Frtalja, also fritaja is a common Littoral but also central Slovenian spring omelette made of chopped spring shoots of all kinds mixed into eggs and fried.

In the Littoral fritaja is often composed of one sort of greens, such as wild asparagus, lemon balm or fennel, while other ingredients usually join them in more central parts of the country, including nettle shoots, yarrow, chard, spring onion or wild garlic (ramsons).

Preheat the pan, add some oil, spread the mixture across and cover.

If your frtalja is rather thin and you worry it might break while being flipped over, divide it into four parts, then turn each one separately.

The whole thing should be done in about ten minutes or so.

Serve with any other spring dish or eat just like that.

Dober tek!
