This filling vegetarian frittata makes a great lunch – or serve it with potatoes and salad for a hearty evening meal
- A knob of butter
- 350g (12oz) brown closed cup mushrooms
- 1 small clove garlic, crushed
- 8 eggs, beaten
- Pinch of freshly ground nutmeg
- 50g (2oz) Gruyère cheese
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Melt the butter in a non-stick pan, add the mushrooms and garlic. Season with salt and pepper and sauté for 6-8 mins until golden and tender.
Meanwhile beat the eggs and nutmeg in a large bowl and season well. Pour into the pan and stir well, cook over a gentle heat for a minute. Shake the pan to level the frittata, cover with a baking sheet or a pan lid and cook over a gentle heat for 6-8 mins or until the egg is almost set.
Scatter over the remaining cheese and cook under a hot grill for a further 4-5 mins until the top is golden and set.
Leave to cool in the pan for pan for 5 mins before cutting into wedges and serving warm.
You can eat this frittata cold if you prefer - it makes a great picnic dish.
