Grecian Omelet with Spinach, Chickpeas, and Feta Cheese

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs, whisked
  • 1 large handful spinach
  • ¼ cup chickpeas
  • crumbled feta cheese
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly cracked black pepper
  • Extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  1. In a nonstick pan lightly heat up about a tablespoon of olive oil. Ensure that pan is coated, and add your spinach. Cook until wilted. Season with salt and pepper
  2. Add whisked eggs and chickpeas. Using a spatula slowly bring the four corners of the pan into the middle, like the directions of a compass (top, bottom, right, and left), allowing the uncooked eggs to move underneath your cooked eggs. Do this until slightly dry. Add crumbled feta cheese.
  3. Put pan into a hot oven for about 2 minutes to finish cooking. This will give you the perfect amount of time to get a plate, toast some toast, and pour yourself some juice or coffee.
  4. Remove the pan from the oven and gently slide the omelet out of the pan and fold it over!
