This afternoon was just the most lovely day. It has been either very cold, very wet or just plain dull lately so to see the sunshine was just a joy. I wasn’t in the mood to have a big heavy meal that would have me flopped out on the couch unable to enjoy the gorgeous evening. So I picked eggs and veggies… It sounded good until I realised I had no clue what so ever that I would do with them. Eventually, I grabbed the spinach, mozzarella and tomatoes out as well and I whipped this little beauty up. It was so delicious and had a lovely subtle Italian flavor.  It was the perfectly light supper that fit into my sunshiny evening to perfection! 🙂 I hope everyone else is having one too.

Tomato, Spinach and Mozzarella Frittata (Serves 2)

4 eggs

a dash of milk

salt and pepper

1tbsp rapeseed oil

6-8 cherry tomatoes, halved

1/2 small onion, diced

2 handfuls spinach, roughly chopped

2 heaping tsp sun dried tomato pesto

1/2tsp dried basil

1/2 125g ball mozzarella, cut into match sticks

a pinch of chilli flakes

  • Preheat the grill to high and in a small bowl, beat together the eggs and milk and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • In a small frying pan, heat the oil over a medium/high heat and add the tomatoes, onion and spinach and cook stirring occasionally until everything is slightly softened.
  • Add in the spoonfuls of pesto and basil and mix to combine with the cooked veggies.
  • Pour in the egg mixture and mix quickly with the veg to distribute the veg and flavors evenly. Cook for about 3-4mins until most of the frittata is cooked then transfer to the grill and cook for 2-3mins until the egg is set.
  • Scatter with mozzarella match sticks and sprinkle with chilli flakes and extra basil.
  • Return to the oven for about 5mins or until the mozzarella is melted and slightly golden.
  • Serve immediately with veggies and lentils.
