Pea and Asparagus Frittata

Served warm or cold, a frittata is quick, versatile and delicious. Make for a healthy midweek main or cool and slice in thick wedges for packed lunches or picnics. It’s a great way to use up any leftover vegetables or cheese. This recipe features Padron peppers for a subtle hint of heat.

Serves: 4

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 10 minutes


  • 125g asparagus tips
  • 75g frozen peas
  • 6 free range eggs
  • 100ml single cream
  • 25g parmesan cheese, grated finely
  • 25g butter
  • 4 Padron peppers, halved (or half a small green pepper, deseeded and chopped) optional
  • 125g soft goats cheese


  1. Preheat the grill or oven to 160C.
  2. Bring a small saucepan of salted water to boil. Add the asparagus and cook for 2 minutes. Add the peas and cook for further 2 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  3. Whisk the eggs and cream in a large bowl and stir in the grated parmesan.
  4. Heat the butter in a non-stick oven proof 20cm frying pan.
  5. Add the Padron peppers and fry for a couple of minutes. Add the asparagus and peas. Stir gently with a wooden spoon then pour in the eggs.
  6. Cook over a medium heat for approximately 5 minutes until beginning to set around the edges.
  7. Dot pieces of goats’ cheese evenly around the surface and place under a medium hot grill (160C) or oven until golden and just set.
  8. Serve warm with dressed salad leaves or cool and cut into wedges for packed lunches.


  • Use fresh eggs at room temperature for a light, puffy frittata.
