Asparagus Frittata (Gluten-Free)


Photo: CC--JeffreyW

Celiac.com 10/20/2016 - I love a good frittata! A good frittata can hold its own at breakfast, lunch, or dinner, oh, and of course, at brunch.

This frittata marries eggs, ricotta cheese, Gruyere and chives with the lovely and now plentiful asparagus to deliver one very tasty dish.

Ingredients:

  • 6 large eggs
  • ½ cup ricotta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 shallots, sliced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 pound asparagus, tough ends discarded, spears cut diagonally to 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1 cup shredded Gruyere or Swiss cheese

Directions:
Heat butter into a 10-inch cast iron skillet over medium heat.

Add shallots and cook until soft and clear, about 3 minutes.

Add asparagus and cook for 3 more minutes.

Beat together eggs and ricotta cheese, stir in the chives and tarragon.

Pour the egg mixture into the pan and cook until almost set, but still runny on top, about 4 to 5 minutes. While cooking, heat oven broiler.

Sprinkle Gruyere cheese over the eggs and place under the broiler until cheese is melts and and bubbles, and the center is set, about 6 to 8 minutes.

Remove pan from oven with oven mitts and slide frittata onto a serving plate.

Cut into wedges.

Mind the hot pan!

I went into menopause at age 42. I didn't know I had celiac until I was 56. Now I know why my menopause was so early.

Have been dealing with splinter hemorrhages on three of my toe nails since February. I did go to my doctor who rightly so did a very complete blood work-up ruling out other diseases such as lupus and RA and referred me to several other doctors to make sure that it was not cancer, endocarditis, or something serious. I went to the doctors. I have done some research on vitamin deficiency and it seems that some link splinter hemorrhages to vitamin C deficiency. For the past 2 1/2 weeks I have been eating 3 clementines a day (in addition to the usual multivitamin that I take) and it seems to be helping the splinter hemorrhages. One has grown out and not returned. Visited my GI doctor today and talked about malabsorption of nutrients as a potential issue. We are doing more blood work and checking nutrient levels. I have to believe it has something to do with the celiac. Sorry I don't have a better answer, but like you am trying to figure this out. Please let me know if you find any answers, and yes, be sure to check with your doctor to rule out anything serious.

You only need one positive on the celiac panel. I tested positive only to the DGP IgA and had a Marsh Stage IIIB intestinal damage. Good luck!

Welcome to the forum. First, you need to get copies of your celiac test to confirm you actually had it done and what the results were. Second, to confirm a diagnosis, you must obtain biopsies via an endoscopy. Were the doctors gastroenterologists? Third you need to research celiac disease. Yes, you can be asymptomatic, but could still have instestinal damage as the small intestine is vast. here is a good place to start: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You might think you are a silent celiac, but ever been anemic? Had your bones checked?

That's good to know about Texas Children's, unfortunately I don't believe they accept our insurance. Our former pediatrician joined with one of their medical groups and we had to find a new one due to insurance. I'll check out their site though.
