Servings 4

Equipment

  • medium size non-stick flat saucepan This should also be oven proof
  • Medium size mixing bowl
  • Whisk or fork
  • Spatula

Ingredients
  

  • Fresh grated parmesan A handful
  • 4 pcs Cherry tomatoes each one sliced into four
  • 2 cubes Chopped frozen spinach Cooked and strained (or 100g baby spinach)
  • 6 Fresh eggs
  • 2 pinches Dried mixed herbs
  • 5 Basil leaves chopped
  • Extra virgin olive oil EVOO
  • 50 - 75 mL Cooking cream or full cream milk

Instructions
 

  • Pour around four table spoons of olive oil into your non-stick saucepan and make sure it covers the base of the pan.
  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
  • Place the saucepan onto the stove at a medium-high temperature.
  • Crack open each of the six eggs into the mixing bowl and throw out the shells.
  • Before you start beating the eggs, add two pinches of table salt to them. Then, mix them or beat them with a whisk, whichever is easier for you.
  • Now, add the spinach and cherry tomatoes.
  • Next, add the basil, grated parmesan and mixed herbs.
  • Beat well once again with a fork and then add the finishing touch, the cream (or milk if you prefer).
  • Now, mix! Mix! Mix!
  • Once the pan is nice and hot, carefully remove the pan from the stove and slowly swirl the oil around the edges of the pan so that it lightly greases at least half of the inside rim.
  • Then, get rid of the excess oil (don’t tip it down the sink! I like to put mine in an empty used jar and then I throw it out once it’s full) and place the saucepan back onto the stove.
  • Next, get your mixture and pour it into the pan, using a spoon to help you get it all out.
  • Using the same spoon, quickly spread out the cherry tomatoes so that they are even and make sure the mixture is level all around.
  • Keep the temperature at a medium-high heat and let this cook for around 3-4 minutes.
  • After this time, get a spatula and lightly touch the edges of the frittata to move it and also check that it has started to cook. Repeat this process while it begins to cook through.
  • After 6 minutes, the edges will be well cooked but still runny in the middle.
  • Being careful not to burn yourself, remove the saucepan from the stove and place it in the oven.
  • Different ovens work differently so it is hard to say how long you should leave it inside! What I will say, is that you will see it begin to rise and cook through the middle and once the top is not runny anymore, your frittata will be almost ready.
  • Remove this from the oven and place the saucepan on a bench. Place a flat plate inside the saucepan which should fit perfectly.
  • Then, lift up your pan with one hand, place your other hand on top of the plate and flip the pan so that the fresh frittata lands perfectly on the plate.
  • Slide your vegetable frittata back into the pan, with the opposite side now facing up.
  • Place this back on to the stove for no more than 3 minutes to cook the other side at a medium heat.
  • After 3 minutes, the top should have started to brown.
  • You then need to place it back into the oven for just under 5 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the oven, place a plate inside it and once again flip it over so that the top is perfectly browned and can help your presentation!
  • E ora si mangia, Vincenzo’s Plate….Enjoy!
