“When I made this, the original title of the recipe was Eat Your Greens Omelette. I gave one serving to my taste tester and he took one look at it and said “This is a green egg!” This is how it got its official name. There is some work involved but it is worth it in the end. For sautéing the vegetables I used olive oil, but you can use any kind of oil you like.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sauté the shallots and spinach for about 5 minutes. Set aside in a small bowl and then sauté the green pepper and broccoli for 5 minutes. (I did it this way, because it was easier than doing one at a time.).
  2. In a small break 3 eggs and mix very well with a fork. Melt the butter or margarine in a frying pan, on medium high heat and then add the eggs.
  3. Very quickly add two tbsp spinach, some pine nuts (the amount is up to you depending on how much you or your loved ones like pine nuts), 2 tsp shallot, two tbsp green pepper, 2 tbsp broccoli. Sprinkle Gouda cheese over the egg and vegetables, and let set for about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Flip over half the omelette and continue to cook for another 2 minutes. Repeat two more times.
  5. Serve warm.
