    1 medium-sized potato, skin on, thinly sliced
    2 cups (500 mL) broccoli florets, chopped
    2 cups (500 mL) baby spinach
    10 eggs
    1 tsp (5 mL) dried oregano leaves
    Sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
    1 tsp (5 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
    1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
    1/3 cup (80 mL) feta cheese, crumbled

    Place potato in large, nonstick frying pan with an ovenproof handle and cover with water. Bring to a boil, then simmer until tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Add broccoli and cook until bright green and tender-crisp, about 2 minutes.

    Place spinach in a colander. Drain potatoes and broccoli in colander.

    Preheat broiler. Whisk eggs with oregano and season with salt and pepper.

    Heat oil in frying pan and set over medium-high heat. Add onion and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Pour in eggs and add potato, broccoli, and spinach. Using a spatula, stir a few times to evenly distribute vegetables. Cook, without stirring, until eggs are well set around edges, about 2 minutes.

    Sprinkle with cheese; broil until eggs are set and cheese melts and starts to brown, 4 to 6 minutes.

    Cut into wedges and serve.

    Mussels with Tomato, Saffron, and Fennel

    B12-rich mussels are a very good and economical source of protein and iron. Steamed mussels are a classic way to enjoy seafood—and so is this rich, aromatic broth of tomato, fennel, and saffron. Be sure to allow saffron to fully infuse to get the full flavour benefit, and finish off the dish with the fragrant fennel fronds. Sustainability status Farmed mussels are considered highly sustainable due to their low impacts on the environment. They are easy to harvest, require no fertilizer or fresh water, and don’t need to be fed externally, as they get all their nutritional requirements from their marine environment. Mussel prep Selection: Look for mussels with shiny, tightly closed shells that smell of the sea. If shells are slightly open, give them a tap. Live mussels will close immediately. Storage: Keep mussels in the fridge in a shallow pan laid on top of ice. Keep them out of water and cover with a damp cloth. Ideally, consume on the day you buy them, but within two days. They need to breathe, so never keep them in a sealed plastic bag. Cleanup: In addition to being sustainable, farmed mussels tend to require less cleaning than wild mussels. Most of the fibrous “beards” that mussels use to grip solid surfaces will have been removed before sale. But if a few remain, they’re easily dispatched: grasp the beard with your thumb and forefinger and pull it toward the hinge of the mussel and give it a tug. Afterward, give mussels a quick rinse and scrub away any areas of mud or seaweed, which, with farmed mussels, will require minimal work.
