Omelettes With Avocado and Leafy Greens 

Serves 4

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 sheets nori, sliced into 1 cm strips
  • 2 avocados, thinly sliced
  • 2 handfuls of baby spinach
  • 1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

METHOD

1. Heat half the olive oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add half the beaten egg and swirl to coat the base of the pan; you want a thin omelette so pour off the excess if you add too much.
2. Cook until the edge of the omelette starts to set, lifting it with a spatula and allowing any uncooked egg to run underneath. Once the base is set, flip and cook the other side. Remove the omelette from the
pan and repeat with the remaining beaten egg.
3. Top each omelette with nori, sliced avocado and spinach. Drizzle with lemon juice and season with salt and pepper, then roll up to enclose the filling.
4. Cut the omelettes in half and divide among four plates to serve.
