Servings: Change Serving


Steam spinach in a little water until just wilted. Drain and chop. Heat butter and oil and sauté leeks and baby marrows for 3 minutes. Add stock (use a cube) and sugar and cook until just soft. Add spinach, season and remove from stove. Mix eggs and fromage frais and stir into mixture. If you have a pan that can go into the oven, leave mixture in it. Alternatively, transfer to an oven-to-table dish. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs and bake in a preheated 180 ºC oven until set, 20 minutes. Serve as a vegetable, side dish or as a light main course with a salad. This is more like a crustless quiche than a frittata. It's wonderfully easy and delicious hot or cold.

Smelly microwave?
Remove cooking smells from your microwave oven by simply slicing a cucumber, spreading it out on a plate and cooking it in the oven at 100% for five minutes.
