broccoli and cheddar omelette (#ketofriendly, low carb)

I don’t know how it’s possible that time passes so quickly. I remember writing that I’m excited to share some Autumn recipes and I feel like it was yesterday. But somehow two months passed so quickly that I didn’t even noticed that we’re getting closer to Winter.

I had couple small but time consuming projects that engaged me, and to be honest cooking was somewhere at the end of my list. Again. I’m not happy with my eating habits and I keep telling myself that from now on I will pay more attention to what I eat. But as I have quite weak strong will, I keep on coming back on the same track. What can I say – carbs are addictive, especially the processed ones. Cookies, ice creams and doughnuts will always find you at your weakest moment – when you’re hungry, angry, sad or you need a treat.

So today I would like to show you a quick and easy recipe for delicious breakfast that will keep you full for some time, so you won’t feel cravings for cookies and doughnuts πŸ™‚ This omelette is keto friendly, so if you’re on keto diet it’s a perfect breakfast recipe for you.

You will need some young broccoli or tenderstem broccoli, so you can stir fry it in couple minutes. I used 3 large eggs to make this omelette and I could barely eat it. It’s pretty heavy, so you can use 3 small or medium eggs or 2 large ones.

I also added one garlic clove, because garlic (butter and cheese too) makes everything better, but if you need to spend your day around other people you can skip the garlic. Non stick pan will be also very useful, so everything will go smooth and with no problems.

This omelette is perfect for Autumn/Winter mornings – cheesy, warming (hint of chilli flakes makes your blood start circulating quicker in the morning) and delicious. Highly recommend for cosy mornings spent in fluffy pyjamas under the blanket.

broccoli and cheddar omelette

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 eggs
  • handful of young broccoli with leaves and stems (for example tenderstem)
  • handful of grated mature cheddar
  • pinch of natural rock salt
  • 1 garlic clove
  • pinch of freshly ground black pepper
  • pinch of chilli flakes
  • small slice of butter

DIRECTIONS

Wash and roughly chop broccoli, melt a little bit of butter in the frying pan and stir fry broccoli with pinch of salt and chopped garlic. If you don’t like garlicky after-taste just skip it. Also add pinch of salt and stir fry 3-4 minutes on a small heat. If you want your broccoli to become more soft rather than crunchy add a splash of water to the pan.

Grate some cheddar, whisk the eggs with pinch of salt.

Remove broccoli from the pan. Add a little bit more butter if you want, lower the heat and pour the eggs. When eggs starts setting add broccoli and grated cheddar (save some cheese to sprinkle on top). You can cover the pan with lid if you like your omelette to be well done. When it’s ready take the spatula and fold one side of the omelette, sprinkle with cheddar on top and give it a couple seconds to melt.

Gently place on the plate sprinkle with some chilli flakes and your broccoli and cheddar omelette is ready. Enjoy!
