  4. Add the basil and half of the sea salt. stir well. Remove skillet from heat.

  5. Crack the eggs into a blender and add the diced avocado along with the remaining ½ teaspoon of sea salt. Blend until smooth.

  6. Evenly pour the egg/avocado mixture over the vegetables in the skillet. Use a spoon or spatula to shift the vegetables around so that everything is evenly distributed, but avoid scrambling the eggs.

  7. Place the frittata on the middle shelf of the preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes, or until frittata tests clean when poked in the center.

  8. Allow frittata to cool at least 10 minutes. Cut wedges and serve with salad and home fries.
