Bacon and veg frittata

Serves 4

Ready in about 30 minutes


1 cup baby spinach

1 cup green beans, trimmed and sliced

1 cup Brussel sprots, shredded

6 large eggs

1 large pinch of dried red chili flakes

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Low-calorie cooking spray

4 pieces of Canadian bacon, all visible fat removed, roughly chopped

1 cup roasted red peppers in brine from a jar, drained and cut into strips

1 ¾ ounces feta cheese, crumbled

Large handful of arugula, to serve


Put the spinach in a colander and pour freshly boiled water over. Rinse under cold running water and gently squeeze dry using your hands, then set aside.

Boil the beans and Brussel sprouts for about 2 minutes. Crack the eggs into a bowl, add the chili flakes, season and whisk well.

Preheat your grill to medium-high. Place a 9-inch frying pan sprayed with low-calorie cooking spray over a medium heat and cook the bacon until it browns. Scatter in the spinach, beans and sprouts, then pour the egg mixture in, swirling the pan so it spreads evenly. Arrange the peppers and feta on top.

Cook for 8-10 minutes, or until set, then place under the grill for another 3-4 minutes. Check the frittata is cooked by inserting a knife in the middle – if there is still some runny egg, grill for a couple more minutes and test again. Serve sliced into wedges, with the arugula.
