Ingredients

8
1/2 tsp
1 tsp
41643
small red onion, diced
1/4 cup
finely diced red bell pepper
1/4 cup
thinly sliced asparagus
1 cup
packed baby spinach, chopped
1/4 cup
canned lentils, drained and rinsed
4 tsp
finely grated parmesan, optional

Instructions

  • WHISK eggs with salt in a medium bowl. Season with pepper.
  • HEAT a small non-stick frying pan over medium-high. Add oil, then onion, pepper and asparagus. Cook, stirring frequently, for 2 min. Add spinach and lentils. Cook until spinach wilts, about 1 min. Transfer to a bowl.
  • REDUCE heat to medium-low. Add 1/4 of egg mixture to same frying pan. Cook, unstirred, until edges are set, 2 to 3 min. Use a spatula to lift edge of omelette, pulling toward the centre and tilting pan to allow uncooked eggs to run underneath. Repeat until mixture is almost set and the bottom is golden brown, 2 to 4 min. Sprinkle 1/4 vegetable mixture overtop. Carefully slip a spatula under the eggs and flip the omelette. Cook until lightly golden, about 1 min. Slide omelette onto a plate and top with parmesan. Repeat with remaining eggs and vegetables. Serve immediately.

Lentils in an omelette? Their flavour and texture add dimension – and a hit of healthy folate to boot.

  1. 8 eggs is far too much for an omelette specially if you are single .I don’t want to eat it for the next 4 meals. How about some healthy recipes in smaller quantities?
    thanks
