Kuku is a traditional Iranian egg dish made with more greens than a frittata. Serve warm or at room temperature.
1 | Preheat oven to 400°F.
2 | Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add squash, and season with salt and pepper, if desired. Cook 4 minutes, or until squash starts to soften, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium, add leek, and cook 4 minutes more.
3 | Working in batches, add kale and spinach to skillet; cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until leaves are wilted, stirring frequently.
4 | Meanwhile, whisk eggs with lemon zest, and season with salt and pepper, if desired. Pour over wilted greens in skillet, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 2 minutes, or until eggs begin to set on bottom, shifting vegetables around with spatula to distribute evenly.
5 | Sprinkle kuku with feta, and transfer to oven. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until eggs are just cooked through and fully set, 8 to 10 minutes. Slide kuku onto platter; cool about 10 minutes. Cut into small squares, sprinkle with cilantro, and serve.
