Googie’s Kitchen presents Spicy Sunshine Omelette

Spicy Sunshine Omelette

Omelettes, if you are not vegan, are quick, easy and healthy meals that can be made in minutes. It’s my go-to dinner when we get home from a holiday or if I’m in need of a simple lunch. Omelette, homemade chips and salad is a winner for us after a long journey. If you regularly read my blog, you will know that I love to experiment and I really enjoy putting a twist on a meal.

When we were eating the omelette and chips one day I decided to turn that meal into a sunshine omelette. I thought about what vegetables I could put into the omelette. The other day I was standing looking into my pantry and I wondered what Sunshine Omelette would taste like as a spicy omelette. I set to work looking through the spices in the cupboard and I found what I thought would make a great dinner. The combination of flavours gave the omelette so much extra flavour. It was super tasty and it’s definitely a meal we will be eating again. Below is a video and recipe for you.

Spicy Sunshine Omelette

Spicy Sumac Sunshine Omelette was a delicious meal that my whole family really enjoyed. We ate this with a warm kale salad but it could be eaten with my homemade baked beans too. The meal makes a yummy dinner but it’s also great as leftovers the next day too. It’s easily transportable in a lunch box too. Plus it keeps well in the fridge too. However you decide to eat this dish, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
