Silver beet omelette with capsicum salad


  • 260 grams chargrilled red capsicum, sliced thickly
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 medium stalks silverbeet
  • 10 free-range eggs
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) milk
  • 2 clove garlic, extra, crushed
  • 3 cup (350g) firmly packed snow pea tendrils
  • 1/2 cup (40g) shaved pecorino cheese


Combine capsicum, thyme, garlic, vinegar and oil in a large bowl; stand for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, cut stems from silverbeet; shred leaves. Whisk eggs, milk, shredded silverbeet and extra garlic in a large bowl; season.

Heat a small non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Pour one-quarter of the egg mixture into pan; tilt pan to cover base with egg mixture.

Cook over medium heat for three minutes or until omelette is just set.

Carefully slide omelette onto plate; cover to keep warm.

Repeat with remaining egg mixture to make four omelettes in total.

Add snow pea tendrils and pecorino to capsicum mixture; toss to combine.

Serve omelettes topped with capsicum salad.
