Easy Omelette

Serves 4
  • 8 eggs 
  • Olive oil, to sauté filling 
  • 1/3 cup filling per person (brie & ham, cheddar & sautéed shallots or onions, mozzarella & rocket) 
  • 8 tsp butter
  • Salt and pepper  
  1. Beat eggs with ¼ cup water and salt and pepper. Sauté ingredients for omelette filling, if necessary
  2. Melt 2 tsp butter in a small non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Slowly pour in a quarter of the beaten eggs and tilt pan until it completely covers the surface. Use a wooden spoon to move any uncooked egg from the edges to the centre, and cook until omelette has set around the edges, but the middle is still runny
  3. Sprinkle filling down the centre of the omelette. Use a spatula to fold one-third of the omelette towards the centre. Hold the pan over a plate and gently roll the omelette out of the pan, folding the other edge into the centre as you do so.
  4. Repeat to make three more filled omelettes. Serve immediately

Coconut Pancakes

Serves 4

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (plus more for cooking)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup coconut milk 
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup coconut flour 
  • 1 tsp baking soda 
  • Salt 
  1. Melt coconut oil and cool to room temperature. Whisk eggs vigorously until thoroughly combined 
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir melted coconut oil, milk and vanilla into beaten eggs. Sift in the flour and baking soda. Add a pinch of salt. If batter seems too thick, add some more milk, about 1 tbsp at a time
  3. Heat a pan over medium-high heat. Heat about 1tsp coconut oil in the pan. Ladle in three small pancakes, so that they won’t break when you flip them 
  4. Watch them closely. They will brown and start to get fragrant after 2-3 minutes. Flip them carefully and cook for another 2 minutes 
  5. Serve immediately, berries and cream make a lovely addition to this recipe

  2. For the salad, divide asparagus, radishes and cucumber among four plates. Nestle burrata pieces among the vegetables 
  3. For the vinaigrette, in a small bowl whisk 1 tbsp of lime zest with 1 tbsp of lime juice, olive oil and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper, drizzle over salad and serve

  4. While salmon is resting, in a small bowl, combine mayonnaise with 1 tsp of lime zest, 1 tbsp of lime juice, chives, dill, and mustard. Season with salt and pepper. 
  5. Serve salmon at room temperature. Place fillet on each of four plates and top of a generous dollop of lime-dill mayonnaise
