Super Green Omelette
The ultimate healthy omelette recipe, this delicious option is packed with greens like avocado, spring onions and fresh coriander for a unique twist on a basic omelette.
- 4 free-range British Lion eggs
- 1 ripe avocado
- 2 spring onions
- ½ green chilli deseeded and chopped (or chilli sauce, to taste)
- zest and juice 1 lime
- 2 tbsp fresh coriander chopped, plus a little extra to garnish
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- a dash of rapseed oil
- 40 g baby leaf spinach chopped
Halve and stone the avocado then place the flesh in a bowl and mash with a fork. Finely chop the spring onion, separating the green from the white. Add the white part to the avocado with the chilli (or chilli sauce) lime zest and juice and coriander. Season to taste and set aside.
Beat the eggs with plenty of seasoning, stir in the spinach and green spring onion. Heat a non-stick frying pan and add the oil.
When hot, pour in half the egg mixture and cook over a high heat for 2 minutes. As the egg begins to set, use a spatula to push the set egg towards the centre of the pan until there is no more runny egg left. Cook for a further minute. Slip the omelette onto a plate and keep warm.
Repeat to make a second omelette in the same way. Divide the avocado mixture between the two omelettes then fold up to enclose the filling to serve. Sprinkle with more coriander if liked.
