Courgettes and goat's cheese make a super-tasty pairing in this quick-to-prepare frittata. Perfect for a light lunch.


  • 4tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 2 medium courgettes, sliced
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 150g (5½ oz) goat's cheese
  • 20g packet chives, finely chopped

Top tip: Make the frittata with your favourite veg (red pepper is good) and try substituting the goat's cheese with feta cheese, if preferred.


  1. Pre-heat the grill to high. Heat 2tbsp of the oil in a medium-sized frying pan and fry the onion for 5 mins. Add the courgettes and cook for a further 5 mins.
  2. Stir in the beaten eggs, goat's cheese and half of the chives, and cook slowly on a low heat for 6-8 mins.
  3. Finish under the grill until the egg has set. Turn the frittata out on to a plate and serve straightaway with a chive oil made by whizzing the remaining oil and chives together with a handheld blender.

I also didn't have an onion, so just made it without, but added fresh basil, chilli flakes and cheddar rather than goat's cheese to the egg mix. I also added in some Quorn chicken-style pieces which I'd recommend if you have some in the freezer. What a cheap, simple recipe. I'll definitely be making this frittata again.


Yummy! Only had a courguette, some baby tomatoes, goat's cheese and 3 eggs so did in the way directed above (minus the onions and chive oil) and put some sliced tomatoes on top when I grilled it. Was good - Thanks
