It's way too hot to cook, and I've definitely been all about the minimal-time, minimal-effort dinners at the moment.
Which is why this gluten free frittata with asparagus, goats' cheese and chorizo is perfect!
This is a delicious summer meal which can be prepared in a short amount of time, and eaten hot or cold.
In fact, this would be great made the night before and then packed in a gluten free picnic with some other goodies like my gluten free scotch eggs!
I think chorizo and goat's cheese is an amazing combination, and one which definitely shouts 'summer'.
With the tenderstem and asparagus you'll also make sure you're getting a good dose of greens, and this is even better when served up with a salad too.
This gluten free crustless quiche recipe is so versatile as well.
You could easily change up the ingredients and make whatever flavour combinations you like!
I also like it because it's a great one if you're after a low carb and high protein meal.
And it tastes so good!
To make this recipe I find it best to use a silicone cake tin - as this way you can just pop the quiche out once it's cooked.
However, if you're using a metal or ceramic tin I'd recommend greasing it with a little oil or butter first so you don't get the quiche stuck!
My gluten free frittata recipe
- 100 g chopped chorizo
- 5-6 asparagus tips
- 5-6 tenderstem broccoli
- 2 handfuls spinach leaves
- 9 large large eggs
- 70 g soft goats' cheese, (broken up into small chunks)
- 1 tsp virgin olive oil
- Preheat the oven to 180'C. Meanwhile, add the chorizo and olive oil to a frying pan and fry on a high heat for 2-3 minutes, until the chorizo starts to crisp up a little.
- Slice the tenderstem and asparagus lengthways and add to the pan with the chorizo. Fry for an extra minute then remove from the heat.
- Add the eggs to a large measuring jug and mix well. Add the chorizo, asparagus and tenderstem, along with the spinach and goats' cheese. Mix well.
- Pour into a round silicone cake tin (or greased metal/ceramic tin) and make sure the filling is evenly distributed. Bake in the centre of the oven for around 15 minutes until the centre is cooked through.
- Remove from the oven and either eat or cool completely and refrigerate ready to eat cold. Will keep for a couple of days in the fridge.
