This dish was supposed to be prepared and share with August Little Thumbs Up Event on Eggs Theme but somehow couldn't make it. Anyway, I managed to prepare this for Karen's September Cooking with Herbs Blog Challenge since this recipe uses fresh herbs cooked in an omelette.
I had prepared a Basil Omelette [see here] last month using only basil but this omelette has more herbs added which is even more aromatic. Moreover with Parmesan cheese added, it's awesome. For the nutritional information on this dish, please visit this site.
Notes on the ingredients
- Basil - a member of the mint family, used medicinally for digestive upsets, migraine, nervous tension, constipation, insomia and for treatment of coughs and sore throats. Its also a natural insecticide, an insect repellant
- Mint - known for its medicinal and culinary values, believes to allay nausea and help ease colic pain
- Coriander - known as Chinese parsley or cilantro. A common aid for digestion and appetite stimulant.
- Spring Onions - a vitamin-enriched herb supposed to reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, has a natural antibiotic action, relieves congestion in the air passage and aids cancer resistance
[original recipe from Marshall Cavendish Cookery Books with slight modifications]
2 tbsp white wine or water
1/4 tsp salt to taste
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
30 gm fresh mint leaves - coarsely chopped
30 gm fresh basil leaves - coarsely chopped
30 gm fresh coriander leaves - coarsely chopped
1 stalk spring onions - coarsely chopped
1 tbsp Parmesan cheese powder
1-2 tbsp butter or olive oil
- Beat eggs with water/wine, salt, pepper and cheese. Add in all the herbs. Stir gently with a fork to mix well.
- Heat butter/oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Pour in the mixture, spreading it evenly, cover to cook for 1-2 minutes until the omelette is lightly browned on the underside.
- Flip omelette to cook the other side for 1-2 minutes until the egg is just set.
