Ingredients

3 tablespoons olive oil
divided
1 small yellow onion
peeled and chopped
1 cup mushrooms
white or cremini, thinly sliced
¼ teaspoon oregano
dried
*
¼ teaspoon thyme
dried
*
1 cup asparagus
tough ends removed, and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup broccoli florets
cut into bite size
4 large eggs
divided
2 tablespoons milk
divided
1 x salt and black pepper
to taste
*
½ cup cheddar cheese
shredded
2 slices whole wheat bread
lightly toasted, optional
*
1 each grapefruit
halved, optional

Directions

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium size nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot.

Add the onions, stirring occasionally, and cook until the onions are soft and start to become brown, about minutes.

Add the mushrooms, and cook until part of the water is evaporated from the mushrooms, another 5 minutes or so.

Stir in the asparagus and broccoli with 2 tablespoons of water, and cook until they are both softened, about 4 minutes.

Season to taste with salt and black pepper.

Transfer the cooked veggies into a bowl, and cover with a plastic wrap to keep warm.

While the vegetables are cooking, crack two eggs into each bowl with 1 tablespoon of milk.

Whisk until well combined. Season with a bit salt and black pepper.

After the veggies are removed from the pan, rinse the pan and wipe it dry.

Place the skillet back to the stove, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to now clean pan.

Heat it over medium heat until hot. Preheat the broiler.

Pour the first two egg mixture into the hot pan, and cook for about 1 minutes.

Place it under broiler for another 30 seconds or so.

Remove from the oven and transfer to a serving plate.

Arrange half cheese over half of the omelette, and place half of the veggie mixture over the cheese.

Fold the other half of the omelette to close. Repeat the same steps to make the second omelette.

Serve warm with a slice of whole grain toast and half grape fruit.

Omelette is one of my favourite breakfast, because it's so quick and easy to make, and I can use whatever veggies I have on hand, so versatile.

Made up this recipe with these listed ingredients that I had at that moment. It came out very good, and I had it with some potato and sweet potato hash browns that I made on my own. Great combination.
