Spinach, Pepper, and Onion Omelet Recipe


Omelets are perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. They are totally versatile and customizable to your flavor preferences. They can include any variety of meat--ham, sausage, bacon--or vegetables--peppers, onions, spinach. I love this about omelets. 

This particular omelet is most certainly nutritious--loaded with protein and filled with fresh veggie nutrients. I omitted cheese and meat to keep calories low. 

Whether you're feeding your family or you're home alone, this is the perfect meal option. 

Spinach, Pepper, and Onion Omelet Recipe 
serves 1

2 large eggs
1 Tbsp milk
4 strips green pepper, chopped
2 Tbsp chopped red onion
1 cup fresh baby spinach, finely chopped 
1 garlic clove, minced

Heat a large skillet to medium heat. Spray with non-stick cooking spray. 

In a medium bowl, beat eggs until foamy. Beat in milk. Stir in vegetables and garlic. Check to be sure the pan is preheated by sprinkling with water. If the water sizzles, you're good to go. Pour the egg mixture into the pan, rocking the pan around to distribute eggs evenly. Cover with the skillet's lid or tin foil. Cook 3-5 minutes. Now, you have 2 options. Once the majority of the omelet is set, you can 1) flip the omelet over to finish cooking the other side or 2) lift an edge of the omelet and tilt the skillet to allow any remain liquid egg to run to the underside of the omelet. Cover with the lid or foil once again and cook until egg is no longer runny. Remove to your plate. Eat.
