Instructions

  1. Heat Flora pro-activ in a 22cm non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add leeks and cook for 5 minutes or until soft, stirring occasionally. Stir in the asparagus stems and cook for 3 minutes and then stir in the asparagus tips and cook for 2 minutes.
  2. Lightly beat eggs, set aside.
  3. Blend the flour with 1 tsp water and enough egg to make a runny paste. Pour the remaining egg into a separate bowl and add in the flour paste. Add the basil to the mixture, stir and pour into the pan, stirring gently to cover the leek and asparagus. When the mixture is almost set, reduce the heat and cover pan with a lid or foil and cook for 2-3 minutes until set.
  4. To serve, cut into triangles with the salad leaves tossed in Balsamic dressing.
