Recipe: Spring Vegetable Frittata

I got a delivery of eggs from my mum recently and decided to turn them into a delicious spring vegetable frittata! It made for an excellent work lunch, packed with veggies and protein, and super simple to make. It just requires a bit of cooking time, but that makes it perfect for a Sunday cook in my world!

I love that the actual hands on time for this spring vegetable frittata is very little, so it’s a great one when you have lots of dishes on the go. You can of course mix up the vegetables to add whatever you have on hand – so good for those meals when you haven’t quite made it to the shops again yet!
