Spring vegetable frittata


  • 300g (11 oz) new potatoes
  • 100g (3½ oz) fresh peas, podded or frozen
  • 100g (3½ oz) broad beans, podded and shelled or frozen
  • 6 large free range eggs
  • 3 tbsp mint, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 20g (¾ oz) unsalted butter
  • 4 salad onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 baby courgettes, sliced in half lengthways
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 100g (3½ oz) feta, crumbled
  • Coarsely ground black pepper


  • Cook the new potatoes in a pan of water for 12-15 minutes, until tender. Drain and, when cool, slice thinly.
  •  Cook the peas and broad beans in boiling water for 2 minutes (or 4-5 if from frozen) then drain and refresh under cold water.
  • Whisk the eggs in a medium bowl with the mint, salt and pepper.
  • Heat the oil in a 24cm non-stick frying pan.  Add the courgettes cook for 1-2 minutes then add the potatoes, onions and garlic, cook for 3-4 minutes, until beginning brown. Stir in the peas and broad beans, keeping 10g of each for the salad.
  • Preheat the grill. Pour the whisked egg over the vegetables and crumble over the feta, keeping 20g of feta for the salad. Cook over a gentle heat for 10-12 minutes until almost set. Transfer the pan to the grill and cook for 3-5 mins until the top is golden and cooked through.
  • Place a plate or board over the top of the pan so that the frittata falls onto the plate. Slice into wedges and serve with the salad.
