          Serves 2 Ingredients
  • 4 large eggs, whisked
  • 1 tablespoon butter (olive oil will work as a dairy replacement, making sure you season the eggs generously if so)
  • 1/2 cup of feta cheese, crumbed (cashew cheese will work for a dairy replacement)
  • 2 leeks – sliced into thin rings
  • 1/2 bunch silverbeet – stalks removed and chopped roughly
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped dill
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • Olive oil
  • Juice & rind from 1 lemon
Instructions  Preheat a non-stick pan over a medium heat. When hot, add butter to and allow to melt. add in the leeks, cover and simmer until tender (usually 4-5 takes about minutes). While the leeks are cooking, add the eggs, cheese and 1/2 of the dill to a mixing bowl, season and stir well. When the leeks are nicely softened, pour the egg mix into the pan, turn down the heat a bit, cover and leave to cook until the frittata starts to puff and golden (you can finish off under the grill if you like the eggs more well done). Set your frittata to one side to allow it to cool slightly, this will allow the flavours to fully release. While the frittata is cooling, heat a deeper pan or wok and add a few glugs of olive oil. When hot, add the garlic and walnuts and toast for 3-4 minutes. Chuck in the silverbeet and cook for another 2-3 minutes until it starts to wilt. Remove from the heat, stir in lemon rind and lemon juice, season. Serve your frittata cut into wedges along side the sautéed silverbeets and garnish with the remainder of the fresh diill. Enjoy!   Spotlight on leeks More delicately flavoured than their allium cousins garlic and onions, leeks are a great source of vitamins and minerals and have super health benefits thanks to their phytonutrient content. The goodness in leeks includes:
  • Vitamin A - essential to maintain healthy eyes and for healthy blood cell development
  • Vitamin K– regulates blood flow, maintains healthy circulation, and promotes bone health through the activation of osteocalcin
  • B complex vitamin folate – aids cardiovascular health and important during pregnancy to prevent neural tube defects in newborns
  • Allicin - anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties, helps cholesterol levels and liver health
  • Phytonutrient antioxidants – helps detoxify the body by tackling free-radicals to avoid oxidative stress and chronic low-level inflammation
