Sweet potato frittata

Easy to make, rich in protein and a perfect thing to have in the fridge for a spontaneous hungry nibble or an easy, ‘I’m too tired to cook’ moment.
  • Prep time:
    15 minutes
  • Cooking time:
    45 minutes
  • Serves:
    4

Method

  1. Grease a 20cm round cake tin and, if it is non-stick, line the base with greaseproof paper.
  2. Boil the sweet potatoes in the vegetable stock for 10 minutes until soft, then drain and roughly mash with a fork.
  3. In a non-stick frying pan heat the butter and oil. 
  4. Add the garlic, onion and peppers. 
  5. When the onions are soft, add the mashed sweet potatoes and rocket. 
  6. Remove from the heat.
  7. Whisk together the eggs and milk, then add the potato mixture and pour into the cake tin. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes, then take it out and gently but firmly pat down the mixture to help make it solid. 
  8. Put it back in the oven for another 15 minutes. It may well rise in the centre from time to time, but don’t worry – it will sink down when it cools.
  9. Cut into wedges to serve. 

Tip

It’s delicious hot or cold and is a great addition to lunchboxes!
