Meatless Friday: Avocado Omelette
Happy Friday! I'm so excited to be sharing this recipe for Meatless Friday with Someday Saints readers! I love Gina, and absolutely love this series since we're fairly new to incorporating Meatless Fridays year round in our home.
The star is avocado, which in my opinion, is the star of ALL the foods! I love avocados for snacks, in pico de gallo, in salsa, in salads, burgers, pastas, sandwiches, and last but not least, in breakfast!
For our Meatless Friday meal last week, I diced up a whole avocado (because I'm generous like that), shredded some leftover manchego cheese we had from a previous Feast day, and diced up yellow and orange bell peppers with some garlic.
Shredded Manchego Cheese (any white cheese will do)
6-8 Cloves of Garlic (I'm a fan of garlic so you can use less if you like.)
1 Orange Bell Pepper
1Yellow Bell Pepper
1 TSP of Basil
1 TBSP of Olive Oil
Sliver of real butter
Salt and Pepper to taste
DirectionsTo start, I dice up the avocado, garlic (minced), and yellow and orange bell pepper. Then crack eggs into a small bowl to scramble as well as add a dash of salt and pepper.
Heat up two pans: One set to Medium (for omelette) and the other set to Medium High (to saute peppers). Put in a sliver of real butter into the Medium Heat then add the omelette mix. Let it cook through.
Meanwhile, add a TBSP of Olive Oil to the Medium High heat followed by the peppers, garlic, and basil. Sautee for about 5-7 minutes. There is something incredibly delicious about the basil with the sweet peppers and garlic!
Next, add avocado to center of the omelette (that should be 90% cooked through) as well as the shredded Manchego Cheese. Turn the other half of the omelette over the avocado/cheese mix to heat through.
Serve the omelette onto a plate and add the pepper mix on top.
I could not have been more excited about the flavors in this omelette! Then, knowing I had the toast with a slab of real butter on it (I'm a recent convert to all things real butter) and my tastebuds did a happy dance!
Let me know if you end up making this and what you think!
Thanks so much for having me, Gina! And, thank you for all you do and share on Someday Saints!
