Today’s lunchtime inspiration – frittata extraordinaire! Basically, a very thick omelette full of potatoes and veg, that’s served in big wedges like a cake! A meal fit for 3 hungry children and a busy Mummy, plus excellent for using up our delicious homegrown veg and freshly laid eggs.


IMG_0233An excellent meal for using up delicious homegrown veg and freshly laid eggs.


  • 1 tbsp coconut or olive oil
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 675g potatoes (also delicious with sweet potatoes), cut into small chunks
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 115g broccoli, cut into small florets
  • 115g peas
  • 4-6 eggs (depends on size), beaten
  • 150ml milk
  • 1/2 cup parsley
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the onion and potatoes on a high heat for around 5 minutes.
  2. Lower the heat, cover the pan and cook for around 10 minutes or until the potatoes have softened.
  3. Add the veg (you can use any combination of veg that you have to hand), stir and then level out flat in the pan.
  4. Combine the milk, eggs and seasoning and pour over the veg, making sure you have enough to just cover the mixture.
  5. Scatter with chopped parsley and cook for 10-15 minutes on a low heat.
  6. Heat the grill and then place the frittata under the grill to set the top. This can take another 5 minutes or so.

Notes: Best served cut into wedges with a big salad, either hot or cold is absolutely delicious. Enjoy!

      Hope the Detox is going really well Stella. Well done you! I’m on day 4 of the detox, so posting recipes for fritatta and energy balls is pretty challenging! I’m off to make a big green juice now, so all will be well. Feeling fantastic. xx
