Jump straight to the recipe!

I started by pre-cooking the vegetables in a pan with a little oil. The spray oil in a can is the best kind if you are watching your calories. I used spring onions, red pepper, white onion and garlic puree. Then I fried them until they were soft.

I used a rectangular dish to bake my omelette in and I brushed it with oil first to ensure the omelette didn’t stick. I find a rectangular dish better as square pieces of baked omelette are easier to portion.

To make the Baked Vegetable Omelette I whisked together eggs, egg whites (for recipe to use up the egg yolks click here) and semi-skimmed milk. You can season with salt and pepper at this point to your liking.

I tipped the vegetables into the dish, then poured in the egg mixture. I sprinkled parmesan cheese over the top.

It baked for 35 minutes until the omelette was golden and didn’t have a wobble to it anymore.

I like to eat this Baked Vegetable Omelette with salad and cous cous. When it’s fully cooled you can cut the Baked Vegetable Omelette into squares and you will get 6 good sized portions from it. It can be frozen too and defrosted overnight – perfect to grab and go for lunchtime!
