Omelette Joy

I was visiting a good friend recently ( social distancing). I had dinner earlier in the day and thought that my delicious big salad would sustain me. Oh I was wrong on that day. Thankfully my kind friend quipped up a delicious Middle Eastern omelette in 15 minutes. The omelette was such a good idea! as such, I would like to share the recipe with you.

Cooking time:  Roughly 15 minutes. Serves 2


1 tsp butter

1 tbsp olive oil.

1/2 onion – chopped ( either red onion or white onion or a little bit of both) I had some left over red onion and white onion, which I used in this recipe.

1/2 tsp turmeric

1/2 tsp pepper

Pinch of salt

1 medium sized chopped tomato ( remove the pulp)

1 tbsp chopped parsley or coriander (whatever fresh herbs you have)

1 finely chopped green chilli. NB: dried red chilies can also be used in this recipe…

A slice of bread

Some left over avocado

3 tbsp of grated cheese. ( I used Gouda)

4 eggs

A leaf of lettuce

A slice of brown bread.

How to cook:

  1. Prep ingredients before hand.
  2. In a bowl, beat the eggs then blend in the chopped chilli, parsley and cheese.
  3. Heat up a non stick pan. Add the butter and oil to the pan.
  4. Add the chopped onions and chopped tomatoes into the pan. Cook on medium/slightly high heat. Add turmeric, salt and pepper and mix into the onions and tomatoes.
  5. Once the onions have become transparent, pout the egg mixture into the pan, covering the onions and tomatoes.
  6. Let it cook on medium/high heat – put a lid on top of the pan, if possible for roughly 5- 6 minutes.
  7. Once everything feels very firm, turn the omelette onto the other side and cook for about 4-5 minutes.
  8. After about 10-15 minutes the omelette should be ready to eat. Eat on a piece of bread with avocado and lettuce.

A recipe that allows you to use your left over ingredients to make something yummy in no time. I hope this recipe inspires you to have a omelette anytime of the day!
