I taste of Spain with a healthy hit of broccoli. This dish is great for breakfast, lunch OR dinner and can easily be packed for work lunches.

Served hot with olive sourdough.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 4-6 servings

1 garlic clove
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 broccoli head
1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes
Black Pepper
8 free range eggs
1/2 cup grated cheese

Preheat the oven to 175 C.

In an ovenproof nonstick pan, heat oil and cook the garlic over a moderately high heat for 30 seconds.

Add florets of broccoli and chilli flakes and cook for 1 minute.

Stir in 2 tablespoons of water, season with salt and pepper and cook until broccoli is cooked but firm.

In a bowl, whisk the eggs with pink salt and black pepper.

Pour the egg mixture over the broccoli, stir and leave.

Cook until it sets around the edges, will take about 3 minutes.

Sprinkle with grated cheese and put in the oven.

Bake the frittata until the center is just set, should take about 12 minutes.

Serve warm or at room temperature.

Serve with toast, salad or enjoy on its own.
