Broad Bean and Feta Frittata

Broad Bean and Feta Frittata
Summer always makes you want to picnic if the weather is good. This frittata is delicious cold. Broad beans and feta gives this simple, filling meal plenty of flavour.

Preparation time: less than 30 mins

Cooking time: 10 to 30 mins

Serves 2 - 4


200g/7oz small broad beans, pods removed (podded weight) (use frozen beans if fresh aren\'t available)

2 tbsp olive oil

1 small red onion, peeled, chopped

salt and freshly ground black pepper

6 large free-range eggs

100g/3½oz feta cheese, crumbled

small bunch fresh mint leaves


Cook the broad beans in a pan of boiling, salted water for 2-3 minutes, or until tender. Drain well, then refresh in cold water.

Heat the oil in an ovenproof frying pan over a low heat. Add the onion and season with a pinch of salt. Fry for 8-10 minutes, or until softened but not browned.

Meanwhile, preheat the grill to its highest setting. In a bowl, whisk the eggs until well combined and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

When the onions have softened, increase the heat to medium and pour in the beaten eggs. Sprinkle over the crumbled feta, mint leaves and cooked broad beans. Leave the pan on the heat for 2-3 minutes (NB: Do not stir the mixture).

Place the pan under grill and cook for a further 2-3 minutes, or until the top side of the egg mixture is firm and pale golden-brown. Place a large plate upside-down over the pan, then turn the pan over so that the omelette falls onto the plate. Cut it into wedges and serve with crusty white bread.
