  • Bring a large skillet to a medium heath and add 2 tbsp of olive oil. Add the leek and the green onions until they soften. Add the herbs, lettuce and spinach and cook while stirring for a few minutes. Drain in a sieve to let all the water out.

  • Whisk the eggs together with the spices in a bowl. If you're a spicy person like us, use as much as you want. Add the herb mix, the walnuts and the sun dried tomatoes. Preheat the oven with 180°C.

  • Bring an oven-safe skillet (about 20 cm) to a medium heath and add the remaining oil. Pour the egg herbs mix in the skillet and cover with a lit or use aluminium foil. Let it cook for 5 minutes or a bit more until it starts to get a bit of a brown color.
  • The last part of cooking happens in the oven. Remove the lit and transfer the skillet into the middle of the oven. Bake for 3 more minutes or if needed a few minutes more. Feel with your hands if the eggs are cooked well.
  • Now the tricky part: you are going to flip the frittata into a plate. Best is if you can do this together. When you're alone, maybe just leave it in the skillet. Use a big plate that fits perfectly on top of the frittata. Put it on top of it and turn the skillet upside down. Serve with a salad.
