Caramelised Onion vegetarian Frittata Recipe

Caramelised Onion Frittata Recipe

Frittatas are one of the most versatile dishes. They can be enjoyed by those who opt for a vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free or refined-carbohydrate diet and pretty much everyone else, too. They’re a crowd-pleaser, packed with nutrients and one of my favourite things to serve up any time of the day. Just like eggs, frittatas are versatile in nature. They surpass food trends (cauliflower rice, who!) and are great for just about any occasion. You can serve this vegetarian frittata at a family lunch, for a slow Saturday morning breakfast or easy mid-week dinner.
