Healthy Cooking Tips: Whisking eggs well helps to make your frittata a little fluffier. However, this one is mostly vegetables, with just enough eggs to hold it together, so it won't be very fluffy. Try to use a non-stick pan as close to the 10-inch size as possible. This size keeps the vegetables from spreading out too much and over cooking.
