Ingredients

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large, nonstick frying pan with a flameproof handle. Add the onion and courgettes and fry over gentle heat for 5 minutes, or until lightly browned and just cooked.

  2. Preheat the grill to a hot setting.

  3. Beat together the eggs, 2 tablespoons of water and chopped mint. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  4. Add the egg mixture to the frying pan. Cook, without stirring, for 4-5 minutes, or until the frittata is almost set and the underside is golden brown.

  5. Transfer the pan to a hot grill and cook for 3-4 minutes until the top is golden and the frittata is cooked through.

  6. Cut into wedges and serve.
