Method
1.
On a plate, drizzle the asparagus in olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roll the asparagus round on the plate so that the seasoning sticks
Room for a little one
This is a perfect step for children of all ages to complete. Explain to them as they roll that they are helping to give asparagus even more flavour
2.
Grill the asparagus on the barbecue or under a hot grill for approximately 3-4 minutes - be careful not to overcook as you want the spears to retain a bit of crunch
3.
Crack the eggs into 4 separate bowls - 2 per bowl. Whip the eggs with a fork until foamy. Add salt, pepper and chopped mint to each bowl
4.
Place a very small frying pan over a medium heat and add oil and butter. Pour in 1 bowl of the whipped egg mixture and stir quickly with the back of a fork
5.
After approximately 1 minute, or when the frittata is half set, arrange some asparagus and soft cheese on top
6.
Lower the heat and cook for another minute. Carefully slide the frittata onto a plate. Repeat the process to make the rest of the frittatas
7.
To finish, grind some black pepper over the frittatas and drizzle in a little olive oil. Serve immediately
