3/4 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil (divided)
1/2 Red Bell Pepper
1 cup Baby Spinach (chopped)
1/4 cup Cherry Tomatoes (halved)

1/4 cup Water

Preheat the oven to 400ºF (204ºC). Grease a baking dish with half of the oil.
Add the remaining oil to a pan over medium heat. Add the peppers and cook for about five minutes or until just tender and starting to brown. Add the spinach, tomatoes, and green onion. Continue to cook until the spinach wilts. Transfer the vegetables to the prepared baking dish and arrange them in an even layer.
Add the eggs, water, and salt to a bowl and whisk well. Pour the egg mixture into the baking dish.
Bake for 23 to 25 minutes or until the eggs have set and are firm to touch. Cut into squares and enjoy!
