Green Salad Omlette 

Recipes, Uncategorized

For this week’s blog post I decided to show you this greek salad omlette that I made for my family on Wednesday. It was a great choice for dinner as it is super hot right now and a light fluffy omlette is exactly what we needed on a summer day. This recipe is vegetarian and really easy to make. I made this recipe to feed 3 people so if you have to alter the amounts for more or less people then feel free to do so. If you want to know how to make this.. then keep reading.

Ingredients: 

  • 9 eggs (3 for each person) 
  • Handful of parsley leaves 
  • Olive oil 
  • 1 red onion 
  • 3 tomatoes 
  • Black or green olives 
  • 200g feta cheese 
  • Salt & pepper 
  • Wild rocket leaves 

    How to make it: 

    1Heat the frying pan with a dash of olive oil. In a bowl whisk the eggs, parsley, pepper and salt together. 

    2. Fry the chopped onion over a high heat for about 4 minutes until they start to brown around the edges. 

    3. Throw in the tomatoes and olives and cook for 1 or 2 minutes until the tomatoes begin to soften.

    4. Lower the heat to about medium and pour in the eggs. Stir as they begin to set until half cooked. 

    5. Scatter over the feta then fry until omlette is puffed up and golden. 

    The finished omlette should look something like this. I placed it on a bed of wild rocket leaves so that it was healthier and added to the salad element of this recipe. 

    I hope you enjoyed reading and I recommend trying this recipe at home for a dinner or a light lunch. Until next time…

    Healthy Avocado & Spinach Salad

    Recipes, Uncategorized

    Recently I’ve started to be more conscious of the food I snack on during the day. To make my meals healthier I decided to make fullfilling salads for dinner. So on this blog post I am going to show you how to make a simple salad that you don’t need fancy ingredients for (apart from one maybe) and can quickly make.

    What you’ll need: 

    • 250g spinach 
    • 3 tomatoes 
    • Half of a cucumber 
    • Olive oil
    • 1 avocado 
    • 250g cauliflower rice 
    • Variety of spices
    • Pumpkin seeds for finishing 

    To start off, cut your vegetables into small pieces. Whilst doing that place your spinach into a microwaveable container and add 2 tablespoons of water to steam the spinach.

    You spinach should look something like this: 

    Regarding the cauliflower rice you need to place it in the microwave with a pierced lid for around 4 minutes (800W microwave).

    During the time it takes for the cauliflower rice to cook, you can make the sauce. For this you will need 3 tbsp of olive oil, 3 tbsp of water, spices including coriander, parsley and basil. To top it off you can add salt and pepper; mix thoroughly. 

    Add everything to the bowl and drizzle the sauce on the top. You can add some pumpkin seeds to make the salad have some crunch and more flavour. Mix till everything is coated with the sauce.

    Your finished salad should now look vibrant and colourful. It’s full of healthy fats and fibre. Great for a light dinner or lunch. Enjoy and see you next week! Until next time…
