Rainbow Omelette

The great thing about omelettes is their versatility, almost any filling can be added (sweet or savoury) and they’re good for you, particularly made as the Mediterranean’s do – using the finest extra virgin olive oil.  A rainbow omelette really brightens up the table with a mouth-watering array of colours provided by typical Mediterranean vegetables.

Serves 4


8 eggs
50g red pepper
50g green pepper
75g courgette
8 yellow cherry tomatoes
Bunch of curly parsley

  2. Chop the cherry tomatoes into quarters
  3. Chop the parsley
  4. Beat eggs and season with salt and pepper
  5. Pour 3 spoonfuls of Extra Virgin Olive Oil into a non-stock frying pan and heat
