Frittatas are an endlessly versatile dish that are equally as delicious as a snack or a main dish for a meal. You can serve them warm or cold and they are a perfect pre-prepare option for lunchboxes.
Large knob of butter
½ red pepper, finely sliced
½ onion, finely sliced
50g (2oz) fresh Kale, chopped
Some freshly ground black pepper.
1 Melt the butter in a heavy frying pan and lightly fry the pepper and onion for about a minute, then cover with the chopped kale.
2 Whisk the eggs and pour them into the frying pan. Give the whole mixture a good stir and cook on a low heat for about 15 minutes, or until the whole mixture is set.
3 Gently tip out onto a plate, serve a slice immediately and/or chill for the lunch box.
