Tuna, Zucchini and Pepper Frittata

1 Tbsp. sunflower oil

1 onion, chopped

1 zucchini, thinly sliced

1 red pepper, seeded and sliced

4 eggs

2 Tbsp. semi-skimmed milk or soy/rice/goat milk

1 – 7 oz. can tuna in water, drained and flaked

2 tsp. dried herbs de Provence

½ cup grated Red Leicester cheese or goat/sheep cheese

salt and ground black pepper

Heat half the oil in a shallow saucepan, Add the onion, zucchini and red pepper and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Beat the eggs with the milk in a small bowl. Heat the remaining oil in a heavy-based omelette pan. Add the cooked zucchini and red pepper, flaked tuna and herbs and season well. Pour the egg mixture into the frying pan on top of the vegetable mixture and cook over a medium heat until the eggs are beginning to set. Pull the sides into the middle to allow the uncooked eggs to run onto the pan and then continue the cooking undisturbed until the frittata is golden underneath. Meanwhile heat the grill. Sprinkle the cheese over the top of the frittata and grill until the cheese has melted and the top is golden. Cut the frittata into wedges and serve immediately with salad.
