- 1tbsp light olive oil

- You will need:
- 20cm round, solid-based sandwich tin, buttered and lined with baking parchment
Set the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4. Heat the oil in a frying pan then add the onion and sugar and cook over a medium heat for 5-7 mins, or until the onion has softened. Turn off the heat, add the spinach to the pan and stir until it starts to wilt. Spoon the vegetables into the lined tin.
Add the feta and olives and stir to mix up slightly. Season the beaten eggs well with salt and pepper and pour over the vegetables.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 mins, or until just set in the centre. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tin for a few mins, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Cut into wedges to serve.
