Asparagus and Cherry Tomato Frittata


I think the cherry tomatoes lift the asparagus in this frittata and gives it a little bit more flavour than a plain asparagus frittata.  It’s light, fresh and full of summer.  A great frittata for lunch or supper!   The joy of asparagus is that it is very low in carbs so you can scoff lots of it! 


250g asparagus, trimmed

8 – 10 cherry tomatoes


4 spring onions, trimmed and cut

6 eggs

4 tblspn Parmesan cheese

2 tblspn olive oil

salt and pepper


  • Cook the asapargus in boiling water for about 8 – 10 minutes until tender.
  • Preheat the grill.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and add the spring onions, asparagus and cherry tomatoes.  Cook for about 1 minute.
  • Beat the eggs and season to taste.  Add the Parmesan Cheese and blend well.
  • Add the egg mixture to the pan and cook for about 5 – 8  minutes until the bottom of the frittata is firm and the top nearly set.
  • Place until a grill and cook for 2 -3 minutes until the top is golden brown and set.
  • Eat and enjoy!
