I make this green omelette for my kids regularly. They love the colour of it! The superhero name helps to sell it! For them I keep it simple and just roll it up as it is. For me and my husband, we like to add in some avocado, smoked salmon and pesto. I’m conscious of the carbon footprint of avocados so more and more I add cherry tomatoes (cut in half) and some grated cheddar cheese instead (kids like this!). This recipe is low in carbohydrate so feel free to have some brown bread on the side (especially if you’ve just been exercising or are about to exercise!). Or, handier again, place a wholegrain tortilla over the frying pan, place a plate on top and flip the pan. Now you’ll have the omelette perfectly inside your wholegrain wrap (adds about 3-4g of fibre to the meal too!).

Ingredients

  • Rapeseed oil for frying
  • Spinach – 2 handfuls
  • Eggs – 2
  • Smoked salmon – 2 slices
  • Pesto – 1 tbsp
  • Avocado – 1/4

How to make it

  • Place the eggs and the spinach into a blender and whizz.
  • Heat a pan and add a little rapeseed oil.
  • Fry the batter on one side. Once it looks drier, flip.
  • Place onto your plate and smear with pesto before adding the avocado and smoked salmon.
