Fritata and salad topped w. Pecorino cheese

It wasn’t too long ago that we made fritata (as we were informed is the proper name, rather than omelette), but after getting a new delivery from Årstiderna with Pecorino cheese and olive oil it was time again anyways.

We made a really simple one this time. Just the eggs, water and grate cheese, mix it and pour it into the cast iron pan and then placed thin slices of tomato on top. To get the fritata well done without burning it we use to cover the pan with a lid.

The simple ingredients for the fritata. Eggs, tomatoes, pepper and cheese for topping. The eggs were of course mixed with some water before ending up in the pan.

For the last few minutes we put the grated cheese on top of the fritata and returned it to the stove with the lid on.

The final, good-looking result.

We had also go a fresh delivery of vegetables and avocado from Årstiderna this same day, so we enjoyed the fritata with fresh vegetables. Both the bell pepper, cucumber and the tomatoes were some of the freshest vegetables I have ever tasted, even compared to the farmers’ market vegetables that we got during our year in Dublin. The vegetables were amazingly crispy and so filled with flavours. It is definitely not the last time we buy vegetables from Årstiderna simply because of that reason. It was obvious that they had not stored the vegetables for a week in a distribution center before sending them us. They were maybe not freshly harvested, but close enough. Not even our groceries from FRAM are as fresh as these.

I also want to take the opportunity to brag a bit about the fritata, it was by far the best one I have ever accomplished. Perfect texture all throughout without being burnt or getting stuck in the bottom of the pan. Wonder if that will ever happen again…

Happy cooking,

Cecilia & Magnus
