This three-ingredient omelette is full of fat, spice, and flavor. It’s sure to keep you satisfied on busy mornings where you’re running out the door, and takes less than 5 minutes to make! All the ingredients can be found at Trader Joe’s!
Last year, I deemed 2017 the year of the omelette and athleisure. I was at the peak of my #fitnessjourney, and I had just moved into a corporate building where the cafe down below cooked amazing omelettes that I packed with spinach, roasted jalapenos, and cheddar cheese. I would have at least 3 a week. Safe to say, 2018 has brought some changes, and I’ve been really trying to focus on #fitnessjourney, my mental health, and not getting caught up in diet culture. And I think a new omelette recipe is just the way to do that.
This is about the easiest you can get in the morning. I’m definitely a morning person, and I love cooking a small meal and enjoying it before I leave the house for work. I’m not saying I do it every morning, but when I have the time it’s something I really look forward to. This is why I am digging on this recipe (have had it the last three mornings!) It’s easy, tasty, and the flavors compliment each other perfectly.
I am SUCH a sucker for new Trader Joe’s products. So when I saw the Zhoug Sauce with it’s bright green color, I grabbed it very quickly off the shelf, not really knowing what I was going to do with it. The ingredients alone are superstars – cilantro, canola oil, jalapeño peppers, chile flakes, garlic, cardamom, sea salt, and cumin seeds, according to the TJ’s website, and Zhoug originates from Yemen (does anyone else think of the Friends episode?) and has been deemed the “Middle Eastern Pesto”. For 8 oz, it’s only $2.99, and a little goes a long way. I don’t find it super spicy, but it gives flavor to the neutral eggs and compliments the tangy goat cheese.
Goat cheese was one of my first cooking loves. When I moved out all on my own, I lived in a tiny little garage apartment with no A/C and a kitchen connected to the bathroom. I made hundreds of taco salads, and I would cook sweet potatoes and top them with goat cheese. Honestly one of my most favorite meals. You can buy all types of goat cheese at Trader Joe’s, but I think the original works best here.
Okay! Onto the recipe. I thought I would start to share easy recipes (since right now that’s really all I have time for in my own cooking life.) What would you like to see? Breakfast? Dinners? Baked Goods? Leave it below in the comments!
|Prep Time||2 minutes|
|Cook Time||5 minutes|
- Start by heating a non-stick saute skillet for 2-3 minutes until medium hot.
- While your pan is heating, put your uncracked eggs into hot water to bring them to room temperature.
- In your pan, heat a pat of butter or spray some olive or coconut oil to grease the pan
- In a separate bowl, crack your eggs and whisk with a fork. This is where I like to get my aggression out usually.
- Pour into heated pan and push around with a paddle until egg is spread out and starts to cook
- Drop a tsbp of Zhoug sauce and a sprinkle of goat cheese into the omelette, and flip half of it over.
- Finish cooking, serve with green onions (that will make it four ingredients, so!) and salt and pepper.
