Serves Eight

2½ tbsp. oil, plus extra for greasing
2 large red onions, sliced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2½ tsp ground cumin
2 tsp smoked paprika
12 large eggs
2 tsp fine sea salt
150ml soured cream
30g coriander
50g Parmesan, finely grated – use vegetarian cheese, if required
1x198g tin sweetcorn, drained
3 tbsp. lime juice
200g feta, crumbled – use vegetarian cheese, if required
2 ripe avocados

100g cherry tomatoes, halved


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Grease and line a 20cm x 30cm x 5cm deep ovenproof dish or roasting tin.
2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the red onions with a pinch of salt for 12-15 minutes until soft. Add the garlic and spices and cook for a further 2-3 minutes, stirring. Spread out on a plate to cool.
3. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs with the salt and soured cream. Chop most of the coriander, reserving a few leaves for garnish, then stir through the eggs along with the cooled onions, Parmesan, sweetcorn, 2 tablespoons of the lime juice, half the feta and some freshly ground black pepper.
4. Pour this mixture into the prepared dish. Slice the avocado, brush the tops of the slices with the remaining lime juice and gently arrange over the top, taking care not to let them sink too much. Nestle the halved tomatoes in between and scatter over the remaining feta.

5. Bake for 40-45 minutes until golden brown and set. Leave to rest for at least 5-10 minutes before cutting into squares and garnishing with a few coriander leaves. Best enjoyed warm or at room temperature, not fridge cold.


The cooked and cooled frittata will keep in the fridge for up to 2 days. Remove from the fridge 30 mins before serving.
