Cherry tomato and herb heart-healthy omelette

RECIPE OVERVIEW

This is mainly an egg white omelette. You can make a regular one, including the egg yolks, but once you give this a try you‘ll see that it is just as good without them and much better for your heart. I add in one yolk just for colour. The herbs I normally use are chives, flat leaf parsley or mint.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 5 minutes

Ingredients

Serves: 1 person

  • 1 handfull Cheddar Cheese
    optional
  • 8 - Cherry Tomatoes
  • 4 large Fresh Egg
    1 whole and 3 white's
  • 1 handfull SuperValu Dried Mixed Herbs
    chopped
  • 0 - SuperValu Olive Oil
  • 0 - SuperValu Salt

Method

  1. Halve or quarter the cherry tomatoes, pour some olive oil into a non-stick grill proof pan and tip the cut tomatoes in. Season them well and fry them off for 1-2 minutes until just soft.
  2. In the meantime put a grill onto high heat and lightly beat the eggs in a bowl. Scatter the chopped herbs over the tomatoes and pour the beaten eggs over.
  3. Quickly stir the eggs with a silicon spatula to even them out and make sure they cook evenly.
  4. Take off the heat as they start to set, grate a little cheese over the top (if using) and place under the grill for about 2-3 minutes. Slide onto a warm plate and serve immediately.
