Don't forget the humble Omelette - protein, fat and vegetables what more do you need? If I am working from home I often have a vegetable Omelette for Lunch or a lazy dinner - so quick & easy! It never fails to amaze me how different ingredients can make a completely different tasting omelette... so be creative and try using different vegetables, herbs and cheeses or try a dairy free option.
Salt & Pepper
Chopped red capsicum
Chopped red onion
Chopped coriander or other herbs
Chopped snow peas
Ash Goat cheese or other cheese
Heat a small pan with some butter, whisk together eggs with salt & pepper then pour into pan, add chopped vegetables, cheese & coriander. Cook bottom and then fold to melt cheese and further cook vegetables. You can add nut milk or dairy milk to the eggs whilst beating but I find the Omelette holds together nicely without extra liquid. Serve with a green salad.
