This is a quick, easy and very healthy way to cook omelette. You can chuck in whatever veg you have leftover in the fridge, making this a great family meal to prepare in a hurry.

Ingredients

  • 50g/1 3/4oz butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 300g/10 1/2oz spinach, roughly chopped
  • 150g/5 1/2oz fresh or frozen peas
  • 6 eggs
  • 100g/3 1/2oz hard mozzarella, finely chopped
  • 50g/1 3/4oz mortadella, cubed
  • Salt and pepper

If you really want to splash out, try adding escarole instead of spinach for a more mellow flavour.

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven at 180C/350F/Gas 4.
  2. Heat the butter and olive oil in a frying pan and add the spinach. Cook at a medium heat for about 2-3 mins until it has softened.
  3. Add the peas and a couple of tablespoons of water, cover with a lid and continue to cook on a low heat for a further 5 mins until the peas have softened, too.
  4. Remove from the heat and leave to cool slightly.
  5. In a bowl, beat the eggs with some salt and pepper, stir in the mozzarella, mortadella and the cooled vegetables.
  6. Lightly grease an ovenproof dish (approx. 22cm/81/2in diameter) with some butter, pour in the mixture and bake in the pre-heated oven for about 20-25 mins until the omelette has set and is golden.
  7. Remove from the oven, leave for a minute, then serve hot or cold.
