Spring vegetable frittata
This veggie-packed frittata is a must-try meal. It’s simple to prep and full of flavour.
- 300g potatoes, peeled, cut into 2cm pieces
- 100g frozen peas
- 100g frozen broad beans, thawed, peeled
- 2 bunches asparagus, woody ends trimmed, chopped
- 8 eggs
- 1/3 cup coarsely chopped mint
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 4 spring onions, thinly sliced
- 100g reduced-fat fetta, crumbled
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
- 4 thick slices multigrain bread
- Mint sprigs, to serve
Cook the potato in a medium saucepan of boiling water for 10-12 mins or until tender. Drain well.
Meanwhile, cook the peas, broad beans and asparagus in a separate saucepan of boiling water for 2-4 mins or until bright green. Drain and refresh under cold water. Whisk the eggs in a large bowl. Stir in the chopped mint.
Heat the oil in a 26cm (base measurement) non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add the potato and asparagus mixture. Cook for 5 mins or until golden. Stir in the spring onion.
Preheat the grill on medium. Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables in the pan and sprinkle with the fetta and pepper. Reduce heat to low. Cook, without stirring, for 10-12 mins or until mixture is almost set. Transfer the pan to the grill and cook for 3-5 mins or until the top is golden and mixture is set.
Cut the frittata into wedges and serve with bread. Sprinkle with mint sprigs to serve.
