Gluten free omelette with spinach & ricotta

This gluten free omelette recipe is made for people who: have little time, only a few ingredients left in their fridge, need something nutritious and healthy, yet still want to be feeling satisfied and full and/or cook for themselves!

This recipe is based on a trip to Curaçao where Marcus and I had spinach-ricotta omelettes every morning. It was mindblowing. Why had I never thought of spinach & ricotta as such a perfect combination?! So the first thing we did when getting home from holidays, is creating our own recipe with these ingredients.

Is this gluten free omelette recipe a healthy one?

Hell yeah it is! It is not only delicious, but also packs a nutritional punch. Eggs are an excellent source of protein, while spinach provides essential vitamins and minerals. Ricotta cheese adds a creamy texture and a good dose of calcium. This wholesome combination will keep you energised and satisfied throughout the day.

How to make it?

It is so easy: I wish I could write more about it but it really is very short.

You start by whisking the eggs together in a bowl. Now chop up the mushrooms and set aside.

Place a frying pan on medium heat with a dash of olive oil. Add the chopped mushrooms & the herbs de provence. Fry for a few mins to soften the mushrooms and let the herbs mix properly. Add the spinach as well and fry for a minute or so, until it wilts. Now get everything out of the pan and leave on a side plate.

Place the frying pan back on heat with some olive oil. Add the whisked eggs and leave to fry until the egg is almost set. Once that is done (should be after a few minutes), crumble over the ricotta and add the spinach & mushroom mixture onto the omelette. Now wait until the egg is truly set and you’re ready for lunch!

This recipe is both very, very easy ánd really good. Great to make for lunch, the flavours really complement each other!
