We all know that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. For today’s Foodie Friday, Coach Chanelle shows us how to make the perfect omelet for breakfast. It’s an easy and simple recipe that everybody can follow and enjoy!
Note: tb.sp = table spoon and t.sp = tea spoon
- Chop up in tiny cubes the following:
- 2 tb.sp yellow pepper
- 2 tb.sp roma plum tomato
- 2 tb.sp red onion
- 4 tb.sp mushroom
- hand full of baby spinach
*Chop in small pieces about 1/2 to a full clove of garlic depending on how much you love garlic!
In a bowl, crack 2 eggs and whisk in:
- 1 t.sp of dried basil
- 1 t.sp of dried thyme
- 1/4 t.sp of cinnamon
- 1/8 t.sp cumin
- Salt and pepper
Don’t be afraid to whisk the eggs for a good 30-60 sec. The more air you let in your eggs, the fluffier your omelet will be!
In a small skillet on medium heat, cook the red onions (sauté) and garlic with some butter until the onion begins to turn into a brown color. Afterwards, add the peppers, tomatoes, mushroom and let everything cook for 3-4 minutes, and then add the spinach. Spinach wilts fast, so as soon as it starts to soften mix it with your eggs.
At this point make sure the eggs are covering the vegetables completely and cover for a few minutes with the heat still at medium. After a few minutes, check your omelet and shake the skillet a little and observe the middle. If it’s still very liquid in the middle, cover the skillet back with the lid, but if it’s just giggling slightly, you may use your flipping skills or use a spatula to turn the omelet to cook the other side. By the way, make sure to scrape the sides of the omelet before flipping!
After about 30-60 seconds on the second side the egg is ready to be flipped back, and this is where you would sprinkle cheese if that is something you want. I suggest either good old fashion marble cheddar cheese or for something with a little more kick, go for feta! Fold your omelet in half and it’s ready to be served!
I choose to serve it with an all natural salsa, because it tastes really good! It’s so much better than ketchup that is full of added refined sugar, which we want to stay away at all costs!
You can’t go wrong with this healthy recipe whether you choose to have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You have everything that your body needs: protein, healthy fats, vegetables and none of those unhealthy carbohydrates that you can find in breakfast cereal, bagels, granola bars etc…
This is my own recipe so I really hope you enjoy it!
