Make the most of British produce by eating with the seasons. It’s tastier and can be more nutritious. But most of all, the feeling of being at one with nature adds to your sense of well-being.
British pea season is upon us. It’s at this time of year that the fields and allotments are overflowing with this wonderful vegetable. Let the rain patter outside. Get shelling those peas and make this wonderfully simple pea & chorizo frittata for the family tea tonight.
Pea & Chorizo Frittata
- 70 g peas
- 70g chorizo, sliced
- 4 free range eggs
1. Heat some olive oil in a medium non-stick frying pan. Fry the chorizo for a few minutes and then stir in the peas.
2. Beat the eggs in a bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour this mixture over the chorizo and peas. Cook for a few minutes over a low heat until the tortilla has set.
3. Place the frying pan under a low grill and cook the frittata gently for a few minutes. It is ready when it has set.
This would be great served with a fresh green salad (and some wine of course) at a picnic or around the dinner table.
