Easy Frittata Recipe
Short on time and extra cash? Frittatas make for a perfect meal at any time of the day. They're fast, filling and help you use up all those leftover veggies lying around in the fridge.
While you can use a wide variety of vegetables in your frittata, we've focused on some special in-season produce, like asparagus and parsley. Follow the easy frittata recipe below to fill your home with the delicious scent of spring veggies.
- 10 large eggs (choose organic, free-range eggs when possible)
- 1/3 cup milk (option to swap with your non-dairy preference)
- 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 ½ cups cubed sweet potato
- 1 cup sliced leek
- 1 cup trimmed and chopped asparagus
- 1/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
- 1/4 cup feta
- Salt and pepper, to taste
How to make a frittata
- Preheat oven to 190ºC
- Heat a large non-stick pan then add olive oil to coat the pan.
- Add the sweet potato and leek and season. Cook for 2-3 minutes, then place in a baking tray.
- Pop into your preheated oven for around 10 minutes, or until sweet potato is tender. Remove from oven.
- Crack all 10 eggs into a mixing bowl, then whisk together.
- Add milk, salt, and pepper to egg mixture, followed by asparagus and parsley.
- Pour mixture evenly into the sweet potato and leek tray, then add feta.
- Return to oven and bake until eggs are cooked (approx. 10 minutes).
- Once everything is cooked, remove from oven and enjoy!
Tip: best served fresh alongside a light green salad. If you have leftovers, these can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days.
