FRITTATA WITH BURRATA AND PESTO

This is a simple yet delicious option for either dinner or lunch and very healthy.

What you need:

•4 oz. (115g) asparagus, tough bottoms removed 

•4 tbsp. green pesto  

•2 tbsp. olive oil 

•8 eggs, lightly beaten 

•¼ cup  (05g) grated Parmesan 

•1 large burrata, room temperature (5oz./150g) 

•basil leaves, to garnish salt and pepper

What to do:

Remove and discard the woody ends of the asparagus spears by cutting off 1-inch off the base of each stem. Cut the asparagus spears into 1-inch (92.5cm) pieces and set aside. 

Heat the olive oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add asparagus and season with salt and pepper. Cook for a minute then quickly pour in eggs and stir everything together with a wooden spoon. Tilt the pan and lift mixture at the edges to allow any runny egg from the top to reach its way to the bottom of the pan. Cook the eggs for 3-4 minutes until the frittata is almost set. Sprinkle some Parmesan cheese over the top of the egg. 

Place a lid over the frying pan and turn off the heat. Leave to stand for 2-3 minutes until the frittata is just set.  

Remove the frittata from the pan onto a warm plate and place the whole burrata in the center of the frittata. Pierce with the tip of a knife and spoon the burrata over the frittata. Drizzle with the pesto and cut into wedges. Garnish with basil leaves and serve immediately.
