How to prepare the Greek frittata
Wash the cherry tomatoes and cut them into wedges (1). Squeeze them slightly to remove some water. Cut the black olives into slices. Cut the feta cheese into not too large cubes and dry it with absorbent paper (2).
In a bowl beat the eggs, season with salt and pepper (3). Add the grated Parmesan cheese and mix well. Chop a few basil leaves and add it to the mixture. Add the cherry tomatoes, the sliced black olives and the feta cubes.
Heat a lightly greased non-stick pan, pour the mixture and cook over a high flame for a few moments. Lower the heat and cook for ten minutes with the lid on.
Turn the omelette with the help of a flat plate or a serving tray. Cook for another five minutes, then cut into wedges and serve.
You can preserve the Greek frittata for a maximum of a couple of days in the refrigerator, tightly closed in an airtight container. Freezing is not recommended.
