I was recently on holiday in England for a family wedding and en route home, my plane got cancelled and delayed 28 hours. I had to push back work and reorganize my schedule, which isn't great for a freelancer!

 

I was very excited to learn that Metro now does online grocery shopping. So, I put my order together while I was stranded in the airport and came home to the groceries pretty much waiting for me. DREAM! The veggies were super fresh and the first thing I made was a frittata with local Ontario asparagus.

 

This recipe is so great to have in the fridge all week. It can be eaten cold with a salad for dinner or warmed up in the morning for breakfast. It doesn't get any fresher!

 

 

Ingredients:

 

1 tbsp olive oil

1 onion, diced

½ bell pepper, diced

5 cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced

1 bunch asparagus, ends trimmed and sliced into 1-inch pieces

10 cherry tomatoes, sliced in half

1 tsp salt, divided

12 eggs

 

Directions:

 

1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

 

2. In a large bowl whisk together eggs and half the salt.

 

3. Heat olive oil in a 12-inch cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until golden brown, stirring often, about 5 minutes. Stir in diced pepper, sliced mushrooms and asparagus pieces. Cook until tender crisp, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in cherry tomatoes and sprinkle with remaining salt. Pour egg mixture over top of vegetables. Let cook on stove, 5 minutes. Transfer to oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, until frittata has no jiggle. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
