This is a satisfying meal both because it's tasty and because all the ingredients can be local (well, all the ingredients but the salt and pepper!).


2 tablespoons
sunflower oil
potato, red (diced small)
onion (minced)
4 cups
spinach (chopped)
1 tablespoon
dill, fresh
1/2 cup
cheese, feta
black pepper


Heat the oil in a large oven-proof skillet. Sauté the potato and onion for about 8 minutes, until they are tender and golden. If the potato begins to cling to the bottom of the pan, add a little water. Add the chopped spinach. When the spinach wilts, stir in the dill, salt if needed, and pepper. Pour the eggs over the vegetables, tilting the pan to distribute them evenly. Sprinkle on the cheese. Cover the pan and cook on low heat for 10 minutes, until the eggs are set and golden on the bottom.

To brown the top of the frittata place the frittata under a preheated broiler for about 2 minutes. If you’re skillet isn’t the oven-proof kind, carefully slide the frittata onto a plate and then flip it over, back into the skillet, to brown the other side. To serve, cut the frittata in half.
