Ingredients

Vegetable Omelet:
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 basil fresh leaves 
  • 5 medium asparagus spears, bottom inch of stem trimmed
  • 6 shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced 
  • 6 grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika 
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds 
  • Kosher salt  
  • 3 eggs 
  • 1 tablespoon dried fenugreek leaves 
  • 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese 
Crisp Lettuce Salad:
  • 3 cups roughly chopped red leaf lettuce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 teaspoon of paprika 
  • Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

For the omelet: Heat 1/4 cup of the oil in a small skillet over medium heat. When oil is hot add the basil leaves and fry for about 30 seconds per side until crispy but still green in color. Remove to a plate lined with a paper towel. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the oil.

Transfer the reserved oil to a large skillet over medium heat. Add the asparagus and cook until bright green and slightly tender, about 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and saute until slightly softened, about 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, paprika, fennel and salt to taste. Cook until the tomatoes are heated through, about 2 minutes longer.

While the vegetables are cooking, whisk the eggs in a medium bowl. Add the fenugreek and a pinch of salt.

Heat an omelet pan or small nonstick saute pan over medium-low heat. Add the remaining 2 tablespoon of oil. Pour in the eggs and cook until the bottom is set but there is still a pool of uncooked eggs on top, 2 to 3 minutes. Lift up the bottom of the omelet with a spatula, allowing the uncooked eggs to flow back into the pan. Quickly add the cooked vegetables and goat cheese to the uncooked egg and invert the cooked egg over the vegetables. Cook until the eggs in the bottom of the pan are just set, about another 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and garnish with the fried basil leaves.

For the crisp lettuce salad: Combine the lettuce, oil, lemon juice, paprika and salt and pepper to taste in a bowl. Toss to coat. Serve with the omelet.
