Spinach, Sweet Potato and Cherry Tomato Frittata

Serves 1-2


For the frittata

2 tbsp olive oil
½ onion, finely chopped
2 handfuls baby spinach leaves
8 whole cherry tomatoes, halved
½ medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into chunks (65g)
3 medium free-range eggs, beaten
salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 handful fresh parsley
1 handful fresh basil
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 tbsp olive oil
½ lemon, zest only
3 canned anchovies, drained and chopped

Preparation method

1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
2. For the frittata, heat the olive oil in an ovenproof frying pan and gently fry the onion for 2-3 minutes, or until softened. Add the spinach, cherry tomatoes and sweet potato and continue to fry for a further 3-4 minutes or until the sweet potato is just becoming tender.
3. Pour in the eggs, season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until the egg starts to set around the edges. Transfer to the oven for 2-3 minutes, or until the egg is just set. Remove from the oven, slide onto a serving plate and cut into wedges. Keep warm.
