If your herb garden or window box is growing at full throttle, this is a great omelette to create and use up some of those fresh herbs. Taught to me by a fantastic Belgian chef, these omelettes can be kept in the fridge for up to 24 hours, ready to warm up for whenever you need a quick feed.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
110g fresh herbs, such as dill, parsley, chives, coriander and tarragon
5 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
freshly ground black pepper
100ml water
4 teaspoons olive oil
100g feta
handful coriander leaves

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 140°C. Chop your herbs, except for the coriander, as finely as you can; a mezzaluna is quite handy here to get a good chopping action going.
  2. Crack all the eggs into a bowl, season with salt and pepper, and add the water. Give it a good whisk. Add the herbs and stir to combine.
  3. Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a non-stick frying pan and imagine you are going to make a lovely thin crêpe. I find that by visualising this process it helps you get what you want. Add about 2 tablespoons of the mixture, or enough to coat the bottom of the pan evenly. A good size to aim for is 15 cm.
  4. Cook undisturbed until the edges start to brown and the egg is just cooked through. You won’t need to flip these as they are so thin. Carefully slide the omelette from the pan on to a baking sheet, crumble over some feta, add a few torn coriander leaves and roll up. Keep the omelettes warm in the oven until you are ready to serve.
  5. I like to eat these with a simple fresh tomato salad.
