Baked frittata with ricotta, pulses and vegetables is a rich one-plate meal but very digestible.
It's ideal if you want your children eat vegetables.
Prepare all the aromatic herbs and soy sauce in a saucepan. Add the vegetables, season to taste with salt and let all the ingredients flavour for some minutes on a medium heat. At the end of cooking add the ricotta and Parmesan, mix and switch off the gas. Dress with 4 tablespoons olive oil and let the mixture cool.
Pour the mixture in a bowl, add the egg yolks and a pinch of salt and mix.
Oil a deep baking pan with the remaining olive oil and sprinkle with some breadcrumbs. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Beat egg whites until stiff after adding a pinch of salt; at this point fold in the beaten whites in circular movements from the bottom upwards, using a wooden spoon. Pour the mixture in the baking pan, level the surface, sprinkle with some breadcrumbs and bake for about 20 minutes or until the surface is golden.
