Notes

• You can use any combination of leftover veges in this frittata. If you prefer, use rocket, silverbeet or spinach instead of kale. • This is delicious served with crusty bread, a mixed-leaf salad and some tomato salsa on the side. For a meat-lovers' version, add a little leftover ham with the vegetables in step 3.
