New Potato & Pea Frittata


One week you have nothing to harvest and the next you have a row of potatoes and a basketful of peas! The question is, what should one do with such ingredients? Make New Potato and Pea Frittata of course. I can’t pretend this is my own recipe – I found it in this month’s Delicious magazine – but it is perfect for making use of your harvest right now. Right down to the sprig of mint!

New Potato & Pea Frittata


  • 10 new potatoes
  • half an onion or a few shallots
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 courgettes
  • 6 eggs
  • 12 pods of peas
  • Stilton or other blue cheese
  • 1 sprig of fresh mint

You’ll also need a sturdy frying pan


  1. Chop the onions and garlic and fry for a few minutes
  2. Add the chopped courgette to the pan and fry for a few minutes until golden
  3. Boil the potatoes and slice when cool
  4. Pop the peas into a bowl and add the 6 eggs. Beat.
  5. Add the courgette and onion mixture, and the sliced potatoes to the egg mixture. Season.
  6. Crumble some of the blue cheese in and mix
  7. Put some olive oil into the frying pan and pour in the mixture. Let it cook for a few minutes. Once the mixture is set add some more cheese to the top and place the pan under a hot grill

  1. Looks delicious – but our few peas always get eaten before they can make it indoors!

  2. Yum! Thanks this inspired my dinner tonight…although only the shallots and mint were grown by me. I’ll have to wait a week or two for the rest of the veggie ingredients.

  3. Looks delicious, at what point do you use 10 new potatoes?!

  4. Oops forgot to add the potatoes to the instructions – thanks for the heads up.

  5. Thank you for this recipe! We have a TON of potatoes and there are only so many roasted potatoes a person can stand.

    Our peas are just on the brink so we’ll be sure to use this recipe as soon as we can.

    I love your blog by the way! I just found it today but I’ve enjoyed clicking around.
