Recipe: Rooftop vegetables omelette

Omelettes and egg recipes with herbs
February 03, 2012

Vegetables and herbs grown in my rooftop always amaze me. Throughout the summer I harvested greens for fresh salads, and with the autumn sowing of mizuna, komatsuna and semposai I had fresh harvests even during the autumn.

ChardsDuring winter my greens have less, smaller leaves, and I had the last small harvest before the spring. After all my rooftop salads of last summer I create a new recipe that of course I called... rooftop omelette.

I harvested a lot of semposai and mizuna, which is still green and lush. I added several small leaves of raibow chards and rhubarb chards, and a few leaves of sorrel. I love this plant, it really deserved some rest after all the sorrel recipes prepared last year.

Rooftop vegetables omelette

1 cup greens
2 eggs
3-4 tbsp milk

Cut vegetables into strips and stir-fry in butter for a couple of minutes.
Beat eggs with milk, then add the sauteed vegetables.
Put in a pan and cook the omelette normally, turning halfway through cooking.

I used the chards, mizuna, sorrel and semposai, but I also suggest komatsuna and pak choi, or other vegetables of your choice.
I served the omelet with some mustard scones that I will post soon.
