Sounds like a fantastic recipe! I'm definitely going to try it, but may have to use regular broccoli. I've never seen tenderstem broccoli here. I love that it has the chickpeas, that's one thing I've never tried in a frittata, but I love them. Have a great week! :)

It looks impressive on the plate! It probably is delicious too. However, I've stopped buying broccoli,and I don"t think it's the same with only cheek peas.

Nice recipe. Substituting asparagus for the broccli (allergy).

How delicious, if you have not tried the grilled broccoli, do not stop doing it and if it is also from your garden it is pure delight.
