Spinach Protein Omelette

Author: Herbalife Nutrition
Healthy spinach omlette breakfast recipe for extra protein.

With a number of us are now working from home and running shifts, one thing we now have is more time even though it can be challenging! More time in the morning to have a sit-down breakfast that you would usually miss due to rush hour to beat traffic in the mornings. This recipe is easy, tasty and makes for a perfect light meal. Add your vegetables and protein to create a flavoursome omelette that you’ll want to eat again and again!

Serves: 5
Prep time: 30 minutes
Ingredients:
  • 20 g Herbalife Nutrition Personalized Protein Powder
  • 125 g fat free Greek yoghurt (do not use regular yoghurt)
  • 4 egg whites
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 30 g plain flour
  • 55 g frozen spinach (thawed)
  • 2 tbsp white chia seeds
  • 1 tsp salt
Method:
  1. Put the yoghurt, egg whites and water into a food processor or blender. Add flour, Herbalife Nutrition Personalized Protein Powder, spinach, chia seeds and salt. Blend thoroughly until the mixture has the consistency of pancake batter.*
  2. Spray a small non-stick skillet with non-stick pan spray (or wipe with a little bit of oil). Heat the pan over medium-high heat.
  3. When the pan is hot, pour 3 tbsp of batter and quickly (and very gently) spread the batter with back of a metal spoon into a 5-6” circle. Let the omelette cook on one side until it is lightly browned. Gently turn and cook until the other side until it is lightly browned.
  4. When both sides are brown, place on paper towels or a cooling rack and leave to cool. Repeat this process with the remaining batter and spray the pan with non-stick spray, before cooking a new omelette, to stop it from sticking.

 

*Chia seeds soak up a lot of liquid: especially if you let the mixture sit! It’s best to prepare the batter right before you make the omelette. If the batter is getting thicker, while you are cooking, add some water to loosen it. Use one tablespoon at a time (be careful not to add too much) to maintain the pancake batter-like consistency.
