I’ve been making the most of this beautiful Spring weather this week. The temperature is just perfect at the moment so I’ve been going for long walks, picnics and soaking up the sun. I can’t believe how warm it is already here in Tuscany but I’m definitely not complaining!

I’ve also been enjoying some lovely light lunches to go with the beautiful weather like my farro salad and this roasted veg sandwich with avocado mayo and goats cheese, both SO delicious. I also made this yummy spinach and artichoke frittata through the week for my boyfriend’s family.

It’s perfect for Springtime and is filled with delicious green veggies and tangy goats cheese. The great thing about this frittata is that it only takes 25 minutes in the oven and can be eaten hot or cold on it’s own or with a little salad.

To make the frittata I firstly sauté some leek and garlic until soft then add in some frozen peas and spinach. The spinach is wilted down and then I add a sprinkle of salt and pepper.


I used jarred artichokes and cut them up into smaller pieces before adding them to the spinach and leek then it’s all placed in an oven proof dish.

I dollop over some mild, creamy goats cheese then whisk the eggs together with some parmesan and a splash of milk. The eggs are poured over the veggies and goats cheese then it’s baked in the oven for 25 minutes.

The result is light and flavour packed, you’ll love this on a warm Spring afternoon with a little salad!

    I love that you call for free range eggs. I grew up on a farm and there really is a difference in the flavor. Additionally, it’s better for the chickens.

    Long walks in Tuscany followed by a a slice of this gorgeous frittata sounds great. Peas, spinach and artichokes are wonderful together.

    Hi Emily, hope to see you when we’re over in August. I’ve tried and enjoyed a few of the recipes and they are so good. Im looking forward to trying the frittata recipe but in the description in your blog you say the goats cheese is dolloped on the top of the egg mixture but in the method it says to add the goats cheese before adding the eggs; which is the right way? Cheers, Avril xxx

      Hi Avril, so nice to hear from you. We’ll definitely try and get up in August. I add the goats cheese on top of the vegetables then pour over the egg mixture. Sorry I’ll amend that in the post, thanks for pointing that out! ☺️
