Packed with veggies, this frittata makes a well-rounded meal for breakfast, lunch, or supper. Leeks contain the stress-reducing bioflavonoid quercetin, while oregano is deliciously antimicrobial and artichokes gently sustain liver function.

1 tsp             extra-virgin olive oil
12                 eggs
2 tsp             dairy-free pesto
1 tsp             dried thyme
1 tsp             dried oregano (or 2 tsp fresh)
1⁄2 tsp          pink rock salt or grey sea salt
2 cups          leeks, trimmed and finely chopped (include greens)
14-oz can   artichoke hearts (packed in water), drained
1 cup           green beans, ends trimmed, cut into thirds
10                black olives, pitted and sliced

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 10 x 14–inch casserole dish with olive oil and set aside.
2. Whisk eggs with pesto, thyme, oregano, and salt and pour into oiled casserole dish.
3. Sprinkle leeks, artichoke hearts, beans, and olives onto the egg mixture.
4. Bake for 30 minutes or until eggs are set. Serve hot.
