Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375°F, gas mark 5, 200°C (180°C fan-assisted).
  2. Line the base and sides of a 9inch/23cm loose spring-form cake tin with parchment paper.
  3. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a gentle heat add the rapeseed oil together with the leeks, sauté until soft and translucent, then add the curly kale and continue sautéing until the kale has wilted. Season with sea salt, cracked pepper and garlic granules, and cook for a further minute, then add the chopped dill. Mix together and then leave to cool.
  4. In a large mixing bowl add the eggs, beat well add the Dijon mustard and season lightly with sea salt and white pepper.
  5. Place the cooled sautéed leeks and kale in the base of the pre-lined tin, then pour over the egg mixture and top with the cubed feta.
  6. Place the cake tin over a wire rack above a tray (incase the egg mixture leaks out), bake in the pre-heated oven for 35-40 minutes.
  7. Whilst the frittata is in the oven, peel the asparagus spears from half way down, then boil with the fine green beans in water for 5 minutes, until al dente, then immediately run under cold water to stop the cooking process. Once cooled down, cut them into ½ inch pieces.
  8. To make the dressing, mix together the sesame seeds, rapeseed oil, agave nectar, white wine vinegar, black pepper and sea salt and pour over the vegetables.
  9. Remove and place on a wire rack to cool, release the side of the tin and serve room temperature or cold.
  10. Serve with the delicious spring greens.
