Cauliflower and Broccoli Omelet with Feta

Open-Face Omelet with Cauliflower, Broccoli & Feta

I’m not really sure what to call this. Open-faced omelet? Frittata? Chunky vegetable pancake? Whatever you call it, I’ve really been enjoying this style of “omelet” lately, and this particular combination of ingredients worked very well. I use parsley here, but I could see dill and/or mint also working very well.

Cauliflower and Broccoli Omelet with Feta and Parsley

This is an easy omelet for one, which I make in an oven-safe 20cm frying pan so that I can grill it at the very end. If you don’t have an oven-safe skillet, you could cook it for a few extra minutes on the stove top with the lid on. Adapted from this recipe for a Cauliflower and Feta Omelet.

Ingredients

  • Olive oil
  • ~2 cups broccoli and cauliflower, chopped into small florets
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • small bunch of parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 large egg, whisked (with a splash of milk if you like)
  • ~2 Tbsp of feta or more to taste
  • 5 cherry tomatoes (optional)
  • salt and pepper

Method

  1. Turn on the grill / broiler in your oven
  2. In an oven-safe skillet, saute the broccoli and cauliflower on medium-high heat in some olive oil. Try not to stir too much so they take on some colour in the pan.
  3. Turn the heat down to medium and stir in the garlic, half of the parsley and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Cook for another minute.
  4. Pour in the egg and rotate the pan to distribute the egg evenly.
  5. Crumble the feta over the top, then distribute the cherry tomatoes.
  6. Place under the grill for about 5 minutes, or under the omelet is nicely coloured and the cherry tomatoes have started to burst.
  7. Garnish with the rest of the parsley, a couple grinds of fresh black pepper if you’d like and serve.

    Ooh, I’m digging the open-face element of it! And I can imagine the nice juicy pop of the cherry tomatoes when you bite into it. Mmm…should have seen this before I made breakfast today!
