Garden Omelet

Ingredients

  • 2 large kale leaves, stemmed and halved lengthwise
  • 4 Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 3 large pasture-raised eggs
  • 5 large pasture-raised egg whites
  • freshly ground black pepper and sea salt, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 crimini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 2 (1/2-ounce) packages roasted seaweed snacks (see note)
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced, for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon white truffle oil (optional, for garnish)

Method

Step 1

Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high-heat. When it boils, add a large pinch of sea salt. Drop in the kale leaves and Brussels sprouts and blanch just until they turn a brighter shade of green, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain well.

Step 2

Crack the 3 eggs into a medium mixing bowl, and then add the 5 egg whites. Whisk the eggs together and season with salt and black pepper, to taste.

Step 3

Heat the oil in a large nonstick pan over medium-heat. Add the eggs and immediately turn the heat down to low. Stir to scramble the eggs, tilting the pan to distribute them in an even layer.

Step 4

As soon as the eggs are no longer runny, arrange the Brussels sprouts on one side of the omelet and scatter the mushrooms over them. Add the kale and sprinkle the cilantro and dill on top. Cover the herbs all with the seaweed snacks and top with the spinach.

Step 5

Cover the pan and cook over the lowest possible heat for 5 minutes.

Step 6

Fold the omelet in half and then cut it into 4 sections. Garnish each portion with a few slices of avocado and a drizzle of truffle oil, if using. Serve immediately.
