Roasted Vegetable Frittata Recipe

We used pumpkin, potato, sweet potato, onion, mushrooms and peas in this frittata. However, any combination of roasted vegetables could be used. If you are using leftover, cooked vegetables, you will need about two cups of diced vegetables.

If you are using a frypan with an ovenproof handle, you can cook the top of the frittata under a grill (rather than flipping it over in the pan).

The frittata can be served hot or cold. It is suitable to reheat.

Preparation time: about 25 minutes (excluding cooking times)

Serves 4-6.

220g pumpkin (we used butternut pumpkin)
220g potato
220g sweet potato
25ml (1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon) oil
1 small red onion, peeled and roughly chopped
70g (about 6 small) mushrooms, roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic, separated, unpeeled
44g (1/3 cup) frozen peas
4 large eggs (we use eggs with a minimum weight of 59g)
44g (1/2 cup) grated parmesan
40ml (2 tablespoons) cream
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Extra 1/2 teaspoon oil, for pan

Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius (180 degrees Celsius fan-forced).

Peel pumpkin, potato and sweet potato and cut into bite-sized chunks. Place on a baking tray, drizzle with one tablespoon of oil and toss to coat with oil. Season with salt and pepper.

Add chopped onion, chopped mushroom and garlic to tray and drizzle with one teaspoon of oil. Toss with other vegetables. Continue baking for 20-25 minutes, until all the vegetables are cooked through.

Remove garlic from its skin, place in a medium bowl and mash with a fork. Add eggs, parmesan cheese, cream, salt and pepper to bowl. Whisk, or beat with a fork, until combined.

Heat extra 1/2 teaspoon oil in a 26cm diameter (measured across the top) frying pan over medium heat. Cover base of pan with vegetables.

Cook the frittata for about 11-13 minutes, until it is golden brown on the bottom. Periodically check the underside of the frittata to ensure it is not browning too quickly. If it is, reduce the heat. During the cooking time, we use an egg slice to gently pull small areas of the cooked egg mixture aside, allowing uncooked (runny) egg mixture to flow to the bottom of the pan.

When it is cooked on the underside, run an egg slice around the edge of the frittata to loosen. Slide out onto a plate. Invert frying pan over frittata and hold the plate with one hand and the frying pan with the other. Keep the plate and frying pan together as you flip the frying pan back over. The frittata should now be cooked side up in the pan.

Cook for a further 3-5 minutes, or until cooked through and golden on both sides. Slide frittata out of frying pan onto a plate, slice and serve or refrigerate until required.

Best frittata I've ever tasted! Made this for a mother's group lunch and everyone loved it, including my 11 month old daughter. Great way to get vegies into kids!

This was absolutely fantastic - I also added zucchini which gave it a bit of extra colour. While it was a little labour intensive, it was well worthwhile. Thanks.
