Asparagus, pea & feta frittata

Masterchef finalist Callum Hann, and accredited dietitian Themis Chryssidis share the recipe for a high fibre and folate frittata.

Serves: 4
Prep Time:  15 minutes
Cook Time:  30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 250 g baby potatoes, halved
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus ¼ cup extra
  • 2 bunches asparagus, cut into 5cm lengths
  • 1 cup podded peas (or frozen)
  • 4 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • ¼ cup reduced-fat milk
  • Pinch of salt and cracked black pepper
  • 100g feta, crumbled
  • 1 bunch of parsley, leaves picked
  • ¼ cup pine nuts, toasted
  • 40g parmesan
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 lemon, juiced

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180° (fan-forced).
  2. Bring a medium saucepan of water to the boil over high heat. Boil potatoes for 8-10 minutes or until soft when pierced with a knife.
  3. Meanwhile, heat one tablespoon oil in a medium frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook asparagus for 2-3 minutes or until starting to become golden and tender. Remove pan from heat and add peas, spring onions and potatoes.
  4. Whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Pour over vegetables in the frying pan, then scatter over feta. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden and cooked through.
  5. While the frittata is baking, make a parsley pesto. Combine parsley, pine nuts, parmesan and garlic in a small food processor. Blitz until smooth, then stir through ¼ cup oil. Taste and add lemon juice to your liking.
  6. To serve, turn frittata out onto a clean chopping board and cut into wedges. Serve with a drizzle of parsley pesto.

Cooking Tip: Pesto doesn’t have to be kept traditional. We’ve used parsley, but why not try not aromatic coriander or spicy rocket to find your favourite.

Nutrition Tip: Similar to other green vegetables, asparagus is a good source of fibre and folate
