- 1 onion
- 1 red pepper
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1/2 tsp chilli flakes
- 4 eggs
- 20 g goats cheese
- 20 g greek yogurt
- 2 sprigs of coriander
- 1 tsp cumin
Cook The Filling
Peel and thinly slice the onion. Deseed and thinly slice the pepper.
Put a frying pan over a high heat and add the butter. Melt until it’s foaming and add in all of the spices. Stir everything to combine.
Add the onion and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes over a high heat until soft. If you add a pinch of sugar then it speeds up process of them sweetening.
Cook The Eggs
Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk to combine, then pour them into the pan.
Tilt the pan to spread the egg evenly and leave for a minute to set.
Now go around the pan, pulling the edges of the omelette into the middle and filling in the gaps with uncooked egg.
Finish The Cooking
Continue (turning the heat down if the omelette is colouring too much) until there is only a very thin layer of uncooked egg on the top of the omelette.
Deseed and dice the tomato and spoon most of it in a line across the middle of the omelette, saving a little extra for garnish.
Crumble the goats cheese over the diced tomato.
Plate Up And Serve
Fold the omelette in half, over the fillings. Take the pan off the heat but leave the omelette for a minute to cook the inside.
Turn it out onto a plate and add a dollop of yogurt on the top. Scatter over the extra tomato, a sprinkle of smoked paprika and a few leaves of parsley.
