  • 120 grams kale, trimmed and coarsely torn 
  • 100 grams mozzarella, torn
  • 1 tsp. grated lime zest
  • 2 baby marrows, thinly sliced

Green sauce:

  • 2 green chillies, seeds removed and chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. pumpkin seeds</span
  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 2½ Tbsp. olive oil


PREHEAT oven to 180°C. Grease a deep 1.5-litre round ovenproof dish. Line an oven tray with baking paper.

DRIZZLE oil over kale and massage to coat. Spread half the kale over the tray. Combine half the mozzarella, remaining kale and the remaining ingredients together in a bowl. Season and mix. Transfer mixture to the greased dish and top with remaining mozzarella.

BAKE frittata for 1 hour or until set. Remove and set aside. Bake remaining kale for 5 minutes or until crisp.
