I just love omelettes, one of my favourite quick and healthy meals, breakfast, lunch or dinner its one of those versatile foods and always staple ingredients in your cupboard. You can pretty much put anything in an omelette and it’ll taste great.
This is one of my favourites:-
6 cherry tomatoes – halved
handful of spinach
1 mushroom sliced
Salt & pepper to taste
- Lightly oil frying pan
- Add in tomatoes, mushroom and spinach, cook for a minute
- Whisk up eggs with seasoning and pour over, cook on medium heat for about 4-5 mins or until bubbling, turn and cook for 1 min more.
- Serve. Yummy!
Here are my other favourites:-
Tomato and avocado
Ham & mushroom
Cheese & Ham
Spinach and bacon
Haggis and tomato
Spring onion & Feta cheese
Avocado and mushroom
Sundried tomato and Chorizo
This is so yummy and goes with just about anything I think.
Makes 4 servings
Handful of cherry tomatoes – halved
1 onion – chopped finely
1 clove Garlic
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp tomato paste
Salt & pepper
- Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan – high heat, add the onion and the pancetta, cook until onion is softened down
- Add in the cherry tomatoes, garlic, tomato paste, salt & pepper and sugar, mix through, cook for about 5-7 mins. Any liquid should thicken.
Well…I have to say when I read about this I was a bit uncertain, but as per usual my curiosity got the better of me…….well what can I say…..it just went and worked didn’t it! A perfect folded omelette! Here goes:-
2 small to medium Eggs (if using large you may need to increase cooking time.)
1 Ziplock Bag – good one (cheap one might leak)
1 chopped mushroom
1 sliced small tomato
Handful of grated cheese
Salt & Pepper to taste
- Spray inside the bag with oil to prevent from sticking.
- Crack the eggs in….no need to whisk up.
- Add in your ingredients…..of course you can add anything you like, I made it simple yet tasty.
- Gently rub with your hands to coat all round and break the yolks. Remove any air from the bag gently and seal.
- Bring a large pan of water to the boil and place bag in and boil rapidly for 8 minutes. Then reduce to a simmer for about 2-3 minutes.
- Gently remove and open bag, roll onto a plate and serve…….oh WOW!

I always found rice cakes bland but have found some good combinations that taste yummy and very healthy.
( each cake 60 calories)
1 x packet of rice cakes
tablespoon of extra light philadelphia spread on each cake
sliced tomato for topping
pinch of basil for dressing tomato (fresh or dried)
I also use peanut butter, 1 tablespoon per rice cake, then top with sliced banana.
125g Strong White Bread Flour
125g Strong Wholemeal Flour
1 sachet of yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoon of tomato puree
1 tablespoon of paprika
150ml warm water
2 tablespoon olive oil
Mix sugar and yeast in warm water and leave in a warm place for 10-15 mins to help yeast rise
Sieve all Flour into a bowl and mix in salt and paprika
Make a well in the middle then add in tomato purée, oil and yeast mixture
fold in well until it forms a dough, remove onto floured surface and knead for approx 5 mins
put into floured bread tin or tray and place in oven (shelf 2) on proving setting for Approx 1.5/2hrs or until double in size
brush with milk on top and switch oven onto Bread setting
place tray with ice cubes on level 5 and bread on level 2 (ice stops the bread from over crusting)
You could add in sundried tomatoes as an extra…..this is tasty also.
