Mediterranean Omelette with Tahini

Ingredients

2 organic eggs

1 TBSP milk

2 TBS olive oil

1 green onion chopped

5 cherry tomatoes halved 

2 shiitake or button mushrooms thinly sliced 

2 TBSP Sesame kingdom tahini sauce 

Pinch of salt and black pepper

Optional: 1/3 can sardines 

Preparation

Whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a small bowl until well blended

Add chopped green onion, halved cherry tomatoes and sliced mushrooms to eggs, and lightly mix with a fork

Heat 1 TBSP olive oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat until hot

Pour in egg mixture and tilt pan until mixture coats the entire bottom

Use a spatula to gently drag and push cooked egg mixture from the edges towards the center of the pan, making space for the uncooked eggs. Tilt pan so that the uncooked eggs flow into the open spaces.

When top surface thickens and no egg liquid is visible, place sardines across one side of the omelet and drizzle 1 TBSP tahini sauce on top.

Gently fold the omelet in half, cover pan with a lid and turn off heat. Let sit for a few minutes.

Plating

Gently slide omelet into a plate. Drizzle 1 TBSP Sesame Kingdom tahini sauce on top and garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
