Broccoli And Parmesan Omelette

Broccoli And Parmesan Omelette

If you want to start your morning with a tasty, filling and healthy breakfast, try this delicious broccoli and Parmesan omelette. 

Broccoli is part of the very healthy cruciferous vegetable family - which also includes cabbage, cauliflower, kale, watercress, rocket/arugula and Brussel sprouts (plus a few more).

I make sure that I eat at least one vegetable from this group every day, either in a salad and/or as a side dish. 

I've used broccolini/ tenderstem broccoli for this omelette - this is the type of broccoli I tend to always have at home - but ordinary broccoli will obviously work just as well. Just add some of the stem as well if you use ordinary broccoli.

As you can se in the photo I serve the omelette with sliced red bell peppers, parsley and some avocado. I also serve it with toasted sourdough bread.

Red bell peppers are one of the richest dietary sources of vitamin C. They are also a very good source of other vitamins and minerals. I buy the pointed variety as these are usually tastier than other types of red peppers.

Avocados are a very healthy type of fruit, rich in healthy, essential fats, fibre and a variety of vitamins and minerals. 

Parsley is very low in calories and a rich source of vitamins A, C and K, as well as several different minerals.

To fill you up and be healthy, any meal you eat should preferably contain a mix of protein, carbs and healthy fats. This broccoli and Parmesan omelette served with red bell peppers, avocado and parsley perfectly fits the bill.

Eggs are great source of protein, as well as being rich in different nutrients.

Parmesan cheese is rich in both calcium and protein and is a type of cheese that is easy to digest.
