How to cook a delicious vegetable frittata in about 30 minutes

This recipe for vegetable frittata is kind of like a quiche, but no pastry is needed!

In a pie dish spread around evenly:

  • 1 red onion – sliced thin
  • 1/2 leek – sliced thinly
  • 1 cup of grated daikon or turnip
  • Any other leftover vegetables from the fridge – I used some cooked potato
  • 2 slices of smoked salmon (100gms) cut into smaller pieces
  • Capers – 1/4 cup or to taste
  • Shaved or grated parmesan – 1/4 cup or as you like

Mix in a bowl:

  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk – any type not sweet
  • 1/2 cup of flour – any type
  • 2 tsp paprika
Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables in the pie dish. On the top, place sliced tomatoes and another light sprinkling of parmesan cheese.
Bake in the oven on fan bake at 195C for about 25 mins – you will see a crust forming around the sides and the top will be golden.
Cut and serve with lettuce or whatever green salad takes your fancy.
Instead of salmon, you could use leftover chicken or any meat you like, such as salami or even bacon.
Or if you prefer a meatless frittata, you could use some tofu or tempeh for a vegetarian dish.
And gherkins or pickles to suit.
