Heart Healthy Cherry Tomato and Herb Omelette
This is mainly an egg white omelette, now of course you can make a regular one including the egg yolks but once you give this a try you will see that it is just as good without the yolks and much better for your heart, I add in one yolk just for colour. The sweetness of the cherry tomatoes really comes through to meet the sharp herbs. I normally use herbs like chives, flat leaf parsley or mint… or a mix of all.
Tip. 1 large egg contains
74 calories... 14 of that is for
the white.. 60 is for the yolk
4 large eggs (1 whole and 3 white’s)
8-10 cherry tomatoes
A handful of mixed herbs- chopped
Cheddar cheese (optional)
Sea salt & black pepper
Halve or quarter the cherry tomatoes, pour some olive oil into a non-stick grill proof pan and tip the cut tomatoes in. Season them well and fry them off for 1-2 minutes until just soft.
In the meantime put a grill onto high heat and lightly beat the egg whites in a bowl. Scatter the chopped herbs over the tomatoes and pour the beaten eggs over.
Quickly stir the eggs with a silicon spatula to even them out and make sure they cook evenly. Take off the heat as they start to set, grate a little cheese over the top (if using) and place under the grill for about 2-3 minutes.
Slide onto a warm plate and serve immediately.
