Frittata di verdure arrostite

To intensify the flavours of summer vegetables roast them in a hot oven first. Add plenty of fresh herbs and generous quantities of freshly grated pecorino to add maximum flavour.

(serves four to six people)

Ingredients

eggs
6
violet aubergines
1/2
red pepper
1
courgettes
1
cherry tomatoes
a handful
pecorino cheese
2 tablespoons grated
parsley
1 tbs finely chopped
basil
a small handful, torn seasoning
extra virgin olive oil
butter

Preparation

Pre-heat a hot oven, 230°C/475F/Gas 9.
Wash and de-seed the vegetables and dice them all into cubes. Lay them on a baking tray and drizzle them well with extra virgin olive oil, some Maldon sea salt and some sprigs of fresh thyme and oregano.
Roast them for 10 minutes or so until they are just brown at the edges. Remove the herbs and allow to cool.

For the frittata
Beat the eggs in a bowl and add the other ingredients including any juices from the roasted vegetables.
Warm a tablespoon of olive oil and about 20 g butter in a large non-stick frying pan.
Add the egg mixture and cook over a slow heat until the frittata is almost set.
Put a large plate over the frying pan and use this to flip the frittata upside down and slide it back into the frying pan. Cook for a further few minutes until it is dry. Allow to cool but do not refrigerate. Serve at room temperature.
