Spice up your life & fuel up with a delicious ‘not so ordinary’ omelette.


  • 500g new potatoes
  • onion, preferably white
  • 1 broccoli or your fav veg
  • 150ml extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • eggs


  • STEP 1
    Scrape the new potatoes or leave the skins on, if you prefer. Cut them into thick slices. Chop the onion.
  • STEP 2
    Heat the extra-virgin olive oil in a large frying pan, add the potatoes and onion and stew gently, partially covered, for 30 mins, stirring occasionally until the potatoes are softened. Strain the potatoes and onion through a colander into a large bowl (set the strained oil aside).
  • STEP 3
    Beat the eggs separately, then stir into the potatoes with the parsley and plenty of salt and pepper. Heat a little of the strained oil in a smaller pan.
  • STEP 4
    Tip everything into the pan and cook on a moderate heat, using a spatula to shape the omelette into a cushion. Add some of your fav herbs or spices to make it extra tasty.
  • STEP 5
    When almost set, invert on a plate and slide back into the pan and cook a few more minutes.
  • STEP 6
    Invert twice more, cooking the omelette briefly each time and pressing the edges to keep the cushion shape. Slide on to a plate and cool for 10 mins before serving.
