Ingredients

  • 10 large eggs (free-range or organic)
  • 20 asparagus spears (free-range or organic)
  • 2 spring onions (free-range or organic)
  • 1 shallots (small
  • 1 red bell pepper (free-range or organic)
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream (free-range or organic)
  • 1 package soft goat cheese (free-range or organic)
  • 1 package pancetta (free-range or organic)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley (free-range or organic)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint (free-range or organic)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh tarragon (free-range or organic)
  • 2 tablespoons ghee (free-range or organic)
  • salt (to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cherry tomatoes (free-range or organic)

Instructions

  • First, preheat the oven to 200 °C/ 400 °F.
  • Prepare the asparagus by cutting the woody ends off (250 g of asparagus in our recipe counts after cutting the ends off).
  • Wash and deseed the bell pepper and slice it in small stripes.
  • Peel and finely chop the shallot and spring onion.
  • Grease a non-stick pan with a tablespoon of butter or ghee and add all the ingredients from the previous step.
  • Season with salt to taste.
  • Cook briefly for about 5 minutes just enough to release the fragrance and set aside.
  • In a bowl, whisk the eggs, cream and freshly chopped herbs.
  • If you don't have the herbs for this recipe, you can use any herbs you have (e.g.
  • chives, thyme, basil).
  • Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Place the cooked vegetables into a baking dish (I used a 25 cm / 10 inch baking dish).
  • Crumble the soft goat cheese equally all over the vegetables and pour the egg mixture over it.
  • Place it in the oven and cook for about 20 minutes just until the top becomes firm.
  • Carefully take the dish from the oven and reduce the temperature to about 175 °C/ 350 °F.
  • Lay the Pancetta (or bacon) all over the frittata and place back in the oven for an additional 15-20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the tomatoes.
  • Grease a pan with a tablespoon of ghee (or butter) and keep it on medium heat.
  • The best way to roast tomatoes is to leave them on the vine.
  • This will add extra flavour.
  • Roast shortly for about 5 minutes (don't overcook) and...
  • Enjoy!
