    nyamyj's Note:

    This is mostly greens and very little egg. This recipes makes a lot extra so you can have greens kept in the freezer to pull out and add egg to make in a jiffy. Half a mixing bowl of greens will yield one Kuku omelette for 2 people or slice like pizza and serve for appetizers with pita bread.

    1. 1
      Clean and dry all the fresh herbs well.
    2. 2
      Chop up all the herbs (this recipe makes enough to freeze a lot of the herbs in a large tupperware for future use.
    3. 3
      In a medium size mixing bowl combine herbs - fill bowl almost halfway.
    4. 4
      Add a few shakes of each spice (be careful not to overdo the cumin. I go heavy on the coriander (both forms- ground and seeds).
    5. 5
      Gently mix in 2 eggs with the herbs.
    6. 6
      Add olive oil to the bottom of a large teflon frying pan (I also add some more spices to the oil).
    7. 7
      Put mixture of herbs and eggs (it looks very green and not very eggy at all) into the pan and flatten to an omelette shape. I like to make it very thin so it cooks very well throughout.
    8. 8
      Cook until brown and flip - I usually slide it onto a plate and then add a little more oil to the pan and flip the omelette from the plate to the pan to finish browning the other side.
    9. 9
      When browned slide Kuku onto a plate add some salt if preferred and serve with pita bread. Good with plain yogurt too. Healthy and delish! Enjoy! My friends love when I make this for them.

      Delicious especially with the coriander seeds. DD (toddler) and I ate this as a late night snack. Pretty nutritious I think. I used everything but leeks as I didn't have any. The dill I used was fresh and the spinach was baby spinach. I would make this again.
