Asparagus Stuffed Omlete

At our house Asparagus is a all time winner, as Abhi loves this veggie I will try to sneak in every possible way. Usually Asparagus is very expensive, but some times when this is abundant in season it will be on sale. Now is the time for that, as I have seen this on sale in Sprouts, I have been buying this every week. Or Some times I get this big bunch from Costco in bulk.

Today I have stuffed this veggie in omelet and served with apple slices.

Asparagus Strings- 3
Egg - 1
Onion - 1 Tbsp
Bell Pepper -1 Tbsp
Black Pepper - 1/4 tsp
Oil - 1tsp

1. Microwave the Asparagus strings for 30 sec to 1 min. It should be soft and crunchy.
2. Whisk the egg in a small bowl and by adding onion, bell pepper and black pepper.
3. Heat the Nonstick omelet pan and add oil to it
4. Once the oil is hot, pour the egg mixture and let it set for a min.
5. Once you start seeing the mixture is getting set on upside also, then add the asparagus strings on top and fold the omelet.
6. Turn the omelet on other side and cook for 30 sec.
7. Take if off from the heat and cut in half and serve with apple slices.

Now tell your kids that this is the letter A Veggie and Fruit plate. Just tell that and see next time when you serve something your kiddo will tell you what plate it is. :-)

Don't think I have forgotten salt in the ingredients. Purposefully I haven't added any. The crunchy vegetables won't let you miss the salt in this dish. Don't believe me, give it a try.
