    Derf's Note:

    The herbs and nuts add wonderful texture and taste to this omelet. We served in bite sized pieces as an appetizer. Can also sprinkle parmesan cheese over before putting under broiler to finish. From Cooking for Diabetics. Makes 8 meal size portions or 30 bite-size appetizers.

      Choose your recipe at 6:30 AM and have it on the table by 7, I just love having Zaar at my fingertips! I made a 6 serving version of the omelet, everyone loved it, especially my youngest, whose favorite color is green, and this makes a really green omelet! I know my picky kids, so I left out the mint altogether, and used ground nuts, which gave a wonderful texture to the eggs. There was just enough left over for me to put in a pita to take to the office today for lunch. Thanks for a new slant on breakfast, Dorothy!

      Yummy although I left out quite a few ingredients. I needed to use up lots of herbs so this was perfect. I used cold pressed extra virgin olive oil, regular white onion as I didn't have any leeks, no spinach, the scallions, flat leaf parsley, extra cilantro, no tarragon (forgot), no chives, fresh dill, extra fresh mint, only Chinese pine nuts, sea salt & freshly ground 4 pepper mixture that came in my pepper mill. I think this would be yummy cold as an appetizer as my mother used to do.
