Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 head broccoli florets
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped (I prefer red, yellow or orange)
  • 2 tsp canola oil (can use avocado oil or olive oil)
  • 1 dozen eggs
  • 1 c shredded cheese
  • 2 c low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp flour
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 9x13 pan.
  • Prepare veggies. Chop onion and bell pepper (if serving to baby might want a slightly smaller chop). Pick apart broccoli florets into small pieces and remove most of stem.
  • Heat a medium-sized frying pan to medium heat. Add canola oil and mix around pan. Add onions and mix into oil. Cook ~3-4 minutes until they start softening.
  • Add broccoli and red bell pepper. Mix in with onions. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cook 1-2 minutes, then cover with a lid to steam for another 2-3 minutes until broccoli looks bright green. Remove veggies from stovetop.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs. Add in cottage cheese, cheese, baking powder and flour. Add in veggies. Add salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to 9x13 pan.
  • Bake at 350°F for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and enjoy!
