Laura’s Lunch Ideas: Omelette for Lunch!

Omelette for Lunch

From my séjour in France I learned to enjoy a hearty lunch like les français.  We (the americans) used to speculate whether or not eating a hearty lunch contributed to the perfect build of French women.  Whether or not, it’s always a good idea to stock up on healthy veggies and good protein for your big meals of the day!

For this lunch I used:

1/2 red onion

1 small zucchini

1 tsp herbes de Provence seasoning (lavender, rosemary, oregano, basil etc)

1/2 avocado

1 egg

pinch of salt

drip of olive oil

Heat up your frying pan first (I like to use our smallest one for washing convenience) then add just enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan.  Sauté onion and zucchini for a minute before adding the herbes de Provence and the salt.

Cooking with herbs right off the bat brings more flavor to the meal–the heat releases the flavor during the cooking process.

Scramble the egg and pour over vegetables.  Mix and stir over heat until egg has been thoroughly cooked.

NB: This is not a real omelette in the real sense–my father calls it a lazy man’s omelette.  It’s that easy!

Serve with peeled avocado.
