Asparagus and goat’s cheese frittata

Asparagus and goat’s cheese frittata

Eat Right For Your Body Type
Lisa Linder

Eggs are fantastic breakfast or brunch food for vata as they are warming and nourishing but lighter on the system than other types of protein. A frittata is a great way of using up vegetables that are lying around – you can use whatever you have to hand. I love the addition of goat’s cheese, but the frittata tastes just as good without it. Ideally make this in a small omelette pan or pancake pan so that the frittata is quite deep.


Quantity Ingredient
3 large asparagus spears, woody ends discarded, sliced thinly on the diagonal
4 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
8 large fresh mint leaves, shredded
1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 tablespoon butter or ghee
1/2 small–medium onion, peeled and chopped
40g crumbly goat’s cheese
good pinch freshly ground black pepper


  1. Blanch the asparagus in a bowl of boiling water for 1–2 minutes or until cooked to your liking, then drain. Whisk the eggs with the seasoning, lemon zest and mint.
  2. Preheat the grill to 180ºC (or medium).
  3. Heat the oil and butter or ghee in a small non-stick omelette or pancake pan (mine is 15 cm in diameter) with a heatproof handle. Add the onion, cook until soft and turning golden at the edges. Add the asparagus, whisked eggs and goat’s cheese to the pan. Turn the heat down as low as possible, cover and cook for 2–4 minutes. Uncover and cook until the frittata feels firm about three-quarters the way up.
  4. Remove the pan from the hob and place under the grill. Grill until the top is lightly browned and has puffed up.


  • To serve one, halve the quantities and scramble the egg once the onions are done. Serve with wholegrain toast.
