One thing that you have been wanting is more breakfast ideas. And a fresh vegetable omelette like this one makes a great breakfast or brunch. But omelettes aren’t just for breakfast or brunch anymore! This recipe is simple, smells heavenly and tastes even better.
The omelette is perfect for summertime, when your garden or the local farmer’s market is full of great fresh produce! I really love going down and picking up fresh produce from one of the farmers at my local market, and coming home and whipping up and omelette! I buy my eggs locally as well, and so the flavor is truly amazing! And you can customize this dish to your own preferences and according to which fresh veggies you have on hand like I do!!
If possible, use free range, cage free eggs which have a great balance of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids and are higher in vitamin D, E and A….don’t forget downright yummy!
Don’t forget to sprinkle on some freshly grated cheese….or a little fresh goat cheese! Yum!!
This dish is naturally both gluten and grain free.

- Melt the butter over low heat in omelette pan.
