Avocado and Tomato Omelet
1 Egg, Whisked,
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 T of diced onion
1/4 C Diced Tomato
1/4 Avocado, Cubed
1 T of minced cilantro
Olive oil spray
Heat an 8″ skillet to medium and spray pan with olive oil. Sauteed onion until translucent, add tomato and cook until heat thru. Add avocad, salt, and pepper. Cook 30 more seconds. Remove vegetable from pan to a clean plate.
Return pan to stove set to medium heat. Spray pan with oil again. Put egg mixture in pan and cook until lightly set. Occasionally push the cooked egg from the side toward the center and tilt the pan so the runny part goes to the bottom of pan to help the egg cook evenly.
Once the egg is 90% set, turn the pan handle so it points toward you. Place the vegetable on the left 1/2 of the pan if you are right handed (if you’re left handed, place the vegetable on the right 1/2 of pan). Turn the heat off.
Carefully loosen the egg gently from the pan. Til the pan slightly toward your serving plate so the omelet starts to slide off with the side containing the vegetable leading toward the plate. Once 1/2 of the omelet is on the plate, tilt the pan more to fold the top 1/2 of the egg over.
Serve with a few pieces of fresh vegetable.
