Serves 2

2 tbs Rapeseed oil

6 eggs, lightly whisked
185ml Natural yoghurt

1 tbs chopped flat leaf parsley
Salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Heat the oil in two frying pans over medium-low heat. Add the leek and cook, stirring, for 5-7 minutes or until soft. Set aside the leeks to cool slightly.
Combine the leek, egg, yoghurt, Gruyere, rocket and parsley in a bowl and season with the salt and pepper. Divide the mixture between the two prepared pans. Bake for 8-12 minutes or until just set.Turn onto a service plate and serve with a lightly dressed salad and warm crusty rolls.
