  • 6 eggs large
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley chopped
  • Coarse salt and fresh ground peppercorn
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 jalapeno chiles (ribs and seeds removed for less heat, if desired)
  • 4 oz crumbled goat cheese
  • 15 oz black beans rinsed and drained


  • Heat oven broiler, with rack 4 inches from the heat source.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together whole eggs, egg whites, and parsley; season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  • Heat oil in a medium size oven proof skillet, over medium heat.
  • Add onion, tomatoes, and jalapenos; cook, stirring occasionally, until onion has softened, about 6 minutes.
  • Add egg mixture.
  • Sprinkle evenly with cheese.
  • Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook until eggs are almost set, 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Heat beans in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until warmed through.
  • Uncover skillet and place frittata under broiler.  Cook until the top is set and just beginning to brown, 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Run a flexible spatula around edge of frittata to loosen from pan, then slide onto a plate.
  • Cut frittata into wedges and serve with black beans.
