Fluffy and wholesome mushroom omelette

Mushroom Omelette without cheese

This mushroom omelette is fluffy, super healthy and can be thrown together quick and easy. It is lovely as a wholesome breakfast or light dinner with few calories. Mushrooms are the new superfood and are packed with flavour enhancers. They are healthy because of the nutrients they contain, proteins, vitamins, fibre etc and those that don’t contain cholesterol, gluten etc.

Eggs on their own part are also nutrient-dense, with proteins, vitamins, minerals, omega-3, cholesterol etc. The combination of mushroom and egg make this omelette super healthy and extra special.

You can vary the vegetables and mushrooms depending on what you have at home, I had chopped celery in mine. The butter can be replaced with olive oil. I used white button mushrooms but cremini mushrooms will also be excellent.

2 tablespoons chopped onions
