Word up Food tubers. Hope you’re well, Jamie
Oliver here. Today I’m going to show you the perfect fritatta, frittata being the Italian
style omelette. It’s quick, it’s delicious so let me show you how to do it.
Let’s start off with the eggs, so just crack in the eggs. I’ve got 6 eggs going in there.
3 eggs per person is more than enough. A basic pinch of salt and pepper is always good.
Give it a little whip up, some people like to whip it well, some people like to just
break it up a little bit so you get streaks of kind of lovely red yolks and whites as
well. Let’s talk about flavour, like an omlette,
like a pizza, like risotto you can do whatever flavour you want. I’m just going to smash
up peas and broad beans and make like a kind of pesto. Sort of a peasto, call it a peasto.
Broad beanso, don’t work. I’m going to put a little bit of salt in there and I’m just
going to smash that up. I’m going to put a little bit of mint in there, into the story.
This is going to be super, super tasty. See I’m just lightly smashing up the peas, lemon
zest has to be in there. Some lemon juice, just to set off the flavours to me. Damn right,
delicious. Half a lemon just goes straight in. You want to add about two tablespoons
of good extra virgin olive oil. So I’m going to take a bit of Parmesan, have a bit of salty
fat in there. Yum. Happy with that. I got my asparagus tips here, just going to
cut them down, put a bit of olive oil in here, into the pan. Often I use a little knob of
butter but I haven’t got any not today. I’m just going to fry those asparagus for a second.
The eggs here. What I’m going to do is put a little spoon into my mix. Just to kind of
get that whipped into it. Look at that, it just kind of turns the eggs a nice green kind
of colour, which i like. Now go straight into the eggs, and then going
to go in with little blobs of my beautiful peas and just for like 35 seconds whilst the
fritatta’s starting to set. Put these bombs in. You can see the egg starting to firm up.
This is the great thing, you can come home, start it, finish it ina couple of minutes.
See how it’s starting to cook like am omelette. you can see those little sheets, it gives
it like a cute little internal texture which is nice. I’m going to go round the edge and
crumble in a bit of feta. And a little bit of Parmesan. And that will cook a treat. I’m
going to put it in the top of the oven, it’s quite nice to get a bit of colour. You know,
you can undercook it and have it. You can just cook it but really most fritatta’s I’ve
eaten around Italy, and I’ve had a lot and they’re kind of cooked through. Whack it in
the oven and cook it until it’s cooked through and a little bit golden on the top. While
that’s cooking I’m going to put a really, simple basic salad together with some pea
shoots, some rocket, raw peas which I love in salads. You can nick a few tomatoes if
you want, beautiful. The other half of the lemon, a little seasoning, bit of olive oil.
Very nice, very simple little salad. Come with me, you can see if you have a look in
there see how the fritatta has doubled in size.
Let’s take it out of there. Turn the oven off. Look, at, that! Just get in there and
push it out like that. Have fun with it, there you go my friends. That is, a beautiful fritatta.
Super quick. Share it with your buddies. I hope you enjoy it, lot’s of love from Mister
