One of the best tasting omelettes I know. It is also a great option for a low carbohydrate meal and for those going Paleo (especially good for when you miss a bit of pizza!). Toddlers who dislike raw tomatoes will welcome this option too. It’s quick and easy to prepare with 5 main ingredients – not bad for healthy fast food. This omelette serves one. If you want to double the ingredients, make sure you divide the mixture into two separate omelettes to avoid breakage.
- 2 tomatoes (chopped into small squares)
- 2 tbsp butter
- A little olive oil
- 2 eggs (beaten)
- 2 spring onions (thinly sliced including green parts)
- Cheddar cheese cut into small squares
- Oregano, sea salt and black pepper to taste
In a small saucepan, melt the butter and add the tomatoes and seasoning.
Cover with a lid and let it cook in slow heat until tomatoes have nearly turned into a paste. Keep an eye not to let them burn – if necessary, add 2 tbsp of water or stock. When cooked, add a little olive oil to the pan and then cover with the beaten eggs and the sliced spring onions without mixing in the pan. Sprinkle the cheddar squares on top and let the omelette cook for 2 to 4 minutes. Finish it under a hot grill – this way it won’t matter if your omelette turning skills are not that great. Once cheese is cooked on top (after 2 to 3 minutes), loosen the edges with a butter knife to make sure sides are not sticking to the pan and turn the omelette on to a plate. Serve with a side salad.
