Just Another Meatless Monday #66 Quick Summer Lunch

Hey What's For Dinner


One of my favorite quick summer lunches is an omelet, it's fast and requires no thinking. I've become quite addicted to the them filled with sauteed greens and a sprinkle of feta this past week, I had 3 so far. I think it's the fresh greens that are luring me in with they're tangy crunchy bite and of course they're availability. I don't seem to enjoy an omelet like this any other time of the year so I guess I should just enjoy them while I can.

Greens Filled Omelet
2 cups fresh washed spinach
1/2 market bunch of spicy greens, turnip or mustard
1 TBSP butter
2 eggs
salt and pepper
2 TBSP of crumbled feta

make sure the greens are washed well, don't bother to dry them the water will help to quickly steam them
heat a large skillet over medium high heat add the washed greens and stir until wilted
reduce heat and remove pan from heat
tilt pan to drain juices from the greens
place a second smaller skillet over the medium low heat and add the butter
crack the eggs in to a small bowl
when the butter has quit foaming in the pan add the eggs and sprinkle with salt and pepper
let it set up for a 30 seconds or so then using a small spatula loosen the edges as they begin to set
when the whole bottom is set up quickly slide the spatula under the eggs and flip over
remove pan from heat and let the eggs finish cooking off heat, about 30 seconds or so
slide the omelet onto a plate fill with greens, arrange any left overs around the eggs
sprinkle on the feta and fold over
serve immediately





Peace and Love--

  1. You omelette sounds lovely, Laura. I like the idea of contrasting the spicy greens with the salty sweet feta cheese - delicious! Thank you for hosting Just Another Meatless Monday. Have a lovely week!

  3. I love eggs in any form. I've got to say though I've never had one with spinach. I'd love to try this out and see what it tastes like!
