Green Vegetable Frittata

By Eva Humphries, Wholefood Warrior


12 eggs, lightly beaten
150g of asparagus, roughly chopped, woody ends discarded
Sliced florets from half a head of broccoli (150-170g)
150g of frozen peas
2 large handfuls of spinach (100g approximately)
125g of of feta
2tsp of rapeseed oil or a knob of organic butter
Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper
Grated zest of half a lemon

Makes Eight slices (1 slice with a side or 2 slices on their own are the ideal portion)

Preheat a grill to medium.

Heat the oil or butter in a frying pan over a medium heat, add the broccoli, asparagus and peas and cook for 5 minutes until the vegetables begin to soften. Season well with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper.

Stir in the spinach, season again and grate over the zest of half a lemon. Cook for another minute until the spinach wilts.

Pour in the eggs and give the mixture a stir to evenly distribute the vegetables. Cook on a medium heat until the edges are firm (the centre will still be liquid), approximately 10-15 minutes.

Crumble the feta over the top and transfer the pan to under the grill. Grill for 10 minutes until the egg mixture is firm and the feta turns light golden around the edges.

Remove from the pan and either eat immediately or slice it up, allow it to cool and refrigerate.

The frittata keeps well in a fridge for up to 3 days.
