Ingredients you'll need
  • 1 onion
  • A head of broccoli
  • 1 garlic clove
  • A handful of dill
  • 6 eggs
  • ½ x 200g feta
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 50g peppery salad leaves
From your kitchen
  • 4 tbsp water
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tsp olive oil
Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Peel and finely chop the onion. Break the broccoli into small florets, around 2cm long. Chop the stalk into small chunks.

  • 2.

    Warm an ovenproof frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion with 2 tbsp water and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook and stir for 5 mins, till the onion starts to soften.

  • 3.

    While the onion cooks, peel and crush the garlic. Finely chop the dill stalks and leaves. Heat your grill to high.

  • 4.

    Add the broccoli to the pan with 2 more tbsp water. Pop on a lid and gently cook over a medium-low heat for 5-8 mins till the broccoli is tender.

  • 5.

    While the broccoli cooks, crack the eggs into a bowl. Crumble in half the pack of feta. Whisk together with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  • 6.

    Add 1 tsp each of the ground cumin, turmeric and smoked paprika to the frying pan. Add the garlic and most of the dill. Give everything a good stir to mix it all together.

  • 7.

    Pour the egg mixture into the pan. Gently cook for 5-8 mins till the bottom of the omelette is set. Transfer the omelette to the grill and grill for 8 mins till the top is set.

  • 8.

    While the omelette cooks, toss the salad leaves with 2 tsp olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Serve the omelette in wedges with the salad, garnished with the remaining dill.

  • Tip

    Things can only get feta
    Wrap your leftover feta in cling film and store in the fridge for 3-4 days. Try roasting a squash, like butternut or onion, till tender, then scooping out the flesh and mashing it with the leftover feta, some chopped parsley and a pinch of salt and pepper.
