Easy Leek Frittata with Garden Salad

Posted 2018-04-04 by Maddy Butlerfollow
This is a delicious and light meal, perfect for dinner or lunch. The tangy salad pairs really well with the frittata. The best bit - it's very easy to make!



Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 40 minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients
Olive oil
2 leeks
8 large eggs
1 tsp dried Italian herbs
1/2 head of iceberg lettuce
1 carrot
1 cucumber
1/3 cup kalamata olives
1/3 cup sundried tomatoes
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 heaped tsp Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper

Method
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F).
  • Slice the leeks and wash thoroughly to get any dirt out.
  • Heat a splash of oil in a large frying pan. Add the leeks and cook for about 10 minutes, or until soft.
  • Line a square baking tray with baking paper and spoon in the leeks. Crack the eggs into a separate bowl. Add the dried herbs and season with salt and pepper, then whisk.
  • Pour the egg mixture over the leeks. Stir well, but gently, with a spoon, until the leeks are completely covered by the eggs.
  • Place in the oven for 30 minutes, or until the top starts to brown and the frittata is completely cooked through (you can test with a skewer).



  • While the frittata is cooking, make the salad. Slice the lettuce and add to a large serving bowl. Cut the carrot and cucumber lengthways, then slice and add to the bowl, along with the olives and tomatoes.
  • Add a dash of olive oil, the apple cider vinegar and the mustard to the salad and mix well. Season with salt and pepper.



  • Serve alongside the frittata.
