Kale (shredded)


In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add the chorizo and onions and cook, stirring frequently, until the chorizo is browned on the edges and the onions are tender. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute longer. Let the mixture cool a bit.

Heat the oven to 350°F/175°C.

In a bowl mix the milk, flour and the Spanish paprika Whisk in the eggs, salt, and a generous sprinkle of pepper. Combine with the chorizo, onions, kale mixture.

In the skillet, add the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and return it to medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the egg-kale mixture making sure that kale and chorizo are evenly distributed in the pan. Reduce the heat to low and cook until the eggs begin to set on the edges of the pan, about 8 minutes. Place skillet in the oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned on top.

Remove the pan from the oven and run a rubber spatula around the sides of the pan to loosen the frittata. Slip it out of the pan and onto a cutting board. Let the frittata cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting. Serve at room temperature with a green salad.
