Garden Fresh Omelette

Potato, Leek and Herb Omelette


Garden omelette recipe

On a Friday night we often have an omelette for dinner. It is quick to make at the end of a (long) week.  During Winter leek, potato and fresh herbs make a hearty addition to the omelette. In Summer we tend to use zucchini, tomato, capsicum and herbs that are in season in the warmer months. The beauty of this type of dish is that you can use what ever you have on available.  It makes a great dinner at the end of the week when there are “bits and pieces” left over in the fridge, or left on the bench from the week’s garden harvest.

Fresh garden Winter omelette made with ingredients picked fresh from my garden. A quick healthy vegetarian dinner.
Recipe type: Main
Serves: 2-3
  • extra virgin olive oil - a dash
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary - chopped
  • 1 sprig of fresh sage - torn
  • 2 stems of lemon thyme - chopped
  • handful of fresh parsley leaves - chopped
  • 1 leek - finely chopped
  • 4 small potatoes boiled and thinly chopped
  • 7-8 eggs lightly whisked
  • salt and pepper
  • shaved Parmesan
  • fresh rocket leaves
  1. To a heated pan add a dash of olive oil - I use a wok
  2. Add the fresh herbs and the leeks
  3. Stir until softened
  4. Add the potato to the pan and allow it to start to color
  5. Add salt and pepper and then pour over the eggs
  6. Cook on a low to medium heat until the eggs have nearly set
  7. When the eggs are almost set fold the omelette over to allow the eggs to finalise cooking and remove from the pan
  8. Top with freshly shaved parmesan cheese and fresh rocket leaves
The recipe may be halved and used to make two separate omelettes. One at a time.

      Thanks Jennifer, I appreciate your feedback. It is one of our favorite combinations at the moment since I have so many leeks to use.

    I love your omelette! Hens everywhere would be putting their feathers up to lay eggs for it. 🙂

      What a beautiful comment! Thanks Maureen. I wish my hens would get a wiggle on 🙂 they are still pre-laying age. I am looking forward to cooking with fresh eggs. Thanks for reading. K
