Fridge Clearing Frittata Recipe
Preheat your oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C
Lightly grease a 20cm/8″ sandwich tin and set to one side.
Heat a non stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add in the oil, when hot – add the onions and gently fry until softened.
Add the peppers & garlic to the pan and fry for a few minutes until the peppers just start to soften.
Then add in the tomatoes, tomato puree, honey mustard and season well with salt & pepper. Fry for a minute or 2 then remove from the heat and tip into the prepared sandwich tin.
In a jug, beat the eggs together with HALF the parmesan, all the chives and a generous helping of salt & pepper. Pour the mixture over the vegetables and mix a little with a fork.
Sprinkle with the remaining parmesan and pop your Frittata into the centre of the preheated oven for about 15 minutes or until cooked through & golden brown on top. Serve with a side salad.
There you have it folks. A super quick Frittata that’s dispensed of all those leftover ingredients you didn’t know what to do with. Not to mention the fact that it’s healthy delicious AND cheap! What more could you want from a meal?
