I often play a game with myself in the kitchen- it’s “let’s see what I can make with ingredients I already have.” So, yesterday morning I was craving something healthy after a night of bourbons the previous evening. I needed some POWERFOOD!
I always keep greens on hand, and in this case I decided to use my favorite- kale! This recipe was so simple and quick!
Tip: I decided to use light cottage cheese to help liven the omelette up and add some creamy texture. If you have large curd cottage cheese, I would suggest rinsing it in a colander. (My grandma used to do this to her cottage cheese when I was little and I always thought it was strange-but it was a good trick in this instance!) Once heated, the excess water in the cottage cheese runs out of the omelette causing a runny mess.
The ingredients are listed below.
- Green Kale
- Liquid egg whites, or whites from 3 eggs
- Truffled salt (SECRET INGREDIENT!! My sister brought me this home from France.) Just one tiny pinch will do- this stuff is potent!
- Cottage Cheese
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Olive oil, non-non stick pan
This turned out nice and light, perfect for a pre-workout breakfast.
I hope you enjoy!
