Step by Step Method

Step 1

In a medium sized bowl, lightly beat the eggs.

Step 2

Stir in the olives, parsley, caraway and cumin. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Heat the oil in a very hot non-stick frying pan.

Step 4

Pour the mixture into the pan, move the pan to distribute evenly and leave for 7 seconds without stirring.

Step 5

Tilt the pan and move the cooked egg to the center with a spatula, allowing the uncooked egg to replace the cooked egg. When there is the hint of uncooked egg left, fold the omelette in half and transfer to a warm platter; sprinkle with paprika and tarragon.

Step 6

Cut into 2 or 3 pieces and serve immediately.

I loved this omelet - it is perfect for brunch or for a lite dinner. I cut the recipe back to 2 eggs (one serving) with no problem. The hint of caraway & cumin sets the flavour apart from others. This will be made again for sure.
