Oven temperature: grill

Melt the butter in an ovenproof frying pan and sauté the onion until soft. Add the courgettes and broccoli and sauté until almost cooked. Remove from the pan and set aside.
Whisk the eggs lightly and add salt and freshly ground black pepper. Pour into the frying pan and fry over medium to low heat for a minute, so that the bottom sets.

Add the vegetables and fry for a few more minutes, until the edges start to set. Sprinkle the cheese over and place under a hot grill. Cook for another 3-4 minutes, or until the centre of the frittata has set. Slice into wedges and serve with salad.

Tip of the day

Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
