A veggie-stuffed omelet makes for one easy, satisfying dinner when paired with a simple side salad. While the cooked spinach mixture sits, it may give off some more liquid; strain this off to keep the omelet from becoming watery.

INGREDIENTS

 

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, 1/2 cup chopped shallots, 3 garlic cloves, minced 1 (8-ounce) package sliced white mushrooms, 1 thyme sprig, 6 ounces fresh baby spinach, 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided; 3/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided; 8 large eggs, divided; 1 tablespoon butter, divided

 

HOW TO MAKE IT 

Step 1

Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add shallots, garlic, mushrooms, and thyme; sauté 7 minutes or until mushrooms are browned. Add spinach; sauté 4 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates. Remove mixture from pan; discard thyme sprig. Wipe pan clean.

Step 2

Combine 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, and 4 eggs in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Return pan to medium heat. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons butter; swirl to coat. Add egg mixture; cook 1 minute. Lift edges of omelet with a rubber spatula, tilting pan to roll uncooked egg onto bottom of pan. Cook 1 minute or until center just begins to set but is still very soft. Arrange half of mushroom mixture over middle of omelet; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Run spatula around edges and under omelet to loosen from the pan; fold in half. Slide omelet onto a plate. Repeat procedure with remaining ingredients. Cut omelets in half.
