Frittata is a fantastic italian recipe where you can use endless combinations of ingredients, I often make it just to “clean” the leftovers vegetables or meat I have in the refrigerator. Just open it and look at what you have and test, then you can have a different frittata every time, perfect that variation. The important that you use good quality ingredients and of course if possible organic.
My ingredients for this frittata (enough for 2 adults and 1 child):
- 1 leak
- Some champignons
- Few spring onions
- 3 to 4 garlic cloves
- 100 gr. green peas
- 1 chopped chili pepper
- Few cherry tomatoes cut in half
- 6 eggs
- 75 gr. grated parmesan
- Quite a lot fresh basil, chopped
- Fresh rosemary, chopped
- 1 tbs. dried sage, of course you could use fresh if you have.
You could start with the eggs, in a bowl beat the eggs, then add the parmesan and the herbs, mixing all very well, season with a bit of salt and pepper.
In a pan that also can go into the oven, bake in olive oil the leak, add the sweet red pepper, champignons and garlic, bake then a few minutes. Add the spring onions and green peas, then bake for another couple of minutes.
Pour the eggs mix into the pan, scoop all well, cook for about 3 minutes and then put the half tomatoes in the frittata, like in the picture below.
After that in a 150 degrees preheated oven, bake about 20 minutes, until the egg is ready. Serve with a nice salad and of course ciabatta bread.
You can make your own combinations, to give more taste you could have some salami or Serrano ham, also pancetta or bacon is perfect, spinaches, anything can go. About herbs, you can use thyme as well or dragon. That is what is so great about frittata you can give your own touch and every time will taste different but still so good! Enjoy cleaning up your refrigerator 😉
