Italian Vegetarian Cherry Tomato Spinach And Feta Frittata Recipe

Perfect breakfast or brunch food, frittatas are the Italian cousins of Spanish Tortillas. Basically an omelette filled with various ingredients, barely cooked on the hob, then put in the oven to set through. Frittatas are great hot or cold, for breakfast, brunch, lunch, snack or dinner, served with a fresh salad and a slice of sourdough bread. As a general guideline, stir fry some onions, add chopped vegetables, herbs, cheese. Add beaten eggs. Transfer to the oven to finish cooking. Variations are endless. This one combines red onion, chopped red chilli, cherry tomatoes, spinach and feta cheese.

Method

  • Heat oven to 180 degrees.
  • Beat the eggs with some black pepper and the red chilli, if using. Set aside.
  • Heat the butter and olive oil in a frying pan (ideally ovenproof). Add the onions and cook them over medium heat until soft. Add the roughly chopped spinach and cook until the spinach is wilted. Cook for an extra couple of minutes to allow the excess liquid to evaporate. Add the cherry tomatoes and the feta.
  • If using a ovenproof frying pan, pour in the beaten eggs and cook for about 3 minutes or until the bottom of the frittata has set. Transfer the frying pan to a hot oven and bake for about 15 minutes, or until the top of the frittata has set.
  • If you don't have a ovenproof frying pan, transfer the onion, cherry tomatoes, spinach and feta to a ovenproof dish. Pour in the beaten eggs and bake for about 20 minutes or until the frittata has set perfectly.
  • Alternatively, you can also make individual muffin-sized frittatas : distribute the vegetable and feta mixture in a muffin tray, add the beaten egg and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the size of the muffin holes. Great party food !

Phyllis BrownFrittata is quick and easy to make. I made this recipe at the weekend and really enjoyed the classic combination of spinach and feta with the surprise kick of chilli. It made 6 generous portions so there was enough over for Monday's lunchbox. I am going to make individual muffin sized frittatas next time. Great idea!
