Sweet Potato and Leek Frittata

Eggs are highly nutritious − they contain plenty of vitamins and minerals and are one of the few foods naturally containing vitamin D.

Ingredients (Serves 6)

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 800g sweet potato, peeled
  • 200g leek, thinly sliced
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp chopped sage
  • 6 eggs
  • 125ml semi skimmed milk

Method

Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas Mark 4. Grease a 25 cm round flan dish with a little oil or butter. Cut the sweet potato into thin slices and boil until tender. Heat the oil in a large pan and cook the garlic and leek over a low heat until tender. Stir in half the sage.

Place half the sweet potato over the base of the prepared dish, top with the leek mixture, then the remaining sweet potato. Combine the eggs, milk and parsley and pour over the potato, sprinkle with the remaining sage. Bake in the oven for 35 minutes.
