What's For Dinner? Red pepper and feta frittata recipe

Pepper and spinach Frittata
Pepper and spinach Frittata

This red pepper, feta and dill frittata is perfect if you're looking for a quick and easy meal for after work.

The sweetness of the peppers with fragrant dill and salty feta is a combination which really brings out each of the ingredients. Served warm in the evening with a gutsy salad or cold in your lunch box the next day, it’s my favourite way to turn eggs into a feast.

Serves 4, or 2 with leftovers for lunch

2 large red peppers

50g fresh spinach

Handful fresh dill

100g feta cheese

8 large eggs

Olive oil

Salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 200C.

Deseed and roughly chop the peppers into 2cm square pieces. Place them in a roasting tin with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss together to coat in the oil and roast for 15-20 minutes until tender and soft but not burnt or blackened.

While the peppers are cooking, shred the spinach into rough ribbons. Pick the leaves from the dill, discarding the stalks, and finely chop. In a bowl, beat the eggs well with a fork and season them with plenty of salt and pepper.

Lightly oil or butter a 30cm baking or roasting tin that is at least an inch deep. When the peppers are cooked turn them out into the tin. Scatter the spinach over the top and then pour on the eggs. Crumble over the feta and lastly the dill, giving it a gentle stir to evenly distribute everything.

Turn the oven down to 180C and bake for 25 minutes until the eggs have set and the whole frittata is firm and golden round the edges.

Allow to cool slightly and serve with green salad and roast new potatoes for something a little more substantial.
