Omelette with spinach & olives

P

acked with lots of zinc and iron, this omelette is the perfect healthy lunch of quick and easy mid week supper. Enjoy a little taste of the Mediterranean in a flash.

Ingredients

2 eggs, beaten
2 handfuls baby spinach or baby kale or a mixture of both
1 tablespoonful organic feta cheese, crumbled
4 olives, sliced
pure or light olive oil (for cooking)
extra-virgin olive oil (for drizzling)
ground chilli pepper (optional)
freshly-ground black pepper

Method

Wash the spinach and wilt it in a small non-stick frying pan for a minute, then add it to the beaten egg.

Put half a tablespoon of light olive oil in the pan and heat. Add the egg and spinach mixture, then sprinkle the olives and cheese on top. Cook for a minute on medium heat (enough so it can lift off the pan), then place the frying pan under the grill for another minute or two or until the top is cooked. Alternatively you can put a lid on top and cook the top that way.

Drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil and season with black pepper and chilli to taste.
