When I need a quick and easy meal, omelette’s are normally top of the list. They are simple dinners to prepare and cook and they don’t mean I have to spend hours in the kitchen. Plus I can experiment with flavours as well. Spices are a great way to add plenty of flavour to an omelette.
Plus spices are packed full of health benefits. They are a great way to stay well during winter. Eating spices can can help to control blood sugar levels, enhance circulation and they can also help to aid digestion. Although spices aren’t prescribed by any doctor adding them to your diet can help your overall well being. The spices in this omelette certainly made our meal more interesting and hopefully they will help with this year’s cold and flu season too.

Spicy Sumac Omelette was so simple but very tasty. It makes a great evening dinner or it could be cooked as a lunchtime meal as well. Personnally I would freeze this meal but I would eat it as leftovers the next day. We thoroughly enjoyed this dinner and we hope you do too. However you decide to eat this meal, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
