World's Best Vegetarian Omelette, for a healthy and happy start of your day. It is too easy to make, and the secret to an absolutely great omelette is using fresh ingredients. You'd be surprised how this omelette tastes like a restaurant one. Low carb, gluten free recipe.
I might be able to skip lunch or dinner, but l can’t possibly start my day without breakfast. I’m like an engine that does not work without fuel. An omelette is filling and gives you the energy you need to get going.
This recipe makes one big portion, in case you are really hungry, or share it with one more person, and it's still a filling and delicious breakfast.
Omelettes are so easy to make and only require a few inexpensive ingredients, but, of course, you can adapt this recipe to your own taste.
Also, some people like egg white omelettes only, in which case you separate the yolk from the white and follow the same simple steps.
It might not be as easy to flip it over, and the omelette is likely to stick to the pan though, so make sure you add plenty of butter, and perhaps less vegetables, to make the omelette lighter.
How to make a good vegetarian omelette
Making an omelette is super easy, but you need ONE GOOD NON-STICK PAN if you want your omelette to look good, and not like scrambled eggs. Moreover, always grease the pan, whether with oil or butter, just a small amount would do, otherwise it will stick to the pan big time.
- Crack and add the eggs to a bowl, beat them with a fork and season with salt and pepper.
- Once the butter is melted, add the beaten eggs, and spread over evenly, tilting the pan to ensure you get the same thickness.
- Leave to cook undisturbed until the edges start to cook, but there is still raw eggs in the middle. Now you can add your toppings, then carefully flip the omelette over with a spatula, and leave to cook on the other side.
And that's your omelette! Easy, right?
What can you add in omelettes?
The answer is pretty much anything you like. Cooked bacon, cooked chicken, cooked any other meat, salmon, or any fish you like. Then we have veggies, spinach, kale, arugula, mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, garlic, peppers, zucchini, and the list is endless.
Grated cheese is just amazing, parmesan, cheddar, gouda, again, whatever you have in the fridge. Just make sure you don't overcrowd the omelette, as it won't be easy to flip it over to the other side.
I must say that whenever I buy eggs from the supermarket, I always go for the free range ones. I want to think they are a tad healthier than the eggs coming from caged chickens. Although, I would not be surprised if they are as unhealthy.
My 2-egg and veggie omelette has 279 calories, so good healthy breakfast to fuel you up with energy. For some more healthy breakfast ideas, how about my egg muffin cups? Or my Fluffy Parmesan Scrambled Eggs?

World's Best Vegetarian Omelette
- 2 large eggs
- ¼ red pepper, chopped
- ¼ cup Cheddar cheese, grated
- a few leaves of fresh baby spinach
- 2 cherry tomatoes, chopped
- salt and pepper
- ¼ teaspoon butter
- Cut the cherry tomatoes, red pepper and spinach leaves.
- Melt the butter in the frying pan.
- Beat the eggs with a fork and season with salt and pepper.
- Add the mixture to the pan and spread it out evenly. When it starts to firm up, but still has a bit of raw on top, add grated cheese and also the cherry tomatoes, spinach, and red pepper.
- Using a spatula, ease the edges and quickly turn it over onto the other side.
- The other side will cook a lot quicker, it only needs about 1-2 minutes.
- When it is done, place a large plate on top of the pan and flip the omelette as fast as you can.
- Serve immediately.
I love omelettes! What I normally do is cook the veggies and the eggs separately, and then fold the eggs over the veggies. But tomorrow morning I will try your method. Wish me luck!
I hope you will like it, thank you for stopping by ?
I love my chickens! Here is Australia we get a lot of foxes so we can't let our chickens out of their pen (3 tier Chicken mansion) during spring otherwise they'll get eaten! Love this recipe idea though. I've never tried flipping once the ingredients are on top. I'll be sure to try this tomorrow morning 🙂
I hope you like the omelette, it's one of my favourite brakfasts!
I just read about putting veggies in FIRST and sautee to soften a bit. Then pour egg mixture over. Makes total sense to me.
If the veggies are cut small, there is no need to sautee them first, they will cook quickly.
Thanks a lot!
I am a vegetarian and clicked this link which came up in a search engine, all excited to look for vegetarian Omlet...but it actually involves eggs and so the post is misleading.
As far as l know, eggs are used in a vegetarian diet. It’s actually the first time l hear someone questioning that.
Someone is thinking VEGAN diet. Vegetarians eat eggs and dairy products. They just don't eat meat
You must be vegan not vegetarian. Look for recipes that say Vegan.
Vegetarians eat eggs, dairy and honey as well as lots of veg. of course. VEGANS do NOT eat eggs, dairy and honey. So if you do not eat these last 3 items, you are a vegan!!
Forgot to say that I am a vegetarian with a vegan partner.
I call this style a frittata. Instead of flipping I cover the pan with a lid until the top is done. Adding chopped mushrooms and onion is my preference too. I use Olive oil instead of butter also.
If on a low salt diet like I am then Mrs Dash garlic and herb seasoning adds delicious flavor to egg dishes.
I went to enjoy a traditional Mexican dinner and it was delicious.
This was super easy and delicious. It cooked too fast …. Maybe I need a smaller pan and lower heat. But I cut my veggies really small and add bacon - I don’t eat meat but bacon is bacon. Lol. I wasn’t able to flip it over but folded in half after the egg was firm, covered it for 3 minutes to melt the cheese and it was delicious. Crispy cooked veggies and meaty cheese. Perfect for dinner tonight!
