|French Bean Omelette|
Hello everyone! I hope you had a lovely festive season and I wish you and your loved ones a very happy 2014.As this is my first post in 2014 and it is a Monday, you guessed it, time for a Meatless Monday post.
One of my closest friends came over from Malaysia to visit me during the festive season. We had so much fun entertaining him and we went to York and Edinburgh. It was my first time in Edinburgh and it must be one of the nicest cities I have ever visited. The streets just ooze history and character. They also have very good steak and ale pies. Apart from that we also had friends over a couple of nights at home too and all that translates to more glorious food! With all the travelling, cooking and eating, I managed to gain 2kg in the last 3 weeks. I must now begin my quest to work of that excess weight and make my fat cry. Although, I do believe that I will end up crying before my fat does.
Coming back to the recipe of the day, I have for you a French Bean Omelette recipe. I must say this is a very Chinese version and it is very much a dish that I grew up eating. No butter required and I love that you combine the French beans and whisked egg together. It’s always good to have an extra serving of vegetables! Additionally, the french beans add a nice crunch to the omelette. Eat this with an extra side of stir fried vegetables and some brown rice. This dish is so easy and tasty, I just know you will love it.
