Cooking has never been my forte. In fact, it terrifies me. But as I mentioned before, although I may have a fear, I still muster through to face it. So, now that I am experiencing this culinary re-birth, my plan is to, proudly, share my accomplishments with my readers.
For my first victorious creation…I bring you “Janice’s healthy omelet” (or omelette, if you prefer the French spelling). I know it’s not a very creative name. I couldn’t come up with anything catchy. I needed an alternative to my favorite diner classic, the Western omelet. So what the heck…I’ll call it a “Jersey Girl” omelette.
So here it is:
3 eggs (2 egg whites, 1 whole with yolk)
2 tablespoons Stop N’ Shop fresh mild salsa (found in the produce aisle)
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (adds a cheesy taste)
½ teaspoon Goya Adobo
After beating the eggs, add the salsa and mix. Pour the mixture into skillet and let cook until the edges look done. Sprinkle Adobo and nutritional yeast. Fold over into half circle. Cook to your taste (I like mine very well done).
Slice avocado for garnish or put right on top (I have to give Jenna Vadas credit for adding the avocado).
