WONDERFUL SPRING RECIPES
AND PEA FRITTATA
Serves: 2-4 | Prep time: 5 minutes | Cooking time: 15 minutes
Unlike other frittata recipes, this salmon, asparagus and pea frittata is cooked entirely in
the oven, which means there’s no standing over the stove wondering if it’s burning on the
bottom! Just pop it in the oven and forget about it for 15 minutes, then wonder at the
golden brown, puffed up beauty before you!
2 tbsp natural yoghurt
50g smoked salmon,
4 asparagus spears, sliced
into 2cm pieces
/ 3 cup frozen peas
1 Preheat oven to 180°C.
2 Place eggs and yoghurt in a bowl, then beat until well combined using a fork or whisk.
3 Add asparagus, smoked salmon and peas to egg mixture and stir through.
4 Spray a medium-sized baking dish or oven-proof frying pan with oil and pour in the mixture.
5 Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown and just cooked through.
6 Serve with salad, or crusty wholemeal or sourdough bread.
Serves: 4 | Cooking time: 15-20 minutes
