Impress the family with this delicious frittata recipe, which is ideal for a midweek vegetarian lunch and full of high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals. Cooking in a Miele Combination Steam Oven enhances the flavours and colours of the ingredients, while minimising the risk of overcooking and drying out the frittata


  • 100g spinach leaves

  • Half a butternut squash, chopped into chunks

  • 1 large potato, chopped into chunks

  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil

  • 200g vegetarian feta cheese, crumbled

  • 90g coarsely grated vegetarian cheddar cheese

  • 8 eggs, beaten lightly

  • 1tsp salt

  • ½ tsp black pepper

  • Handful of spring onions, finely sliced


  1. Steam the potato and squash in a perforated steam container on 100°C for 4 minutes. When ready, transfer into a large frying pan with the oil and fry gently until golden.

  2. Steam the spinach in a perforated container at 90°C for 1 minute. Allow to cool slightly, and then squeeze out any moisture by pressing the leaves down in a sieve.

  3. Beat the eggs into a jug and add the salt and pepper.

  4. Arrange the spinach and spring onions in the pan with the potato and squash, and then pour over the beaten eggs with salt and pepper and both cheeses.

  • Stage 1: Combination cooking, Fan plus 170°C, 50% moisture, 5 minutes
