About this recipe

An omelette is a great way to include eggs in your diet! 


Ingredients

For the omelette

  • 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil 
  • 1 scallion, diced
  • 1 small red pepper, deseeded and diced
  • 6 button mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 30g / 1oz. of low-fat cheese, grated
  • 1 serving of spinach (90g / 3oz.), roughly chopped 
  • ½ tomato, sliced
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 1 slice of wholemeal bread, toasted
  • 1 teaspoon of low-fat spread

Method

  1. Heat the oil over a medium heat in a small non-stick pan and when hot, tilt to coat the bottom.
  2. Add the scallion, pepper and mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes until the vegetables begin to soften.
  3. Crack the eggs in a bowl and combine with the grated cheese, spinach, tomato and a little black pepper to taste.
  4. When the vegetables in the pan are ready, add to the egg mixture, mix well and return to the pan.
  5. Cook the omelette for 2-3 minutes, until the edges cook and come away from the edge of the pan, the mixture should be firm. If you do not want to flip the omelette, preheat your grill.
  6. To finish your omelette, either finish under the grill for another minute, or flip in the pan and leave to cook for the same amount of time.
  7. As you finish cooking your omelette, toast the bread to have ready to enjoy together.
  8. Finish your breakfast with a tasty satsuma.
