This high-protein breakfast will help sustain your energy levels for hours. For extra fibre, serve the omelette with wholegrain toast. Add a green salad for a nutritious brunch or lunch.
1 tablespoon olive oil
8 eggs, lightly whisked
100 g baby spinach leaves, shredded
125 g reduced-fat fetta, crumbled
250 g red baby roma or cherry tomatoes, halved
freshly ground black pepper
Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a 26 cm non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Pour in one-quarter of the eggs and swirl to make an even layer.
Use a spatula to draw the egg into the centre of the pan from the side as it begins to set. After about 1 minute the egg will be set around the side and underneath but moist on top. Sprinkle with the spinach and fetta. Fold one-third of the omelette towards the centre, then fold over again to enclose the filling.
Slide the omelette onto a plate and serve immediately with the tomatoes, seasoned with freshly ground black pepper. Repeat to make three more omelettes.
Here's a great new way to scramble eggs – cooked in a double saucepan or in a bowl over simmering water, without any butter, then mixed with crème fraîche for a creamy result. With strips of smoked salmon and fresh dill, this is the ultimate luxury brunch dish.
Flakes of smoked trout, cream cheese and fresh dill combine to make a well–flavoured filling for this light spinach roll. It is much simpler to make than it looks – just make sure that the spinach is squeezed really dry before adding to the sauce base.
The hollows in hard–boiled egg halves make perfect containers for a tasty filling – here carrot and chive – and the eggs look attractive served on a bed of ribbon vegetables and lamb's lettuce. All you need is some bread to make a satisfying lunch.
For these delectable chilli–flavoured omelettes, the eggs are whisked with cornflour to give them a slightly firmer texture, suitable for folding round a colourful and tasty filling of stir–fried vegetables and rice noodles.
