We absolutely love frittatas – they’re quick, easy and so versatile. Perfect for when you’re short on time but still want something delicious for lunch.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Small knob of unsalted butter
- 1 red onion, finely sliced
- 1 large courgette, coarsely grated
- 50g (1/2 cup) pitted Kalamata olives
- 200g (1 1/2 cups) cherry tomatoes
- 8 large eggs
- Handful of parsley leaves, chopped
- 150g (5 1/2 oz) feta, crumbled or chopped
- Sea salt and black pepper
- Pre-heat the grill to medium
- Heat the oil and butter in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat and fry the onion and courgette until lightly cooked
- Stir in the olives and tomatoes and fry gently until the tomatoes become gooey and the liuid has cooked off
- Beat the eggs and parsley really well and season with salt and pepper
- Pour into the pan, stirring to mix in the veg, and cook for 5 minutes until the frittata is set around the edges.
- Sprinkle over the feta and pop under the grill for 5 minutes, keeping an eye on it until the frittata is set through and lightly golden
- Serve in wedges
