I love omelettes. I have at-least one every day, sometimes two! I love both savoury and sweet ones. You name the fruit or vegetable and I could almost guarantee you that it could go in an omelette! Using a mixture of a full egg and egg whites, omelettes can be a nutritious high protein, low fat meal.
Below is a delicious berry omelette recipe that I make quite often, generally as a sweet afternoon snack or even a dessert! Depending on how hungry I am, I will sometimes cut it in half and have the omelette over two meals.
- Canola oil spray
- One whole egg
- 1/2 cup of egg whites (you can buy carton or frozen egg whites from your local supermarket. They have become a staple in my weekly shopping!)
- 1 tbsp of ground cinnamon
- 1.5 cups of your favourite kind of frozen berries (blueberries, raspberries, mixed berries etc)
- 2 tbsp of low fat natural yoghurt (I use Chobani yoghurt)
- 1/2 chopped banana (optional)
- 1 tbsp of honey
- 1 tbsp of flaxseed meal
- Place a large round pan on to hot stove top and grease the pan lightly with canola oil.
- Whisk egg and egg whites together using a whisk or a bullet machine (such as a ‘magic bullet’).
- Pour eggs in to pan and allow to cook for 2 minutes.
- While the eggs are cooking, defrost frozen berries in the microwave for approximately one minute.
- Sprinkle cinnamon on to egg mixture.
- Spoon berries on to egg mixture down the centre of the omelette.
- Flip one side of the omelette over the berries and then the other side so that the berries are folded in to the middle of the omelette.
- Turn stove top off and remove omelette from the pan using an egg flip at each end to lift out and place on to a nearby plate.
- Spread yoghurt over the top of the omelette then drizzle with honey and sprinkle with flaxseed meal.
Happy (healthy) eating!
