White Dead Nettle Frittata

White Dead Nettle (Lamium album) is at its best at the moment down here in Devon. It has a wonderful scented flavour and is less ‘hairy’ than Stinging Nettle (Urtica dioica) when cooked.

I had some left over roast potatoes, so the other day I whipped up this Frittata recipe. I’m not usually a fan of heavy food like this, but for a quick lunch it turned out perfect. The White Dead Nettle adds great texture and colour.
