In preparation for a long day at work today I was really in the mood for something simple and delicious for breakfast to give me a great start to the day. I am attending day 4 of my 5 day course which started last week and it's proving a little tiring. To keep me going throughout the day, I thought an omelette would be a great start to kick me into action and get my brain working after a leisurely weekend. Now usually when I think omelette I think big, stuffed with everything you can imagine and topped with melted cheddar cheese. So today, seeing as it's breakfast I decided I'd cut back on all the 'bold' things and try and be good by filling my omelette with delicious green spinach. This recipe is quick and easy to whip up, is incredibly tasty and boasts a high protein content while being low in saturated fat and carbohydrate.....the perfect start to a Monday morning!
Spinach and Chorizo Omelette
25g sliced chorizo
2 slices of bacon (fat trimmed) cut into small pieces
1 small onion (chopped finely)
2 handfuls of washed spinach
1. Heat a good non-stick frying pan. Once heated add the bacon to the pan and fry gently ( you
will not require any oil if using a non-stick frying pan).
2. Meanwhile whisk the eggs and set aside. Once the bacon is browned add the onion and
chorizo and cook until the onion is softened.
3. Next add the spinach and cook until wilted.
4. Finally pour the beaten egg over the mixture and cook each side until golden brown.
This recipe is really simple and despite only containing 5 ingredients, really tasty. I really didn't miss the presence of the cheese and this healthier alternative to my usual omelette feasts has pleasantly surprised me.
