Wakame Omelet

READY IN: 26mins
Recipe by dcwang wang

DRied wakame can puff so much! We have a lot of wakame right now at home. On the package it said that it can also be added to pan-fry eggs, so I used two egg yolks that I had leftover from making cake. An oriental style breakfast!

I added to the recipe. I sauteed onions, carrots, spinach with olive oil and added a little crushed red pepper. I cooked until tender, then through some fresh basil and then the eggs and dried wakame. I think the wakamee has to be dry or it will be too soggy. But it was absulutely delicous! The saltyness of the wakame was balanced by the sweetness of the carrot and onion. And with a little hint of spice, I want another plate!
