1 tablespoon olive oil
10 free range organic eggs
1 red onion, thinly sliced
2 large handfuls of baby spinach
1 small handful fresh basil leaves
8 cherry tomatoes, halved
Whisk the eggs in a bowl until light and fluffy, season to taste with sea salt or pink salt and freshly ground black pepper. Heat oil in an oven proof pan over medium to high heat. Add onion and saute for 1 – 3 minutes or until onion softens. Add the spinach and basil leaves and stir until wilted. Pour the egg mixture over the top. Reduce the heat and cook until it hardens a little. Place the cherry tomatoes on the top and crumbled over the feta. Cook until set around the edges but still wobbly in the middle. Transfer the pan to the oven and cook for around 30 minutes or until the frittata is set and golden on top. Cut into slices and serve with salad greens.
