Vegetable omelets makes a great healthy, simple and inexpensive meal. To make omelets on a budget buy veggies on sale. Even cauliflower is good inside an omelet. To make things easy bake your vegetables in advance and store them in the fridge.
What you need
vegetables (asparagus, leeks, broccoli, red peppers, cauliflower, onions)
salt and pepper
butter for the pan
Cut up your raw vegetables, drizzle them with copious amounts of olive oil and add salt and pepper. Stir everything so that the veggies are coated with oil.
Now, bake uncovered for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees. After 20 minutes stir the veggies and decide if you want to cook them longer or not. Cook until the texture is right for you.
Make the omelet. Whisk together your eggs and pour them into a buttered pan. Add your vegetables and some cheese if you’d like. Add fresh herbs if you’re feeling gourmetish.
Cook and fold the edges over to make an omelet. If the ‘folding’ doesn’t go well, your omelet is now a scramble which is still tasty.
Although omelets are often eaten for breakfast, I love omelets anytime – breakfast, lunch or dinner. Keep it simple – vegetables and protein. To make this meal on the cheap, buy fresh vegetables and eggs on sale. Also use leftover vegetables whenever you have some. Enjoy!
