Note: + 5 mins cooling time



  • 2 medium gold sweet potatoes, peeled, thinly sliced crossways
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 medium leek, pale section only, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 15 raw prawns, peeled, deveined, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup (60g) frozen peas, just thawed
  • 8 Coles Australian Free Range Eggs
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) milk
  • 2 tbs chopped dill
  • 2 tbs chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tbs pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • 150g mixed salad leaves
  • 250g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) balsamic vinegar



Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a deep 24cm (base measurement) baking dish and line with baking paper. Place sweet potato in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave on high for 5 mins or until just tender. 


Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the leek and garlic and cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until leek is tender. 


Arrange one-third of the sweet potato in the dish. Top with half the leek mixture, one-third of the prawn and one-third of the peas. Continue layering with the remaining sweet potato, leek mixture, prawn and peas, finishing with prawns.


Whisk eggs, milk, dill and parsley in a jug until well combined. Season with pepper. Pour egg mixture over sweet potato mixture. Sprinkle with half the pepitas and sunflower seeds. Bake for 40-45 mins or until the egg is set. Set aside for 5 mins to cool slightly.


Combine the salad leaves, tomato, onion, cucumber and the remaining pepitas and sunflower seeds in a bowl. Drizzle with vinegar. Toss to combine.


Cut the frittata into pieces and serve with the salad.

Boost it: Add extra greens to the frittata, such as chopped asparagus or sliced zucchini.
