This is a filling and easy midweek supper for two or a family of four – simply double up the ingredients to rustle up something quick and healthy in minutes.
4 eggs, beaten
200g mushrooms, peeled and thinly sliced
8 sun dried tomatoes, chopped
Handful of chopped spinach
1 tbsp of cooking oil
1/4 tsp Sumac powder
Salt and pepper
- Heat the cooking oil in a large frying pan.
- Put the sliced mushrooms in the frying pan and cook.
Dawn: I like mushrooms that are slightly caramelised so I cook mine until they start to look a little ‘charcoal grilled’ in appearance. It’s all down to personal preference so cook your mushrooms how you like to eat them.
Andrew: Can I use chestnut mushrooms?
Dawn: Yes Andrew any mushrooms really and again, it’s down to individual taste – or what’s in the fridge!
- Next, pour the beaten eggs over the mushrooms and atop this egg mixture with the chopped sun dried tomatoes.
Dawn: I’ve used the oil that the sun dried tomatoes have been marinated in and this adds an extra special zing to the dish.
Andrew: Or olive oil?
Dawn: Yes, or olive oil or sunflower oil.
- The egg mixture will begin to look more opaque in appearance as it starts to cook.
- Once the egg mixture is appearing a shiny, glistening opaque disk, sprinkle the torn spinach leaves over the top and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes.
Andrew: Spinach cooks rapidly and there’s also a lot of water content in it so you don’t need much cooking time to ensure it’s done.
- Next, place the frying pan under the grill to finish the cooking process.
- Once the omelette is lightly golden and ‘solid-looking’ in appearance, the omelette is cooked and ready to serve, seasoned with a smidge of salt and pepper.
Dawn: I find it impossible to flip an omelette so I resort to placing the frying pan under the grill to finish off the omelette.
Andrew: I won’t comment! Because I can flip! And on this flipping note, we’ll close and say please follow this food blog and our Twitter account at @Love_Food_UK: we have loads planned and more to share with you over the coming weeks.
Dawn: Oh, before I forget: dust the cooked omelette with sumac and hey, pesto! A great, tasty and super quick meal after a long day. See you soon!
