Scrambled omelet in case you’re tired of the usual one

Tonight I had the house to myself, and that called for a late dinner. Lately I’ve been writing down ideas for recipes that I want to try. This time I decided to make what I call a scrambled potato and apple omelet topped with sautéed spinach, orange zest and licorice powder, and it was really good. I had intended to “sprinkle” feta cheese over it, when it was finished cooking, but I forgot to buy it, so yeah… It was good anyway.

What you need for 1:

  • 2 big handful of fresh spinach (You can use frozen too, but I prefer my fresh vegetables)
  • 1-2 clove of garlic depending on the size
  • 2 potatoes
  • 1/2 apple
  • A bit of orange zest to sprinkle
  • Licorice powder (can be left out, but it’s wonderful)
  • 1 big egg
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • Salt and pepper
  • Butter for the pan

Start by peeling both potatoes and apple and thinly slice it afterwards. Butter and heat up a pan and roast the potatoes for about 5 minutes or until golden (take off when done). While roasting, wash spinach and heat up a saucepan with butter and garlic and then sauté the spinach. Mix egg, milk, salt and pepper in a bowl on the side. Then place both apples and potatoes in the pan and pour over the egg batter. Fry on high heat for 2-3 minutes before lowering the heat, so the egg won’t burn. Then you start “scrambling” – turn the omelet in several pieces, so it all mixed. When it’s done cooking place the omelet on a place and top with the spinach, orange zest and just a little bit of licorice powder as well as feta cheese, if you remembered it at the store haha 🙂

Recipe for two persons.

You will need:

  • 2 chicken pieces
  • About 6 potatoes (depends on how much you eat)
  • 7 whole asparagus
  • Half a leek
  • Some cauliflower
  • 2-3 carrots
  • Half a red pebber
  • Salt and pebber
  • Paprika
  • Olive oil
  • Butter or oil for the pan

Okay, so now make sure that you have all the ingredients. Of course if theres one of the vegetables that you dont like or just can’t get, substitute it. Apples are also really good in this recipe!

You start by preparing the potatoes – peel them and cut them in half or quarters. But them in a bowl or a bag, pour over some oil and season it with salt and peber. Then put them in a preheated oven of 200°C (395°F).

Clean and cut the vegetables in edible pieces. Make sure to have them all ready.

Get the chicken out. Clean it and put it on a preheated and buttery pan. Season them with salt, pebber and paprika and cook them until tender. While cooking, get another pan going and pour in the vegetables. When tender and with a bit to it, season them with salt. And wupsi the meal is ready to serve.

Now if this is a family dinner, it is great serving with elderflower juice. If for a casual dinner with friends, please do serve with a class of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Tomorrow is cake day, so make sure to stay updated!
Until next time – have a great monday!
