Omelette

Suitable for vegetarians


Busy lifestyles mean we don’t always have time to cook from scratch. Omelettes are a very quick meal to make and are very healthy, especially if you take care to include lots of vegetables.


Ingredients - Serves 1 Adult

  • 2 medium eggs
  • 3 teaspoons of water
  • ½ teaspoon of dried herbs
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • Black pepper to taste

Method

  1. Beat the eggs, water, pepper and herbs together. If you do this in a jug it makes it easier to pour into the pan
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan, and add the egg mixture
  3. Spread the mixture around the pan and cook until the eggs are set and come away from the edge of the pan, the mixture should be firm
  4. Turn the omelette carefully to cook on the other side

Serving Suggestions

Some tasty combinations are: chopped onion, cherry tomatoes and peas; or chopped onion and mushroom. You can also try adding meat, for example, ham or some leftover cooked chicken

info

To add some variety to your omelette, try gently cooking some vegetables in the pan before adding the egg mixture.
