Amanda’s Yummy Microwave Omelette

7 Oct

This microwave omelette is packed with goodness and is about 300 calories per serve.

Having protein in the morning is an excellent way to keep hunger at bay until lunchtime. Add a good serving of vegetables and you have a complete, nutrient dense meal that’s bursting with flavour.

This is perfect to make at work and gives old toast and cereal a run for it’s money! You could even add a slice of multigrain bread for an extra 70 calories if you like.

Ingredients

2 – 3 button mushrooms, sliced
1/2 a tomato, sliced
1/4 a red or green capsicum, diced
Handful of baby spinach
2 eggs, beaten
30g of reduced fat feta cheese

Place all the vegetables in a microwave safe bowl or container. Microwave on high for 60 – 90 seconds or until softened.

In a separate bowl, crumble the feta into the beaten eggs. Pour this mixture on top of the vegetables and microwave on high for 60 – 90 seconds or until egg is cooked through. Then eat!

Get adventurous with the vegetables! Try onion, asparagus, basil, parsley, chives or whatever takes your fancy.

What’s your favorite breakfast recipe that includes eggs?

    Yum!
    Recently, I’ve been on the smoothie wagon for breakfasts. Lots of spinach and leafy greens mixed with lots of fruits and berries. Mmmm.

    I do love eggs for breakfast, though. Scrambling them with a fork and then microwaving makes for a quick, easy egg that can be put on a slice of toast for a quick, portable breakfast. Poached eggs on toast is another favourite. Or, sometimes, just a hard boiled egg with a pinch of garlic salt right from the fridge.

    …I’m craving some eggs, now!

    I’ve already posted my ham and egg tortilla recipe here on a different post! šŸ™‚

    That omelette looks amazing by the way. It’s the perfect thing to show someone who says that they don’t have enough time to eat something healthy for breakfast!

    Anyway, this is a recipe idea from my Dad- he chops up and sautes some spanish onion, baby spinach, button mushrooms and minced garlic. Then you pull it all into the centre of the pan, crack an egg on top, and invert a small saucepan over the top. Turn the heat down low and it poaches the egg on top of the vegies. It’s sooo good, especially on some lovely grainy toast.

    Oh wow, I’ve never actually cooked eggs in the microwave before, for some reason I thought they would go rubbery! I might give it a shot now šŸ™‚

    • Amanda October 7, 2010 at 1:32 pm #

      They aren’t rubbery at all! More often than not though I ended up just scrambling everything together when it comes out of the microwave so it’s more like scrambled eggs!

    That looks fabulous and I heart that you cook them in the microwave, love those little shortcuts that make life oh so easy. It’s especially nice that cooked eggs reheat nicely, this would make a delish breakfast at the office šŸ™‚

      I’m all about putting minimal effort in for maximum results! Haha! šŸ˜‰
