Spring onion and chilli cheese omelette

Main Serves 1 10 min
Don't leave the last spring onion languishing in the fridge – use it to pep up an omelette for a quick lunch or supper. This is an easily adapted formula: throw in a few cooked broccoli florets if you have them, or some green beans or sliver of courgette.


  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil (or other oil suitable for light frying)
  • 1 spring onion, finely chopped
  • ½ fresh red chilli, de-seeded and chopped, or a pinch of dried ground chilli or flakes
  • 25g Cheddar, grated


Prep time: 5 min
Cooking time: 5 min
  • Step 1

    In a bowl, season the beaten eggs with salt and pepper.
  • Step 2

    Heat the oil in a small frying pan. Add the spring onion and chilli and fry for a few seconds.
  • Step 3

    Add the eggs and keep them moving around the pan with a fork until three quarters cooked.
  • Step 4

    Sprinkle over the cheese. Carefully fold the omelette over with a palette or spatula and serve.
