Courgette & Mint Omelette

Courgette and mint are classic partners and a salty cheese like pecorino lifts their flavours even more. This quick and tasty omelette can be served as part of a healthy breakfast, brunch, lunch or even as a light supper. Adding raw courgette slivers to the egg-mixture gives the omelette a nice crunch and perfectly ripe, juicy tomatoes provide an attractive colour contrast and a hint of sweetness.


Ingredients (for 2):

4 eggs

1/2 courgette, coarsely grated

a handful of fresh mint leaves, finely chopped

a chunk of pecorino cheese, finely grated

black pepper

olive oil

extra sea salt

some chopped fresh tomatoes on the side


  • Beat the eggs in a bowl.
  • Add the grated courgette, pecorino, pepper and finely chopped mint.
  • Heat a bit of olive oil in a flat frying pan.
  • Fry the omelette for a few minutes on one side and when it’s just sturdy enough slide it onto a plate, turn the plate over in the pan and fry the other side of the omelette.
  • Serve when it is golden brown on the outside but still has a slightly gooey centre.
  • Drizzle with a little extra olive oil and some coarse sea salt and serve with chopped fresh tomatoes.
