Leek & Onion Egg-less Frittata

Not too long ago I was raving about the wonderful omelette that I had made for my brunch.  Feeling a bit guilty that my vegan friends would have not been able to share that recipe I devised a special treat that we can all enjoy.  I have been told by an egg oficiando (that will be Mr R)  that if  he were to eat this instead of his favourite eggy bready brunch extravaganza he might not need to eat eggs at all – this is high praise coming from a man who is known by all for his love of all things egg.



Ingredients – Makes 2

2 small or 1 large leek thinly sliced

1 medium to large onion finely diced

200 ml filtered water

140g gram flour

1 tspn baking powder

pinch each of dried basil, rosemary and thyme

sea salt and black pepper for seasoning

olive or coconut oil for frying



Heat a pan with a little olive oil and sweat the onion and leek until soft.  Mix together the rest of the dry ingredients in a bowl and then add the water a little at a time to form a batter.  Season well with salt and pepper.  Put the leek and onion mix into the batter and stir well.

Pour a generous glug of olive oil into a well heated frying pan (about 8 inches wide) then add half of the mixture.  Fry gently on both sides for a few minutes until your frittata is a deep golden brown colour.  I found using a fish slice super handy for helping to turn the frittata.

Serve hot with a mixed green baby leaf salad.

      Hi Jeri,

      I am really pleased that you like the look of this recipe. It has become a staple in our house. I have since experimented with different fillings, red bell peppers, spinach, mushrooms and a few combinations all of which turned out really well. I used onions for all of them and that really added a nice layer of flavour. Let me know what you make with yours and I hope you and your family enjoy them.

      I will definitely try and add a pin it button to recipes and I am delighted that you want to share them with others….real motivation. Thanks so much!
