Roast Vegetable Frittata

Is there anything more homely in winter than roast vegetables? I had one lone capsicum left over after my Ratatouille, as well as a bit of pumpkin from my Roast Pumpkin Ravioli and so I decided to make the most of it and make a quick frittata one Sunday lunch.

A frittata is really like an omelette, or a quiche without the crust. I used a variety of different veges from what was left over in the fridge but feel free to substitute and swap as you like.

You will need:

  • 150g butternut pumpkin, chopped into 1cm cubes;
  • 5 button mushrooms, sliced;
  • 1 capsicum, diced;
  • 1 zucchini, thinly sliced;
  • 2 springs of fresh thyme;
  • Olive oil;
  • 1/4 brown onion, diced finely;
  • 1 clove garlic;
  • 4 eggs;
  • 50ml thickened cream;
  • Handful of fresh basil leaves, shredded;
  • 2 tablespoons of shaved Parmesan cheese;
  • Green salad, to serve.

Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celcius. Line a baking tray with foil and throw in all of your vegetables. Drizzle with olive oil, scatter over the thyme and roast for about 30 minutes or so in the oven until everything is soft. Keep the oven on.

    What a lovely sunday lunch this would have been. Love the abundance of veggies – it’s great you can put in whatever you have sitting in the fridge. A good way to use left overs.
