Enoki mushroom and spinach omelette


If you are planning on making breakfast or brunch for someone special this weekend and you'd like something healthy and tasty that looks more impressive than it really is, then this recipe is for you.  The enoki mushrooms bring a little 'fancy' to the dish yet it all comes together quickly and easily. 

I love buying a different ingredient at the fruit and vegetable market, it makes me excited to cook something new.  This week it was these enoki mushrooms that caught me eye. Inspired by Growling Belly they make a great addition to an omelette. To prepare them, cut off and discard the bottom ends. Then cut them again into thirds.  Finely dice some carrot and slice some spring onion and you are just about ready to go.

Whisk four eggs in a small bowl and add a teaspoon of soy sauce.  Spray a pan with cooking oil and cook the egg mixture until half-set.  Top with carrot, spring onion, enoki mushrooms, a sprinkle of spinach and some sesame seeds.

Finish the omelette in the oven under the grill get a crisp and golden edge.  The carrot adds great texture and the mushrooms provides an earthiness that complements the eggs nicely.

  2. I haven't seen these mushrooms before either, but this recipe looks so tasty! My toddler is currently eating lunch besides me and started pointing to the screen and saying 'yummy, yummy, yummy' when I was looking at the photos. Haha, I guess it looks nicer than what he's currently eating.
