This lovers omelette recipe is perfect for two lovebirds to get a healthy and nutritious start into the day. Many of the ingredients like for example the indigenous spinach
came fresh from my garden and were all grown organically
In my opinion fruit and vegetables that are grown without chemical fertilizers and pesticides are not only healthier, they are tastier as well. We attempt to grow a lot of our required food in our gardens and believe that apart from being relaxing working in the garden gives us some needed extra exercise and lots of delicious and often special produce that we can use in our kitchen.
- 1 sprig of rosemary
- 2 large garlic cloves
- 1 handful of spinach I used a native variety called dune spinach, related to NZ spinach. (optional - if you can't get it use baby or young chard instead
- 4 large chard leaves
- 1 small onion plum sized
- 1 block of tofu 8 x 8 x 2 centimeters roughly. It was already a bit smelly
- 6 eggs I used 5 small hens eggs and one large muscovy duck egg I had, (If you can't get duck eggs, use 7 small hens eggs instead)
- 3 tablespoons of milk
- 1 lemon
- pan with lid
- 2 forks
- 2 plates
- solid hotplate
- egg lifter or spatula
- bowl for eggs
- chopping board
- serrated or very sharp knife
- Heat the pan on high with rosemary sprig (whole) and garlic (halved and peeled) in it
- Rip the spinach off its tough stalks, throw away spinach stalks.
- Chop the chard with its stalks and add the greens to the hot pan
- Chop the onion into fine rings and add to the pan
- Keep pan open to lose moisture
- Stir until somewhat shrunk down (5-10 minutes)
- Turn down the heat to low
- Crumble or chop up the tofu into small pieces, add to the pan.
- Spread the greens and tofu out in the pan with a spatula and put the lid on (2 minutes)
- Mix the eggs and milk with a fork till smooth in colour
- Add to the pan, leave it open till the egg seems to be done 2/3 of the way, only the top third is still liquid
- Squeeze the lemon into the liquid egg
- Put the lid on
- Turn off the stove
- Go and do something that takes about 10 to 20 minutes.
- Come back when the egg is set, and serve it with freshly ground salt and pepper.
