When I made this, the original title of the recipe was Eat Your Greens Omelette. I gave one serving to my taste tester and he took one look at it and said “This is a green egg!” This is how it got its official name. There is some work involved but it is worth it in the end. For sautéing the vegetables I used olive oil, but you can use any kind of oil you like.
- 9 eggs
- 1⁄2 cup frozen spinach, torn into bite sized pieces
- 1⁄3 cup pine nuts, roughly chopped
- 2⁄3 cup gouda cheese, shredded
- 1⁄4 cup shallot, finely diced
- 1⁄2 green pepper, diced
- 1⁄2 cup broccoli floret
- 3 tablespoons butter or 3 tablespoons margarine
Directions See How It's Made
- Sauté the shallots and spinach for about 5 minutes. Set aside in a small bowl and then sauté the green pepper and broccoli for 5 minutes. (I did it this way, because it was easier than doing one at a time.).
- In a small break 3 eggs and mix very well with a fork. Melt the butter or margarine in a frying pan, on medium high heat and then add the eggs.
- Very quickly add two tbsp spinach, some pine nuts (the amount is up to you depending on how much you or your loved ones like pine nuts), 2 tsp shallot, two tbsp green pepper, 2 tbsp broccoli. Sprinkle Gouda cheese over the egg and vegetables, and let set for about 3-4 minutes.
- Flip over half the omelette and continue to cook for another 2 minutes. Repeat two more times.
- Serve warm.
