An Omelette: Not Just for Breakfast Anymore!

I've officially left my hiatus away from cooking. :) My new job was taking up most of my time and... frankly I was running out of ideas for new recipes! I decided to post an Omelette recipe because it's one of the easiest meals to make. It's yummy and healthy, especially for those of you who are trying to cut back on starch and increase your protein intake.

3 Organic Cage-Free Eggs
Handful of Chopped Cilantro
1/4 of an Onion, sliced
1/4 of a Tomato, sliced
Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to Taste

1/4 of Julienned Zucchini
Shredded Swiss Cheese

Start off by chopping and slicing all of your vegetables and cilantro. Crack all 3 eggs into a bowl and mix well with a fork. Place a layer of Olive Oil in a non-stick pan. Once heated pour the egg mixture into the pan. Let the eggs cook until yellow-ish. Crumble shredded cheese (optional) onto egg. Next sprinkle handful of onion, tomato, zucchini and cilantro. It's like making a pizza! Add dashes of salt and pepper to taste.

Let the egg cook some more. Once the pan-side of the egg turns brownish... carefully fold the egg in half with a spatula. Make sure the pan is oiled enough, otherwise the egg layer will break. Cook a little more if you like the eggs well done. Top off with cilantro when serving.

You can make a million variations of omelettes using different ingredients. Try it with spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes and mozzarella! Or asparagus, mushrooms, and some feta! It's yummy and super easy!
