Omelet with Cheese, Tomato and Arugula

I didn’t grown Arugula in my garden this year and I have to admit I regret that. All parts of the plant are edible including the seeds, pods and flowers. Next year Arugula will be a must have!

Many of our meals just lately have included Arugula either in the dish or as a nice side salad. Its delicate leaves make an attractive topper for this omelet we made for dinner. The slightly bitter taste was a lovely contrast to the sweetness of the tomatoes.

Omelets are a nice quick meal that is extremely versatile and unless you don’t or can’t eat eggs its a perfect one “pot” dish. This recipe hits everything you need for a satisfying meal. It has your dairy, leafy greens and lots of protein.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
