Goat's Cheese & Red Onion Frittata

Serves 2

  • 1 large red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 red capsicum, diced
  • 100g goat's cheese, crumbled
  • 20g parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley

Beetroot & Rocket Side Salad

  • 2 medium cooked beetroots cut into matchsticks
  • 2 handfuls of rocket
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon chopped chives
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°c.
  2. Take a small frying pan (ideally with a metal handle so it can go in the oven) and gently fry the red onion and red capsicum until soft and beginning to colour, stirring every so often.
  3. Meanwhile crack the eggs into a jug and whisk, then add the goat's cheese, parmesan and parsley, season with salt and pepper and gently fold.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into the pan turning the heat down to its lowest and cook until the sides begin to set, pop into the oven for about 8-10 minutes until firm to the touch.
  5. In a mixing bowl add the beetroot, rocket, chives and drizzle over the olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
  6. Once the frittata is cooked leave to cool slightly then tip out of the pan, slice into four, divide between your plates and top with the beetroot salad.

Would it be suitable to replace the eggs with chia seeds? (1 tbs chia seeds + 3 tbs water = 1 egg) I don't eat eggs at all so I've stopped cooking frittatas.

Frittatas, quiches and other egg-based dishes have a reputation for poor quality when frozen; the albumen in the eggs develops a rubbery consistency when the moisture it contains freezes. However, you have the best prevention close at hand -- the yolk. Yolks contain lecithin, a natural emulsifier, which helps the fat stay dispersed throughout the whites and minimises the rubbery consistency common to frozen egg dishes.
Take the frittata from the oven and place it on a cooling rack. Let the dish cool to room temperature and place it in the refrigerator.
Chill the dish in the refrigerator until it firms, about 1 hour. Chilling the frittata or casserole makes it easier to remove and cut.
Cut the frittata in half and transfer each piece to a heavy-duty freezer bag. Mark the date on the bags and place them in the freezer; use within one month for best results.
