This Asparagus Frittata with Feta and Thyme is a good go-to dish when you’re looking for something quick and easy for brunch or supper. Suitable for Gluten-Free and Keto diets.
The asparagus frittata with and feta cheese that you see in that picture was part of the brunch I served a cousin and her other half on Easter monday.
We had such fun notwithstanding the stereotypical division of labor on that day. ‘The girls’ stayed indoors and cooked and chatted about kids and life in general. The boys on the other hand were outside doing dangerous things with trees, saws and bonfires. All the mini chefs were wearing tea-towels on their heads, so that they could be pirates while they watched their pirate TV programme.
Anyway the frittata was accompanied by wild garlic pesto, tomatoes, sliced Wensleydale and blue cheese, homemade malted granary and oat bread, and apple and grape salad. All apart from the bread was prepared and cooked in less than 25 mins.
Frittatas are a good go-to dish when looking for something quick and easy for brunch or supper. And in my kitchen they are part of the normal breakfast routine. Store cupboard staples eggs form the base of this dish whilst the fillings can be anything you have in your pantry / fridge or whatever is in season. Seriously courgettes, beans, peas, swiss chard etc. You name it, it can pretty much be in it.
I love cooking frittatas just because I feel that there is something much more exciting about a dish that is finished under the grill. Or maybe I just feel kinda grown up when I do them and can show off my lovely cast iron frying pan.

What a great alternative for a classic frittata with all the same flavors. Frittatas remind me of spring brunches with my girlfriends. I can’t wait to make this for them.

books, as I found this piece of writing at this site.
What a fabulous eggy dish Bintu and with that fresh asparagus, I bet it tasted divine! Karen
It did Karen, So much so that OH wanted it for a week straight.
Asparagus has been used as a vegetable and medicine, owing to its delicate flavour, diuretic properties, and more. It is pictured as an offering on an Egyptian frieze dating to 3000 BC. Still in ancient times, it was known in Syria and in Spain. Greeks and Romans ate it fresh when in season and dried the vegetable for use in winter.”,”
