Served warm or cold, this omelette is really delicious. As it is quite substantial, cut it in wedges like cake and eat it with some of the following salads.


  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 675 g/1Β½ lb spinach, washed, drained and shredded seasoning to taste
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 3 tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten


    Fry the onion in the oil until golden. Add the spinach, seasoning, nutmeg and tomatoes and stir until the spinach crumples. Mix the eggs in gently and cook covered over a very low heat for about 10-15 minutes until they set. Put under a grill or broiler to dry the top, then turn out.
