Wild Garlic Frittata Recipe

Wild garlic frittata
  • Serves: 4
  • Preparation time: 30 minutes

Method

‘Late March to mid May, wild garlic is at its best. The flavour is like regular garlic and spring onion,’ says chef and mum-of-three Claire Thomson.

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. You’ll need an ovenproof non-stick frying pan that will fit in the oven.

2. Blanch the spinach in a pan of boiling water until just wilted. Drain, then squeeze out any excess water.

3. Crack the eggs into a bowl and add the wild garlic (or spring onions), spinach, Parmesan, soaked bread, salt and pepper, then combine.

4. Heat the ovenproof frying pan over a high heat then add the vegetable oil.

5. Add the egg mix to the pan and mix for 10 seconds with a wooden spoon, then let it settle. Allow the frittata to take on a nice colour underneath.

6. Place the pan in the oven and cook for 10–15 minutes, or until the egg is set and the frittata is ready.

7. Leave to cool in the pan for around 10 minutes, then turn out on to a plate. Best served warm.
