A little while ago I posted my Salmon Tart and I have had a few requests for a vegetarian version.
So, here is a my baked veggie omelette – you’ll need a frying pan that can transfer from the stove top into an oven.
I tend to make tarts like these so I have them on hand work work lunches – delicious cold or warm . Or if you’re in a rush, grab a couple of slices out of the fridge and steam some extra greens – speedy and filling dinner!
- 8 medium eggs
- 1 large zucchini
- 12 swiss brown mushrooms, finely sliced
- 250g spinach
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
- salt and pepper to taste
- Optional: 50g grated tasty cheese
Heat the oil in the frying pan, then slice the zucchini into rounds and place into the frying pan.
Fry for 1 minutes until the first side is golden, then flip over the zucchini before adding in the mushrooms to the pan. Cook, stirring for another minute until the mushrooms start to soften. Then add the spinach to the pan.
Add in the salt, pepper and nutritional yeast and stir through to make sure the veggies are evenly coated.
Whisk together the eggs and then pour evenly over the veggies.
Turn the frying pan to a gentle heat and allow to cook until the side of the omelette just start to pull away from the sides of the pan – the top of the omelette will still be very wet at this point.
Sprinkle the top with cheese if you wish before popping it in a pre-heated 180C oven for about 10 minutes or until the top just stops wobbling … Remember that the eggs will keep cooking while it is warm so if you leave it in the oven for too long you’ll get a rubbery omelette.
Let it cool and then slice into 6.
Store it in the fridge for about 3 days.
If macros are important to you here are the details (which includes the cheese) for 1 slice, which is 1/6th of the omelette:
