How to make Asparagus and Goat Cheese Frittata

Ingredients

  • A scant tablespoon of olive oil and a knob of butter
  • A bundle of asparagus,
  • 5 eggs
  • 50 mls milk
  • 100g goats cheese, I used Bluebell farm goats cheese. Feta cheese and cream cheese work equally well

Instruction

Preheat oven to 425°. In a small saucepan, bring ½ cup water to a boil. Stir in quinoa, cover, and cook over low heat until water is absorbed and quinoa is tender, about 10 minutes. Let cool. (You’ll have ½ cup cooked quinoa.)

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, Parmesan, salt, and pepper until combined. Whisk in cooked quinoa and set aside.

In a 10″ nonstick, ovenproof skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add asparagus and shallot and cook 5 minutes. Add spinach and cover for 2 minutes. Uncover and stir until spinach has completely wilted, about 2 minutes.
