Fresh Mint, Chives and Roasted Walnut Frittata

My favorite variation of this yummy appetizer or light meal is made by my mother-in-law –  here is how she makes it:
Servings: 3-6
5 eggs
4 cups chopped fresh mint
6 cups chopped green onions or Chives
2/3 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1-1/2 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoon all purpose flour
freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup oil
  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. Put the chopped herbs in a colander with 1 tablespoon salt and leave for 30 minutes. Squeeze the herbs afterwards to remove excess water and salt
  3. Add all remaining ingredients except the oil and mix thoroughly.  Adjust seasoning to your taste
  4. Oil a baking sheet, cover with a parchment paper and then pour the remaining oil spreading it evenly
  5. Add the herb mixture and bake for 20 to 30 minutes until golden brown.
  6. Serve hot or cold with lavash bread and greek yogurt
