GARDEN PATCH OMELET
(from The Daniel Plan Cookbook – Healthy Cooking for Life)
Filled with protein and fiber, vegetable omelets are a satisfying meal day or night.
- 3 eggs
- ¼ teaspoon Kosher or sea salt (optional)
- Dash black pepper
- 2 teaspoons coconut oil, divided
- ¼ teaspoon minced garlic
- 1 cup baby spinach
- ¼ cup bell peppers (red, orange, yellow), diced
- ¼ cup red onion, diced
- ¼ cup tomato, diced
- 1 large mushroom, thinly sliced
In a bowl, whisk eggs with salt and pepper. Set aside. Heat 1 teaspoon coconut oil over medium-high heat in a saute or frying pan that has a lid. Add garlic, spinach, peppers, onion, tomato, and mushroom. Saute until veggies are soft, about 3−5 minutes. Remove vegetables from pan. Set aside in a bowl. Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon coconut oil in the pan. Pour the eggs in the pan evenly. Add in the veggies on top of the egg mixture, reduce heat to low, cover pan with lid. Cook for about 2 minutes. If the egg is still uncooked, cook for another minute uncovered. Fold the omelet in half. Serve right away.
