Sluttishly Vegetarian: Pea and Onion Frittata

We are busy people. Sometimes it's just not feasible to conjure up an exotic, elaborate lunch every day of the week.

The great thing about a frittata is that it's quick, simple, easy ... and usually can be cobbled together from things you already have in your fridge. As you'll see from my photo, I was so low on supplies that I didn't even have any salad in - good job this little gem contains a few veggies, eh?


You'll need:
  • One large onion
  • Handful of peas (fresh or frozen)
  • Three fresh eggs at room temperature
  • Half a red pepper
  • Four or five mint leaves
  • Grated Parmesan cheese to taste (i.e. lots!) *if you're a strict veggie then there are alternative renet-free cheeses that are very similar to Parmesan
  • One clove of garlic
  • Pinch of paprika
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil for frying
  • Small frying pan
Make it:
  • Finely chop the garlic and roughly chop the onion. Fry in little oil until translucent and soft.
  • Chop the pepper into chunks and add to the frying pan.
  • Add the peas and stir.
  • Bruise the mint and add to the pan along with the paprika and blend loosely.
  • Beat the eggs well and season generously.
  • Add the eggs to the pan, pouring evenly to cover all the ingredients.
  • Sprinkle liberally with the cheese and pop under the grill for approximately 5-8 minutes or until really golden, bubbling and smelling gorgeous!

  1. Wow. I'd have probably gone out for dinner (after opening and closing the fridge door seventeen times) yet you whip up a meal out of nothing.
