Rainbow Omelet

The great thing about omelets is their versatility, almost any filling can be added (sweet or savory) and they’re good for you, particularly made as the Mediterranean’s do – using the finest extra virgin olive oil.  A rainbow omelet really brightens up the table with a mouth-watering array of colors provided by typical Mediterranean vegetables.

Serves 4


8 eggs
50g red pepper
50g green pepper
75g courgette
8 yellow cherry tomatoes

  3. Chop the parsley
  4. Beat eggs and season with salt and pepper
