Courgette and feta fritatta

As soon as the weather gets warmer it is so much easier to eat healthily. When the temperature rises (which, let's face it, doesn't happen THAT often in the UK), all my body craves is summer fruits and lighter meals. Omelettes are something I make a lot, because they are so quick dish to make and so versatile. You can put in anything you like and it will most likely taste great. Fritattas are essentially omelettes that you finish cooking under the grill instead of flipping them over. I love this one, because the grated courgette makes it very light, the feta cheese gives it a bit of punch and the mint is what makes it special and more delicate.

(Serves 2)
3 eggs
1/2 courgette
100g feta cheese
A handful of fresh mint, chopped


1. Set the grill to medium temperature
2. Beat the eggs
3. Grate the courgette and add it to the eggs
4. Crumble the feta cheese and add to the bowl
5. Add the chopped mint leaves and give it all a stir
6. In a frying pan, put a tablespoon of oliver oil and add the mixture when it is hot
7. Once one side is cooked, remove from the hob and put the pan under the grill to cook the top. Be careful with the handle of your pan. If it is made of plastic, make sure it is outside of the grill!

I normally add a simple salad and some bread with olive oil and a drop of balsamic vinegar. Hope you enjoy it, and if you make it, tweet me a picture @sunshineandglow. I'd love to see your creations!

    1. Thanks! I loved your recipe with the mashed avocado and egg, by the way! I have avocado on toast two or three times a week so I'd love to try it with egg x

  2. Oh yum this looks delicious. I love fritatta but haven't tried it with courgette yet, must do that next instead of potatoes x

    1. Yeah, it goes with anything! Hope you enjoy it x

  3. I love omelettes too. They are a fail safe option when you can't think of anything else. This is something I would like to try out and never really thought of courgettes and egg but I can see how that would work. x

    1. Before I used to slice the courgette but this way it gives it a spongey light texture. X

  4. This looks so yummy! Love omelettes because you can add so many different things in :)

    1. Thanks! I love omelettes too - sometimes I make weird concoctions depending on what's in the fridge but somehow eggs make all the flavours bind together x

  5. This sounds so delicious and so simple to prepare too! Perfect for whipping up after a long day in the office :) x

    1. Absolutely! I think most of what I cook can be made in less than half an hour! x
