Spinach Tomato Omelet

I know there myths about spinach and tomato combination as it forms kidney stones etc etc, but I don't believe in those things. Any thing if you overdo it it reacts. The rumor is because of the high iron content in both spinach and tomato, and hence the combo is not good. That is true only if you eat this for 3 meals a day and 7 days a week. which I am sure you are not going to do. :-) So leave all those myths back and enjoy this omelet for the breakfast. Here is the recipe, Enjoy!

p.s: I do make spinach and tomato curry that also tastes so good. 

Egg - 1
Spinach - 1/2 cup
Tomato - 1 medium ( Roma)
Dry Basil - 1 tsp
Olive Oil - 1 tsp
salt - 1/4 tsp
black pepper - 1/8 tsp
paprika - 1/4 tsp


  1. Whisk together egg, salt, black pepper, paprika in a medium bowl and set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in non-stick pan.
  3. Add chopped spinach to the pan and saute for 1 min ( or until the leaves get wilted)
  4. Pour the egg mixture on top of spinach in the pan. (make sure the egg is all around spinach and covers it complete)
  5. let the egg cook and become firm.
  6. Now chop your tomato into circles. and place these circles on top of omelet. and sprinkle the basil on top. Let it cook for 1 min, by this time, egg gets cooked completely and omelet forms already.
  7. Now fold it carefully into the middle and serve this as breakfast.

it is so flavorful as it is, but you can slide this in to croissant or in between toasted bread slices to have a complete meal for breakfast.

Have a great weekend, Enjoy!
