Fritaja s mladom koprivom (Fritaja with Young Nettles)

nettle-fritaja(English version below)
Mama moje najbolje prije poslala mi je sa sela koprive i domaća jaja. Planirala sam napraviti domaće tagliatelle od koprive, ali nisam našla toliko vremena. Nisam željela da mi kopriva propadne, pa sam se sjetila fritaje koja je gotova za 10-ak minuta , i uživala.

Fritaja is a Croatian dish made of scrambled eggs. Fritajas are especially common in the springtime, as at that time there are many plants and vegetables such as wild asparagus, young nettles, herbs, chicory, tomatoes, young garlic sprouts and spices available to add to egg.

My best friend’s mom sent me nettles and eggs from the country. I thought I would prepare homemade green pasta, but since I was in a hurry, I decided to make fritaja, a simple dish made in 10 minutes. And I enjoyed it!

Young Nettle Fritaja (serves 1)
1 tbspolive oil
1 stalkspring onion
few slicessausage
1 handfulyoung nettle leaves
2eggs
1/2 tspchili paste
salt, pepper to taste

Directions:
Remove the nettle leaves from the stems (discard the stems). Boil the water in a small pot and remove from the heat. Put the leaves in the water for one minute, and then drain. Put aside.

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in the frying pan and then saute sliced spring onion on low heat until soft and translucent. Add chopped sausage and boiled nettle leaves and saute for two minutes. Add eggs and chili paste and cook until eggs are done. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm.

  1. Odmah mi zazubice! Iako da se ne zalim – pojela sam hrpu fritaja ove godine sa sparogama.. S koprivom jos nisam nikad probala.Tako se upotrebljava samo dok je mlada? Super fotke :)!

    • Uh sad si me našla :) Ne znam, obično se na tržnicama pojavljuju u proljeće pa su relativno “mlade”. Mislim da se lišće može upotrebljavati i na starijoj biljci… Hvala :)
