So many cultures have their own versions of this egg-based savoury dish. The Spanish have tortilla, the Arabs have eggah, and in Iran similar baked omelettes are known as kuku. In any language, it’s delicious.

What to do

Remember to put a damp tea towel under your chopping board to stop it from slipping.
    1. Prepare all of the ingredients based on the instructions in the ingredients list.

    2. Preheat the grill to high.

    3. Brush the griddle pan with olive oil and heat over a medium heat.

    4. Using the tongs, place the asparagus across the griddle lines and cook, turning regularly, until the asparagus is lightly browned. Remove from the heat and set aside.

    5. Break the eggs into the large bowl, add the feta and cream, then whisk briefly until combined. Season with the salt and pepper.

    6. Heat the two frying pans over a medium heat. Add a small amount of olive oil to each frying pan, then add half of the onion to each pan. Lightly sauté the onion until it becomes translucent, about 5 minutes.

    7. Pour half of the egg mixture into each pan and let it cook for a few minutes.

    8. Place half of the asparagus in each pan, gently placing the stalks in the egg mixture like rows of soldiers.
