Mushroom Omelette

Breakfast has to be one of my favourite meals of the day, actually every meal is my favourite, breakfast just tops the list 🙂 . When it comes to breakfast meals I mostly gravitate towards pancakes or omelettes. Today’s recipe is a simple mushroom omelette.

I love mushrooms and great thing is my daughter loves them too thus the motivation to make them is strong.

When I’m buying mushrooms, I try to look for the pack that has the cleanest of ‘shrooms. This is because I try my best to avoid the mushrooms from coming into contact with water. Mushrooms have a way of soaking up water and you might think you want to saute them till browned and they end up being steamed.

Sadly the pack I had wasn’t the cleanest. For these mushrooms, I indivually ran the mushrooms under the tap then using my fingers I gently rubbed off the dirt and placed them on paper towels to absorb any residual water.

In the event your mushrooms are fairly clean,  you can use a dry paper towel and wipe them individually or use a gentle dry brush to clean off any dusty parts.

Now to saute the mushrooms, the secret again is to not overcrowd the pan lest you end up with steamed mushrooms. Sauteing in batches helps. Plus when the pan isn’t crowded it takes about 3 to 5 minutes to saute.

In a pan, over medium heat add some olive oil and then the first batch of mushrooms.

Now to work on the eggs, I worked with very few ingredients just the eggs, salt, black pepper and some sliced basil leaves.

Add some sliced green onions.

mushroom-omelette-leotunapika-14There you have it a simple mushroom omelette. Don’t forget the green onions,they add a beautiful crunch and taste to the whole meal.

Perfect side to your favourite morning beverage, mine is milk.

I love making, plating and eating pancakes.

These plantain pancakes are such a crowd pleaser. I love to serve with some butterscotch sauce and pan fried plantain slices. Delicious.

I was gifted some salmon by @ibrahims_butchery and I made it for dinner.
They currently have an offer on salmon. 

It's my first time making salmon, yep! 

It's a play on garlic butter salmon though I used olive oil instead since I didn't have butter.

Absolutely delicious.

I served with lyonnaise potatoes (recipe on my feed) and some garlicky french beans (recipe in my cookbook)
