Recipe Ingredients Image
  • A bag of salad potatoes
  • A bundle of asparagus
  • 1 spring onion
  • A handful of sorrel
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 large handfuls of baby leaf spinach
  • A bunch of radishes
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
From your kitchen
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
You'll need
  • Pan with a lid
  • Bowl
  • Oven-proof non-stick frying pan or baking dish
  • Skewer
Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Fill a kettle and boil it. Heat your oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C/Gas 4. Chop the potatoes so they are all equal sizes. Snap the woody ends off the asparagus stalks. Cut the asparagus stalks into thirds.

  • 2.

    Half fill a pan with hot water from the kettle. Add the potatoes. Cook for 10-12 mins till the potatoes are tender. When the potatoes are cooked, add the asparagus to the pan and cook for another min. Drain and rinse under cold water.

  • 3.

    Slice the potatoes so they're ½ cm thick. Trim and slice the spring onions. Finely slice the sorrel.

  • 4.

    Break the eggs into a large bowl. Season with a little salt and pepper. Beat well. Add the spring onions, sorrel, potatoes and asparagus. Mix well.

  • 5.

    Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in an ovenproof frying pan. Pour in the frittata mix. Cook over a low heat for 5-7 mins till the edges look cooked and crisp.

  • 6.

    Transfer the frittata to the oven for 20-25 mins till golden and puffy. Pop a skewer in to the centre - if it comes out clean, it's ready.

  • 7.

    Pop the spinach into a bowl. Finely slice the radishes and their leaves. Add to the spinach. Mix 1 tbsp of the vinegar with 1 tbsp olive oil. Season. Add the dressing to the bowl. Mix. Serve with wedges of frittata.

  • Tip

    Pan not an oven fan?
    If you don’t have an oven proof frying pan, pour the mix into a small baking dish after step 4. Cook in the oven for 30 mins until cooked through. Timings will depend on the diameter and depth of your pan/dish.
