Courgette, Semi Dried Tomato and Olive Omelette

Eggs can make a great meal.  They are rich in protein, and also contain Vitamins D, E, K, B6, calcium and zinc.  Although high in cholesterol they help raise the HDL (HIgh Density Lipoprotein) also termed good cholesterol so help reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.  They also contain antioxidants which help improve eye health.  Due to their high protein content eggs are thought to help keep you feeling fuller for longer and therefore taking in less calories.  Many of us do not eat enough eggs so here is a simple and tasty recipe you might like to try for yourself to increase your weekly egg intake.  This recipe can be adapted to suit your taste so mix and match ingredients to your liking.


1 tbs olive oil

1 medium courgette

100g semi dried tomatoes

50g pitted kalamata olives

3 medium eggs

1tbs milk (full fat)

40g mature cheddar (grated)

Freshly ground sea salt to taste

Freshly ground pepper to taste


Thinly slice the courgette into discs.  Break the eggs into a bowl, add the milk and give it a little whisk until it lightens in colour a little.  Set aside.  Heat a frying pan and add in 1 tbs olive oil.  Throw in the courgette and cook for approx. 3 minutes then add in the tomatoes and olives.  Add in freshly ground salt and pepper to taste and stir.  Sprinkle over the cheese.


Pour over the egg mixture and cook at a low / medium heat, covered with a lid for approx. 5 minutes until the egg is completely cooked through.


Serve hot.
