Beetroot and Feta Frittata

I know beetroot and feta sound a bit wrong, but this fantastic frittata tastes soooo right! It’s such a tasty but simple supper to start the week. It’s cheap, fast and meat free! This recipe only serves 2 but it’s easily doubled, just use a larger pan.

TIP!  You can replace the feta with fresh ricotta, if you like.

Note: If your frying pan doesn’t have a heatproof handle, just wrap the handle in several layers of foil to protect it during the grilling of the frittata. Be careful when removing the pan – the handle with be super hot!
