Spicy Pumpkin Frittata

Whether you call it a frittata, omelette, or crustless quiche this combination of pumpkin, halloumi cheese, and fresh red chillies is a tasty treat for any occasion. Have it hot straight from the oven or cold with a salad later on.

Spicy Pumpkin Frittata
  • 1½ tablespoons olive oil
  • 175 g halloumi cheese, sliced
  • 500 g pumpkin, diced
  • 2 red chillies, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • ½ tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ - ½ cup mint, roughly chopped
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  1. Heat half the oil in a large frying pan. Cook the halloumi for 1-2 minutes on each side until golden, remove from the pan and set aside.
  2. Add the remaining oil to the pan, then cook the pumpkin for about 10 minutes, until soft and starting to colour.
  3. Add the chilli and garlic and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  4. Pour over the vinegar, then put the halloumi back into the pan, scatter over the mint and pour on the eggs. Cook for 5 minutes until the base is set.
  5. Heat the grill to high. Cook the omelette under the grill for 5 minutes until puffed up and golden.
  6. Serve immediately or allow to cool and serve cold with a salad.
