Rolled Omelet With Vegetables

What can be healthier than an omelet roll with colorful vegetables sliced into a perfect bite-size?

This rolled omelet recipe is so simple, quick and nutritious. The best part is, once you master the skill, your omelet can taste different every time you make it! Got some leftover veggies? Put them in. Onions, peppers, carrots, zucchini, and spinach. You name it, whatever you like! Of course, bacon, ham, and cheese can be great filling options too!

My Ingredients:

This is what I had: chopped carrots, spinach and green onions. You want to make sure the veggies are finely chopped so it can be easily cooked, especially the hard vegetables (carrots in this case). I used 4 eggs for my family (2 adults and 1 toddler).

Make the Egg Mixture:

Transfer everything into the egg bowl, add salt and black pepper to taste. I also added some starch to make the mixture more sticky, which will help the mixture form the shape more quickly.

Get It Rolling in the Pan: 

Heat up the pan over low-medium and add in oil. Now pour a portion of the egg mixture into a thin layer. Swirl the pan to make the shape round. When the egg is set but still wet, start rolling from the edge nearest to your with a spatula. You may need another utensil to hold the egg while you roll it. Repeat this process until you finish all the mixture.

One thing to note is, don’t wait until the egg mixture is completely dry to start rolling, that’ll be too late! When you are in the motion of rolling the omelet, it will be completely cooked through once it’s all rolled up.

Cut It And Serve With Fruits:

There you have it, a beautiful breakfast plate full of nutrition. By the way, it’s not just good for breakfast. Serve it as a side dish for any meal at home or in your lunch box. Hope your family stay healthy and enjoy this simple recipe!

Recipe Notes
  1. Depending on the size of your pan, the amount of mixture you use every time can be different. I used 12" pan, so my mixture can only make 2 omelet rolls.
  2. You don't need to strictly follow the ingredients' amount in this recipe. If you want a thicker roll, just use more eggs. Adjust the amount of veggies based on your situation. This recipe is highly flexible.
  3. Don't wait until the top of the mixture become dry. It's best to start the rolling process when the top is still wet.

Shrimp with Broccoli

 

shrimp with broccoli

Thinking about something simple but tasty? Shrimp with broccoli is the one! It can be simply served on top of white rice, or as part of a multi-course meal with friends and families. The key is to keep each ingredient as fresh as possible so that the color is original and vibrant.

I used large-sized shrimps since they tend to shrink a bit after cooking. If you like any other vegetables, please feel free to add them in. That’s the beauty of stir-fry:)  Just simply boil all in a pot with a few drops of oil, which helps maintain the color of ingredients. Oyster sauce is a must have for this recipe. You can get it from any Chinese or Korean grocery store, or even online. Now let’s start cooking!
