A tasty, cheesy frittata is the ideal recipe to pack up for a picnic or take outside for an al fresco lunch. This quick and easy veggie version is packed with fresh green broccoli, tangy Cheddar and the tenderest garden peas – our peas are frozen within hours of being picked and tested with a tenderometer (trust us!) to make sure they’re as sweet as they can be.

  1. Heat the oil in a 22cm-wide frying pan over a medium-high heat and stir-fry the broccoli for 5 mins, then add the garlic and peas and cook for a further 2 mins.
  2. Preheat the grill to high. Whisk the eggs in a large jug, then add the cheese and whisk again. Season, then pour into the pan over the vegetables. Stir until well combined.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, without stirring, for 5 mins until the frittata starts to brown on the bottom. Put the pan under the grill and cook for 3-5 mins, until cooked through.
  4. In a small bowl, mix the crème fraîche with the paprika. Slice the frittata into wedges and serve with the crème fraîche and salad leaves.

Little help

To take to a picnic, cool completely, slice into wedges and wrap up in baking paper.
