Ingredients

  • ½ bunch asparagus
  • 3 small beets
  • 1.5 Tbs olive oil
  • 6 large eggs
  • ¾ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ¼ cup feta cheese
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. While oven pre-heats, peel beets and slice into thin rounds. Toss asparagus and beets in olive oil and place on a lined baking sheet in a single layer. Roast veggies for 15-20 minutes, or until tender. Note: the asparagus may roast faster than the beets if your stalks are on the thinner side. Do not turn off the oven after removing the veggies!
  • While the asparagus and beets cool down a bit, heat last ½ tbs of olive oil in an 8” cast iron skillet over medium heat. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, cheese, eggs, salt, and pepper. Pour mixture into heated skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • While eggs are cooking, cut asparagus first in half length-wise then horizontally into quarters. If you want more of a texture, skip cutting them length-wise and just quarter the stalks. Add roasted vegetables to egg mixture and cook 2-3 more minutes, or until the bottom begins to set.
  • Transfer skillet to oven and cook 8-10 minutes, or until set.
