protein-packed pea, feta & mint frittata

VEGETARIAN

“The fresh taste of the peas and mint in this frittata work perfectly with the saltiness of the feta. Try a local blue cheese or goats cheese – both work deliciously well! Serve warm or cold for brunch, dinner, picnics or pop a slice in your lunchbox for work”.
