Winter is almost gone and spring is already in the air, the light is different today and for the first time this year I was able to keep the windows open and let the light come in.
Spring makes me think of pink and orange, of light dresses and a gentle wind, of weekends drinking punch by the lake and dinners with friends at 7pm, because you don’t want to miss the sweet evening light.
I like all seasons but this one fills my heart with joy: beginning of spring.
So while it’s almost time to say goodbye to winter I sat down for lunch and enjoyed a good frittata with burnt tomatoes (love them so much).
Perfect for a bright day like this one, when all you think about is summer.
Frittata with burnt tomatoes
This is a very easy recipe and I just used the ingredients I had in my kitchen but feel free to add basil, onions or cheese if you like.
2 fresh eggs
extra virgin olive oil
4-5 cherry tomatoes
pinch of salt
Heat 2 tsp of extra virgin olive oil in a pan and add the cherry tomatoes cut in half. Cook for about 3-4 minutes or until almost burnt on one side, whisk the eggs with a pinch of salt and pour in the pan. Beautiful. Now cook both sides of the frittata and enjoy with a glass of red wine and a piece of white pizza.
