil, salt and pepper, tomatoes, and asparagus and mix until all the veggies are coated. Spread out on a foil-lined baking sheet and roast in the oven until the tomatoes are shriveled, about 10 minutes. Broil the veggies for 5 minutes, getting some of the tomatoes a little blistered.
  3. Melt the butter in a nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add the garlic and arugula and cook for 2 minutes until it's wilted. Transfer to a bowl.
  4. Whisk the eggs. Reheat the skillet on medium-low heat. Pour the eggs into the skillet and spoon the roasted tomatoes, asparagus, and arugula on top. Sprinkle with the extra-sharp cheddar cheese and dot with the sliced cheese and harissa (to your own personal taste and heat tolerance).
  5. Cook until the edges have set (about 5 to 6 minutes). Transfer to the oven and bake 20 minutes or until cooked through.
  6. Broil for 5 minutes, crisping and making the top crusty. Take out and let cool for a little and then use a spatula to transfer to a serving plate.
  7. Eat by itself or serve on top of crusty bread spread with some harissa.
