1. Preheat your oven grill to high.
2. Sauté the onion/leek and garlic in a bit of oil till softened. Add your seasonal veggies and cook to soften. Cool.
3. Whisk the eggs. Fold the veggies through. Season well, adding chilli and/or herbs, if you like.
4. Tip the eggy/veggie mix into a frying pan brushed with olive oil. Scatter on the cheese. Pop it in the oven. Cook till golden on top, about 15 mins.
5. *Super fritatta fillers:
6. Spring greens with crumbled goat’s cheese, finely chopped red chilli and a pinch of finely chopped rosemary. Finely chop the greens, sizzle with onions and garlic, once you've softened them up.
7. Purple sprouting broccoli with creamy blue cheese like Gorgonzola Dolce and a scattering of spring herbs like tarragon, mint or sorrel. Snip the broccoli, stalks and leaves into bite-sized pieces and sizzle with the onions and garlic.
8. Mushrooms; slice and sizzle with the onions and garlic until golden. Add a glug of balsamic and sizzle till it’s absorbed. Delicious with our Taleggio and Scarborough Fayre herbs (parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme).
9. Courgettes coarsely grated or sliced into rounds and softened with the onions and garlic. Dust with lemon zest and pair with grated cheddar, or try with shavings of a nutty cheese like Wyfe of Bath.
