    Sue Lau's Note:

    This omelet is cooked open-faced, like a frittata. The flavors are brunch-friendly, and could even make a nice light dinner, served with some fresh flatbreads and herbs from your garden.

      Pretty good taste. It has a different texture than we are used to that wasn't liked much though. I used extra virgin olive oil to be healthier, sea salt, allspice to taste in place of nutmeg because we do not consume intoxicants, plus the rest of the ingredients. Made for WELCOME TO EGYPT!

      There was some baby spinach in the fridge that needed to be used up so I decided to make this omelet for brunch. I cut the recipe down to use only 2 eggs. I think I used too many chickpeas but since I love chickpeas that's ok. Thanks for a healthy and filling brunch. Made for ZWT6 Ssassy's
