Omelettes and egg recipes with herbs
January 28, 2010

When I cook a dish that uses many aromatic herbs, I really enjoy to harvest them from my garden: it makes me so proud!

Mint and chivesYou can change the aromatic herbs in this recipe, but don't forget to use mint, because it adds the middle-eastern touch to this iranian omelette.
