We’re in lockdown in Sydney, and everyone is turning to cooking to brighten up these wintry days – and nights!
My friend and always inventive cook, John, has been putting out some pretty good dishes from his lockdown hideaway in the northern beaches.
This one is a beauty – a frittata using left over roast veggies as well as fresh veggies, goat’s cheese and eggs of course!
Here’s the recipe. The quantities can be varied – use a little more or less as the mood takes you!
Oh and it’s a one pan dish too! Saves on washing up!
1 tablespoon butter
2 rashers of bacon
3 Roma tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon of harissa
2 to 3 cups any left over roast veggies, such as potato, sweet potato, kumera, onions, carrots
A handful of broccoli florets (or broccolini)
1/3 cup milk
Salt and pepper
3 – 4 small pieces goat’s cheese, broken up (about a handful)
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
In an oven proof cast iron pan, fry bacon and tomato in the butter on a low heat, until cooked through.
Add harissa and the left over veggies and mix through.
Steam broccoli until just cooked through, then drain.
Whisk the eggs with the milk and salt and pepper, and add this mixture to the pan, keeping on moderate heat, until it just sets.
Place the broccoli and goat’s cheese on top of the frittata.
Transfer the pan to oven. Bake for 10 minutes until the top is set and the cheese is melted.
Serve with a green salad and enjoy!
