How lovely is it that the tables have turned and you are able to cook for your parents now. It was so lovely when my mum came to spend time with me last Friday and requested me to make her a spicy spinach and cheese omelette! She loves loves chilli, don’t know where I get that from? 😉
So to heat up the flavours, I decided to shallow fry off the 2 chillies in the oil base. This way the oil started to infuse the spicy heat and this then transferred itself to the whole yummy omelette! Such a simple and tasty dish yet so satisfying. Mum was happy and so was I!
Here’s to more foodie requests from our families for us to make for them!
1/2 cup shredded spinach
1/3 cup grated mature cheddar cheese
1 green chilli finely chopped
1 tbsp milk
Salt to taste
1/3 tsp ground cumin powder
Pinch of turmeric powder
1 tbsp olive oil
Heat the oil in a non stick frying pan on a low heat. Beat the eggs and milk with a fork. Add the rest of the ingredients and combine well
Pour into the frying pan and still on a low heat let it set. Once set, place a lid or plate onto the pan so that the top of the omelette cooks in its own steam
Wait a few minutes, making sure all of it is cooked through
Serve with some buttered toast and savour the spiciness!
