Method

  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a saucepan over a medium heat. Fry the onion and pepper for 10 mins until soft and lightly golden. Add the tomatoes, sugar and 100ml water, season, then simmer for 10-15 mins until thickened and saucy, and the peppers are very tender. Boil the broccoli in a pan of boiling water for 6-8 mins until tender, then drain.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the grill to high. Heat the remaining oil in an ovenproof frying pan (about 25cm-wide) over a medium heat. Add the peas and spring onions, and cook for 2-3 mins until piping hot. Whisk the eggs with the coriander and a little black pepper in a jug. Pour over the peas and spring onions in the pan and cook for 2-3 mins, without stirring, until the edges have set.
  3. Scatter the torn mozzarella over the frittata, then transfer to the grill. Grill for 3-5 mins until the frittata is well risen and pufed up, and has set with just a slight wobble in the centre. Serve in wedges with the pepper relish and the broccoli.
