Mushroom frittata Created by Jake’s Kitchen for Phantom Apparel London
Serves 1 - 2
This is great for a lunch or to have in the fridge if you want a healthy snack.
4 Shallots, finely chopped
250 g Chestnut mushrooms, cut into quarters or eighths
4 Eggs, lightly beaten in a mixing bowl
Salt and pepper
Small handful of chopped parsley, optional
Pre heat your grill. Heat about 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a non stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the shallots and mushrooms, salt and pepper. Turn the heat up and cook, stirring occasionally until the mushrooms are starting to brown around the edges and all the liquid has evaporated. Transfer everything from the frying pan into the bowl with the eggs in. Put the frying back on the heat with a tablespoon of olive oil then mix the mushrooms and eggs and parsley, if using. Pour this mix into the frying pan, cook for about 1 minute then put under the grill for a few minutes until golden on top. Allow to cool to room temperature before serving.
Serve with a dressed green salad.
"Cooking has been a big part of my life since leaving university almost 17 years ago. I’ve never really seen it as a job, more a passion which I am fortunate enough to earn an income from. Knowing how to cook has also been so useful when it comes to my other passion - exercise.
I’m not obsessive about it but I know that I feel much better after I’ve done some, not just physically but mentally too. And it’s always been easier if I am eating well. I don’t like diets or fasts, but just try to apply a bit of common sense. Nothing is off limits, but I do pay attention to what I’m eating ands its usually easy to tell if something is doing more harm than good. Moderation is the key!
Life can be super busy so for me its all about being able to prepare food which is delicious, uncomplicated, and most importantly quick, but without compromising on health. I’m lucky that my background in food has helped me build up a bit of knowledge which I can use when cooking for myself and my family, and I'm pleased to share it with you through the Phantom Apparel brand."
