green goddess omelette
Recharge with a Green Goddess Omelette - filled with phytochemicals and omega-6 fatty acids.
A recipe to make you feel incredibly virtuous! Packed with nutrients, particularly from the avocado and the alfalfa sprouts, this makes a fantastic start to your day – or a deliciously nutritious lunch or light supper. Fresh alfalfa sprouts can be difficult to get, so you could make your own. You can buy special seed sprouters, but a jam jar will do just as well. Simply take a small handful of seeds, wash them and place in the jar. Fill the jar with about three times the amount of water and soak for at least eight hours. Drain and rinse the seeds and leave in a warm, dark place. Rinse thoroughly every 12 hours for three days, then bring them out into sunlight and repeat the process for another two days until they're ready to eat.preparation time
5 minutes cooking time
5-6 minutes serves
2 large organic eggs
2 tsp dairy-free margarine
1 tbsp chopped mint leaves1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves½ ripe avocado, peeled, stoned and mashed25g alfalfa sproutssea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 Beat the eggs in a bowl, then season lightly with salt and pepper. Heat the margarine in a 20cm heavy-based frying pan, making sure the base is well covered in the hot fat. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and sprinkle over half the chopped mint and coriander. As the egg begins to set, keep lifting the edges gently and tilting the pan to let the uncooked egg trickle underneath. After 5–6 minutes the base of the omelette will be golden and the top almost set, but still soft.
2 When the omelette is just set, spoon the avocado on top, covering the omelette and sprinkle the alfalfa sprouts over the top. Tilt the pan away from you and, using a spatula, carefully fold it in half. Serve immediately.related ingredients: olive oil margarine
