We also like to include vegetables we have lying around in the fridge, so in this recipe we added cauliflower, but it’s left as optional.

If using cauliflower, it is cut into bite sized florets, then extra virgin olive oil and garlic are heated in a frypan and the cauliflower is then cooked before adding it to the frittata mix before putting it in the oven.
