In the garden now...COURGETTES
Courgette, Feta and Mint Frittata
(as found online from Delicious Magazine)

This refreshing vegetarian frittata recipe uses feta and mint, which gives it a lovely Mediterranean flavour.

Serves 4
Hands-on time 25 min
Easy
 

INGREDIENTS
- 2 medium courgettes
- Handful fresh mint leaves
- 1 small onion
- Olive oil for shallow frying
- 8 medium free-range eggs
- Good pinch cayenne pepper
- 60g feta
- Fresh chilli (optional) to serve


METHOD
- 1.Grate the courgettes into a bowl. Reserve a few mint leaves, then roughly chop and add the rest to the courgettes. Season well. Finely chop the onion, then stir in well.

- 2.Heat a large frying pan with a little olive oil and add the courgette, mint and onion mixture. Fry for 5 minutes until softened.

-3.Heat the grill to high. Beat the eggs in a bowl with the cayenne pepper and a little seasoning. Crumble the feta, then stir about two-thirds into the eggs. Pour into the pan, letting the egg flow evenly through the courgette mixture. Cook for 4-5 minutes until the egg begins to just set on the base, then put under the hot grill and cook until just cooked through and golden.

-04.Scatter the remaining feta over the frittata with the reserved mint leaves and the sliced fresh red chilli, if you like. Take the pan to the table and cut into 4 to serve.
