Editor’s Note: This recipe was brought to us by Alison Wu. She recently hosted us for a health-inspired brunch at her Portland home, and we’ve been obsessed with her Instagram account for quite some time — I mean, have you seen her layered smoothies?! #goals Today, Alison is sharing with us her go-to recipe for a summer brunch. Get ready to dig in!

Frittatas are simple, easy-to-make and pack a serious flavor punch. I love changing them up with the seasons, but I always include lots of fresh herbs. This recipe includes caramelized onions as well as chives, dill, cilantro, and parsley. I love the sweet yet savory flavor that the caramelized onions gives this dish. I usually serve this frittata with a big green salad on the side, but if you want a more filling meal, serve with potatoes.

Summer Herb & Caramelized Onion Frittata

Serves 6


  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 12 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 cup chives, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup dill, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup caramelized onions
  • 1/2 cup almond ricotta

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a 10" ovenproof skillet, heat avocado oil over medium heat until hot.
  2. Meanwhile whisk together eggs, milk, baking powder, salt, and pepper until well blended. Using a rubber spatula, fold in all the fresh herbs until combined. Lastly, fold in caramelized onions.
  3. Pour the egg mixture into the hot skillet and allow to cook for 5-7 minutes or until bottom is set and edges start to pull away from the sides. Before moving to the oven, sprinkle the top of the frittata with the ricotta.
  4. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake until set, about 15-18 minutes. Enjoy!
