Here’s a sumptuous omelette to start your day on the right note! The Veg Cheese Omelette is made by pan-cooking (like pancakes) a mixture of eggs and chopped veggies, seasoned excitingly with dried herbs and green chillies.

A topping of cheese adds a gooey dimension to the omelette, making it more filling and cheesily exciting. Although it is made with only common ingredients and everyday veggies like tomatoes and capsicum, the flavours and textures mingle really well to create a zesty bite that you are sure to relish thoroughly.
