The recipe calls for fresh dill, but if you don’t have access to fresh herbs don’t let it dissuade you. This will still be delicious with some combination of dried herbs such as dill, basil, oregano or Italian seasoning instead.
To make keep this frittata low in fat and high in protein, it calls for liquid egg whites such as Egg Beaters. Feel free to use whatever combination of egg whites and/or whole eggs that makes you happy.
