Hi, Everyone! I’m sharing a very quick and easy lunch or brunch recipe with you this morning – an Asparagus and Cherry Tomato Frittata. Frittatas are the perfect go to dish for when you don’t have hours to spend in the kitchen (this is definitely a 30 minute meal!) and you only have a couple of ingredients on hand, but you still want a delicious, satisfying meal. And the great thing is that you can customize it as much as you like and use whatever vegetables and cheeses you have (you could also add meat – bacon, pancetta or any kind of breakfast sausage would work well!) Super quick, easy and tasty!
ASPARAGUS AND CHERRY TOMATO FRITTATA
*One large portion or two small portions*
YOU WILL NEED
2 large eggs
1 tbs grated Parmesan cheese
1 tbs half-and-half (or milk)
2 – 3 asparagus spears, cut into 1 inch chunks diagonally
Cherry tomatoes (whole)
Salt and pepper to season
Fresh herbs of your choice (I used flat leaf parsley)
Butter/cooking spray to grease baking dish
1. Preheat your oven to 350 deg F and grease your baking dish (this recipe makes one large portion or two small ones and I used a small, 7 inch oval baking dish. You could also bake these in muffin cups for individual little portions!).
2. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, half-and-half and grated Parmesan cheese, then season with salt and pepper. Add in your herbs, asparagus and tomatoes and stir. Pour the mixture into your baking dish (spread out the asparagus and tomatoes evenly) and bake for about 20 minutes, or until the frittata has puffed up and shrunk away from the edges of the baking dish. Serve warm.
Have a great day, Everyone!
