- 4 large eggs
- 2 cups fresh spinach
- ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs (such as parsley, dill, or oregano)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Heat the olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the fresh spinach and sauté until wilted, approximately 2-3 minutes. Season the spinach with a pinch of salt and pepper to enhance the flavors. Set aside.
- In a medium-sized bowl, whisk the eggs until smooth and well combined. Season with a sprinkle of salt and pepper to taste. This will ensure a well-seasoned base for your omelette.
- Preheat another non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. It’s important to use a non-stick skillet to achieve a perfectly cooked omelette that slides effortlessly on the plate.
- Pour the beaten eggs into the preheated skillet. Allow the eggs to spread evenly across the surface by gently tilting the skillet.
- Once the edges of the omelette begin to set, sprinkle the sautéed spinach and crumbled feta cheese on one side of the omelette. Sprinkle the fresh herbs over the filling, allowing their aromatic essence to infuse the omelette.
- Using a spatula, carefully fold the other half of the omelette over the filling. Press gently to seal the flavors within.
- Cook for another minute or so, until the eggs are fully set and the feta cheese begins to melt. Be cautious not to overcook the omelette, as it may become dry.
- Gently transfer the omelette to a plate, either by sliding it or using the spatula. Serve immediately, savoring its delightful aroma and flavors.
Tips and Suggestions:
- For a burst of tanginess, substitute the feta cheese with goat cheese.
- Enhance the flavors by incorporating other ingredients into the filling, such as sun-dried tomatoes, caramelized onions, or sliced olives.
- If you prefer a little kick, add a dash of red pepper flakes or sprinkle some chopped fresh chili pepper into the egg mixture.
- Pair this delightful omelette with a side of fresh Greek salad or crusty bread for a complete Mediterranean feast.
