1. Preheat your oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas 6. Chop the leftover veg into bite-sized chunks. Roughly chop your chosen herb(s). Crumble, chop or coarsely grate the cheese you're going to use up.
2. Beat the eggs with the crème fraîche in a large mixing bowl. Season well with salt and pepper. Fold in the veg, herbs and half the cheese.
3. Set a large, ovenproof frying pan on a high heat. Swirl in 2 tbsp olive oil. Pour in the frittata mix and shake the pan to distribute the veg evenly. Scatter over the remaining cheese. Cook for 3-5 mins till the edges are beginning to set.
4. Slide the pan into the oven. Bake for 20-25 mins till the middle is set. Take out of the oven and leave to cool in the pan for a couple of mins. Flip the frittata out onto a board and cut into wedges. Serve with a mixed salad and chutney.
