Spinach, Feta and Roasted Vegetable Omelette

Print

I find omelettes are a great way to use up leftovers in the fridge. For this omelette I used up some leftover roasted vegetables. I used carrot, courgette (zucchini), red and yellow sweet peppers, which I had tossed in olive oil and Italian seasoning, and roasted for 30 minutes at  350 degrees F.  

Further Food Commentary:

Omelettes are a great way to add veggies to your morning routine. They make a quick, hot, satisfying breakfast that leaves you feeling satisfied until lunch. Adding egg whites add an additional protein boost. Feta has a strong kick, so it’s a great way to add a lot of flavor without a ton of saturated fat.
