Total Time: 50 to 55 minutes

Servings: 4 to 6


  • 6 cups small broccoli florets
  • 9 eggs
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 4 teaspoons salt (or to taste)
  • 4 teaspoons ground pepper (or to taste)
  • 4 teaspoons cayenne pepper

Here's how to make it: 

  1. In a large microwave-safe dish, add broccoli with 2 to 3 tablespoons of water. Microwave on high for 3 to 4 minutes or until tender. Transfer broccoli to a colander to drain off any excess liquid.

  3. Arrange the broccoli on the bottom of a lightly greased 13x9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle the cheese over the broccoli, and then pour the egg mixture over top.
