  1. Heat the oil in a 25cm nonstick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5-6 mins until softened. Meanwhile, beat the eggs in a large bowl, then add the peas and tomatoes; season.
  2. Add the mixture to the frying pan and cook over a medium heat for 15 mins, then grill for 5 mins until set. Leave to cool, then loosen around the edges with a spatula and slide onto a board. Cut in half. Slice one half into 10 fingers.
  3. Divide between 2 lunch boxes, along with the carrot, pitta fingers and mangetout. Mix the soft cheese with chives; divide between 2 small, lidded containers and add to the lunch boxes for dipping. Chill until ready to eat.

Tip: You can store the other frittata half in the fridge in a sealed, airtight container, or, use it to make these Frittata wraps – the ideal adult lunch idea.
