Herby Green Omelette

by Amelia Freer from Nourish & Glow: The 10-Day Plan

Enjoy a quick and healthy breakfast, brunch or lunch with Amelia Freer's omelette recipe, loaded with fresh herbs, spinach and peas.


This is a super-fast breakfast, filled with fresh herby greens. It will cook in about 3 minutes, so make sure you have all your ingredients chopped and ready before you heat the pan up. Try experimenting with different herbs too: coriander, chives, basil, rocket and even mint can also work well. Just choose whatever you have to hand, growing or is in season.

2 large eggs, preferably free-range of organic
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley and/or dill
1 tbsp coconut oil or light olive oil
2 spring onions, finely sliced
2 handfuls of spinach, roughly chopped
a handful of peas (if frozen, pour boiling water over them in a small bowl to thaw for 5 minutes, then drain)

In a small bowl, whisk the eggs with a pinch of salt, a grind of fresh black pepper and the chopped fresh herbs, either dill or parsley (or both).

Heat the coconut oil or olive oil in a wide frying pan over a medium heat, making sure the base of the pan is coated so your eggs don’t stick. Add the eggs and swirl again so you have a thin coating – it should bubble just slightly at the edges. Keep tilting the pan to distribute the egg evenly.

Sprinkle with the spring onions, spinach and peas, cook for about 2 minutes, until the egg is almost dry, then fold over just under half of the egg to cover the greens, leaving a smile of green showing. Cook for 1 minute more, then slide the omelette out of the pan and on to your plate.
