Frittata (basically an Italian omelette) is a quick and easy dish to make, though you will probably struggle to obtain borage unless you grow it yourself.

You could probably substitute finely sliced cucumber for the borage, though I'm not certain there would be any point in that!

Not a huge fan of borage, but if you like cucumber I suppose it's fine.
