Healthy breakfast with green omelette (Vegetarian, GF)

You like eggs for breakfast, but not the boring boiled or fried version?

Are you like me, who love to savour the creamy texture of an omelette?

You want to add more greens to your every meal? Without spending too much time in the kitchen?

Then look no further than this lustrous green omelette! Not only is it super tasty but also packed with protein, vitamins A, vitamin C, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory compounds, and various essential minerals. As most ingredients are often already in your fridge, this can be whipped up within 10-15 mins on a weekday.

The first time, I went for only 4 eggs so the texture was more crepe-like. Second time with 6 and it was simply PERFECT!!!!

For garnishing, throw in anything you like or have ready in the fridge.

No spinach? Use rucola! No pine nuts? use pistachio or cashew! Lactose intolerance? Use some vegan cheese to make it completely dairy-free

If you’re a big eater or a #sportfanatic, we can easily pump up the protein content with some pan-seared salmon or left-over chicken

ENJOY!!!
