Frittatas are a lovely Italian dish, made with eggs they are a little bit like a cross between an omelette and a quiche without the crust! They’re great and versatile because you can more or less use any of your favourite ingredients ithem, they’re very filling, and pretty healthy too. Mmmm.
Frittatas are delicious eaten hot for breakfast, lunch or dinner but are also really good cold, cut it into wedges for picnics or lunchboxes.
I made this tasty garlic, rosemary, mushroom and red pepper frittata with Blue Diamond Almonds unsweetened almond milk so it is also a dairy free (and obviously gluten free) dish to suit the whole family.
I used roasted red peppers from a jar but feel free to use fresh ones, cook for a couple of minutes longer and adjust the seasoning accordingly, and whilst using fresh herbs is preferable this is definitely a store cupboard recipe so don’t panic if you’ve only got dried rosemary at hand.
