  1. Add the olive oil to a (20cm / 8”) omelette pan and gently fry the peppers and spring onion until soft and starting to turn brown.
  2. Meanwhile whisk the eggs and extra yolks and season with some salt and pepper.
  3. Add the beans to the pan, stir and then pour the egg mixture over. Give the pan a gentle shake, then leave to cook over a low heat for about 5 mins.
  4. When the egg is nearly set put the pan under a hot grill for a few minutes until the top of the frittata is has risen (it will look puffy) and is golden.
