Whose ready for another delicious breakfast recipe? I’ve really been on a breakfast kick lately, haven’t I? It’s really kind of ironic; I never used to care about breakfast, but, ever since I embarked on my journey to a healthier lifestyle, it has become the most important meal of the day. Did you know that you can have your highest-calorie meal at breakfast? This is because your metabolism levels are higher in the morning. Plus, if you eat a good breakfast, you won’t be as hungry later in the day! This Spinach Parmesan Omelette is delicious, nutritious, and full of essential vitamins and proteins! Not only that, but you only need four ingredients for this scrumptious meal! I first created this recipe as a low-sodium meal for El Gastronomo, however, it has become a favorite around here as of late. This recipe of Delicious Food 101 features The Chef, El Gastronomo, and Queenbee.
The Chef: “Queenbee, your thoughts on this dish?” Queenbee: “Mmm, this is really good, El Gastronomo is gonna like it.”
The Chef: “El Gastronomo, what do you think of this new creation?” El Gastronomo: “It’s very good, I especially like the addition of spinach.” The Chef: “I thought you might.”
The Ingredients: 2 large brown eggs, 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup baby spinach, 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil.
In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs until they are bright yellow in color. Set aside. In a small pan over medium heat, add half of the olive oil, saute the spinach for one minute. Set aside. In the same pan over medium heat, add the remainder of the olive oil. Add the eggs. Using a spatula, scrape the edges of the pan in a circular motion to prevent sticking. When one side of the egg patty is cooked, carefully lay the sauteed spinach down the middle. Fold the egg patty in half and flip the omelette over to cook on the other side for one minute. Remove the omelette from the pan and top with the Parmesan cheese. Serve while warm. Serves one.
Total calories: 350 calories for one omelette with 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese.
