Let every bit of veg left on your plate after a meal be the beginning of the next meal! There is no reason for uneaten vegetables to land in the bin with this fantastic Happy Scraps Frittata. Save waste, save money, eat more veg.

Method:

Heat the olive oil in an oven-proof frying pan + add the cubes of leftover roasted veggies. Turn on the grill to medium.

Add half the grated cheese to the beaten egg and carefully pour into the pan of vegetables. Turn down the heat to low.

After 5 minutes sprinkle the remaining cheese on the top of the pan.

Pop the pan under the grill for a further 5 minutes. Keep and eye on it to stop the topping from burning.

When it is cooked through (solid, not wobbly), remove from the grill. When the pan is cool, tip the frittata onto a plate and cut into wedges.

Kids in the kitchen:

Get kids cutting soft veg like mushrooms. Let them help you with choosing which veg to use up. They can also crack and beat the eggs with a little help, and add the cheese to them!
