Green Omelette

"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."

Ready In:




  • 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.

  1. I LOVED this omelette! The pine nuts gave it the most wonderful crunch to this dish. I made just one serving of this using three eggs. Very good recipe I plan on making much more!
  2. I sauteed the shallots in 1 tablespoon butter. Used a red bell pepper which I favor and gave a pretty look. Made 1/2 the recipe making 1 large omelet. The pine nuts would be good toasted first to release the oils and for extra flavor. I did season with a seasoned salt mixture. Which it did need. Thanks for the good eats!
  3. 4 stars. I love the amount of (green) veggies in this omelette, especially the broccoli! Since I had a small or extra large frying pan to work with I halved the servings to 1 1/2 eggs at a time, which worked nicely in the small frying pan. I had no trouble at all folding and flipping this omelette which was great. The gouda and shallots added good flavour. Reviewed for RSC #11.
  4. This is the most successful omelette I have ever made! :) (mine usually turn into scrambled eggs) I made this for dinner and got my family to eat a few more vegetables than they usually do. It was very tasty but could have used some salt. If I make this again I will definitely use more cheese since it was hard to get the flavor. we really liked the crunch that the pine nuts added. a very creative omelette and a tasty meal! thanks!
  5. 4 Stars... this was pretty good. It was missing some zip for me though. I think a great addition would be some green verde sauce on top. Yum! I like the fact that it has lots of good for you stuff!


I am an Israeli-Canadian who grew up in Montreal Quebec. I love to cook, especially for family and friends, and I love to experiment with recipes and try to do different variations of the same recipe. I did do part of cooking school, but found the place stressful and all the good recipes high in fat and calories, even the good ones. I don't have a fave cookbook, but I eat kosher. I have a dream and that is to own my own B&B one of these days. I also love creative writing, and maybe I like to try make up a recipe of my own and see if I'm good at doing that. I have to add that I do have some favourite chefs from the Food Network. They are Giada De Laurentis from Everyday Italian; Micheal Smith from Chef at Home; Jamie Oliver and everything he does; Anna Olson from Sugar; and Chef Gordon Ramsey from Hells' Kitchen and Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares. <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"width=100%> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> spring 08 <img src=""> <img src=""> fall 08 <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> spring 09 <img src=""> fall 09 <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""></a> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="">
