Coriander Omelette


This could just as well be called a frittata or perhaps a tortilla, but I rather think of it as an omelette. In Sweden, we call omelettes with potatoes "Peasant Omelettes", and regardless of name, it's one of my favorite things to fix for lunch. Titus can help, and he likes eating the result, too.

Adding coriander to the eggs is most excellent - really do try this.

Coriander Omelette
serves 2

3 eggs
2 tbsp water
3-4 tbsp fresh coriander
pinch of salt
olive oil
3 potatoes, boiled
1/2 yellow onion
1 garlic clove
1/2 yellow bellpepper

Dice the onion, bellpepper and potato, and mince the garlic.

Heat a little oil in a frying pan, and fry the onion, garlic and pepper on fairly low heat until softened. Set aside, and heat more oil. Fry the potato, on medium-high heat, until golden brown. Lower the heat back to medium-low, and add the veggies back to the pan.

Whisk the eggs with the water, coriander and salt in a bowl. Add to the frying pan and fry on medium-low heat until the omelette has set. Serve right away.
