Chorizo, kale & pumpkin frittata

Sometimes the simplest of dishes are the most flavoursome. I hate wasting calories on boring sandwiches at lunchtime and I like to have something quite substantial especially on the days when I am heading to work. This is a simple recipe and is both filling and nutritious. This makes enough for a hungry adult and a picky toddler.

What you will need;

100g chorizo sausage, chopped
100g pumpkin flesh, chopped
A handful of kale with the tough stems removed
4 eggs, lightly whisked
Salt & pepper

Fry the chorizo over a medium heat until starting to crispen, no need to add oil to the pan as the chorizo will release enough of its own.
Add the pumpkin and kale and fry until the pumpkin is soft.
Add the eggs and cook gently until the centre is cooked.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper before serving.

Quick and easy lunch for one and a half!
