wild leek frittata


On Sunday Silvia brought us a little bunch of wild leeks she had gathered in the hills. Augusta made a frittata (flat omelette) with them last night.

First she gently sautèed the finely sliced leek in butter and olive oil. In a bowl, she mixed a little flour with a little milk and added 5 eggs, salt and pepper. She beat the mixture well and poured it into the frying pan with the leeks. When the bottom was set she turned the omelette over with the aid of a plate and cooked the other side.

I love the satisfaction you get from picking and cooking wild foods!
