Spinach pesto and sundried tomato omelette is a delicious and easy to cook healthy meal choice. Packed with protein, it’s great for breakfast, lunch or even dinner!
This spinach pesto and sundried tomato omelette is perfect for those days you don’t have the time to think about what to put on the table!
In fact I believe that omelettes are one of those quick and versatile recipes that everyone should know.
Omelettes are remarkably cheap, they’re simple to make and they can be low calorie too.
I can’t believe that I’ve previously shared with you my baked cheese and tomato omelette, but not one done the traditional way in a pan!
Well let me rectify that today with this tasty pesto omelette.
This is the perfect omelette recipe when cooking for just yourself.
The recipe is easily adaptable and you can choose your own choice of fillings. The fillings I choose here are my favourite. Ones I first experienced in a cafe on a walking holiday.
To make this omelette recipe even easier, the pesto and sundried tomato fillings are all shop bought from jars. Although you could make the pesto if you wanted to using my own home made pesto recipe.
Eggs are an absolute staple in my diet. They’re good for you too, and amongst the healthiest and most nutritious foods known.
They’re packed full of vitamins and minerals like vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamin K, vitamin B6, calcium and zinc to name but a few.
If you can get pastured or omega-3 enriched eggs these are even better because they contain higher amounts of omega-3 fat.
Tips For Cooking This Spinach Pesto and Sundried Tomato Omelette
- Make sure your eggs are at room temperature.
- Before you start cooking prepare all your fillings and whisk your eggs in a bowl using a fork.
- Make sure you use a pan with sloping sides (like mine in the pictures above). It’s easier to move the egg mixture around by rolling the pan whilst its cooking. The omelette will also slide out more easily when cooked.
- Heat the pan slowly and gently over a medium heat. The eggs are better cooked slowly which will also ensure they are cooked throughout.
- Don’t over fill your omelette with fillings or it will tear and the fillings will fall apart when you fold the omelette in half.
