You're faced with a fridge full of odds and ends versus a frozen pizza and Cheetos when you get home. You're starved, and you're REALLY trying to be healthy; QUICK! WHAT DO YOU DO??

Omelette! I made this one for, if my calculations are correct (which they are), what amounts to just under $1.50.


Step 1: Slice miscellaneous vegetables. I used mushrooms, a lil corner of an onion, jarred roasted red peppers, and about a fourth of a jalapeño, and goat cheese.

Step 2: With a drizzle of oil or a pat of butter, start by sauté-ing the veggies that you want cooked the most thoroughly. This could mean that you like burnt mushrooms, this could also mean that you don't like raw onions. Use common sense.

Step 3: Add additional veggies, stuff that won't take long to cook; like spinach, scallions, roasted peppers, or anything cut very small.

Step 4: Crack two or three eggs (how hungry are you?) into a bowl and whip it up with a fork. To this mixture you may add a splash of water, cream, or milk, if you choose. Personally, I don't find it to make much of a difference.

Step 5: Pour the whipped eggs over your sautéed veggies. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Step 6: Use your spatula to nudge the edges of the omelette inward while tilting your pan around. You're doing this to make room for the uncooked bits to move to the outside, where they can get some one-on-one with the hot pan.

Step 7: CHEESE! Sorry if you're a vegan, skip this step :(

Step 8: This is what separates the women from the girls. The flip that either turns out beautifully or ends as something you can proudly call "a scramble".

Serve with whole grain toast, a side of sautéed kale, or a balsamic, roasted sweet potato hash with cranberries ;) as featured above.
