We all know those days that are so busy we don’t even have time to think let alone plan and stand cooking a really complex meal for dinner. After I’ve been to work, seen friends and trained at the gym, some days I’m tempted to pick anything off the supermarket shelf in the form of a quick microwavable meal. But most ready meals are high in saturated fats, bad for your health and are really unsustainable in the way they’re made.
Try to make other alternatives that are still quick but a lot more healthy. Recently I’ve fallen in love with omelettes! They’re so easy to make, you can put anything in them and they’re really tasty.
Here’s the recipe for one I made yesterday…
Prep Time: 2 mins
Cooking Time: 10 mins
Serving Size: One person.
- 3 free range eggs
- 1/2 avocado (diced)
- A handful of broccoli
- Half a packet of smoked salmon
- Handful of spinach
- slice of butter
- splash of milk
- Pinch of salt
- Pinch of pepper
Other ideas: tomatoes, mushrooms, peppers, chicken, tuna, sweetcorn or anything you fancy that’s left over in the back of your fridge!
Top Tip: To make it even more sustainable you can choose to add vegetables that are in season in the UK at the moment. In June asparagus, carrots, spinach, courgettes and tomatoes are all in season – sounds like a yummy omelette.
- Crack the eggs into a bowl and mix with salt, pepper, milk and butter.
- Heat oil on frying pan and pour in mixture.
- When the egg begins to cook on the bottom, add the avocado, broccoli, and spinach.
- Flip the omelette using a spatula until both sides are cooked.
- Top with smoked salmon.
- And you’re done. Get stuck into your nutritious omelette and enjoy!
