SPRING BRINGS sunshine, new growth and all of the fresh flavours that come with them – so what’s not to love? Vegetables like asparagus, spring onions, peppers, broad beans and new potatoes are just a few of the edible wonders of the season.

Eggs are a fantastic way to use up anything leftover in the fridge, and make a very wholesome, protein-packed dinner. They’re also very economical, so the obvious choice when looking for a quick yet healthy midweek meal.

Whether you’re looking for a fuss free brunch, lunch of dinner, a frittata is a great way to get creative with those eggs in the fridge. We’ve listed some of our favourite recipes below.
