The Health Boost share their special asparagus recipe just for us Sevenoaks Mums…

When you love asparagus, the season is not quite long enough, so I try and come up with new recipes to include them at least a couple of times a week. This new recipe could very quickly become a seasonal staple for my family. It is quick to prepare, nutritionally balanced, can be adapted, could be eaten hot or cold, makes a perfect picnic or lunchbox item and when cut into squares, it’s a great finger food for the younger ones. What are you waiting for?

THE HEALTH BOOST

Eating local and seasonal foods is very important to us but offering quick and easy healthy options is our main goal. This recipe can be tailored to your taste, special dietary requirements as well as seasonal availability. You can easily remove the cheese for a dairy free option and replace with pancetta or chorizo! If asparagus season is over, chopped peppers, spinach, kale or even garden peas are a great option. I would definitely recommend adding your (maybe) leftover roast potatoes from Sunday lunch into this frittata and there you have it: a perfect prepared ahead lunch box for Monday!
