Red Onion, Courgette and Goats Cheese Frittata

This is great as a nice, light meal that will fill you up but not leave you feeling all sluggish. It’s great served with a big green salad.

You’ll need:

  • Six eggs
  • Two large red onions
  • Two courgettes
  • Goats cheese
  • Handful of grated cheddar (optional)
  • Pepper

Grate the courgettes into fine strands and then squeeze as much of the water in them out as possible. While you’re getting everything else ready rest on kitchen roll to really try and dry them out.

Slice your onions and sweat them in a frying pan on a medium heat. You don’t want them to brown but you want them to soften.

Whisk the eggs, mix in the courgettes and the onions, add a good pinch of pepper and the cheddar if you’re using it. You could also add half a finely diced red chilli or a teaspoon of dried chilli flakes if you fancy a bit of heat.

Get the frying pan hot and pour in your egg mix. Tear the goats cheese over the top and let the frittata cook on top of the stove for a while.

Once the bottom has set pop the pan under the grill to set the top. Once everything is cooked put a serving dish or a plate over the top of the pan, flip over and it should slide out.

If you’re not scared of carbs you can add slices of (cooked) new potatoes to the mix to make it a bit more stodgy.

    Can I use caramelized onions instead of raw onions? Plz suggest…

      Absolutely, that’d probably be even better! I tend to cook the onions down quite a lot so they’re not hugely sharp.

        Hey Sarah, thanks :)
        Yeah, the recipe will be a bit on the sweeter side, which I think is the specialty of caramelized onions.

    Scrumptious. I also chucked in a fat handful of chives from the garden which, finely chopped, worked well. I left out the tats.

What?!
