    Baby greens omelette with garlic and chilli sauce

    • Vegetarian

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes

    Serves: 2


    6 large eggs
    ½ x 28g pack coriander, finely chopped
    200g baby leaf greens, bases trimmed, leaves finely shredded •
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 small garlic clove, crushed
    30g unsalted butter
    sriracha chilli sauce, to serve


    1. Beat the eggs and coriander together very lightly in a bowl, just to combine the yolks slightly; season. Rinse the shredded greens under cool water in a colander. Shake dry.

    2. Put the oil and garlic in a medium, non-stick frying pan and place over a medium heat. When the garlic just begins to sizzle, add the rinsed greens (working in batches if needed), season, turn the heat up and stir-fry for 2 minutes, until wilted. Tip onto a plate.

    3. Return the pan to the heat, turning it down to medium-low. Add ½ the butter. Once gently foaming, add ½ the egg, swirling it around the pan. Use a spatula to draw the egg in from the edges, swirling any liquid egg into the gaps. Once just set on top, pile half the greens into the centre, fold the omelette in half and slide onto a plate. Wipe out the pan and repeat to make a second omelette. Drizzle with sriracha sauce to serve.
