- 10g butter
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic finely chopped
- 2 thinly sliced ginger finely chopped
- half small onion finely chopped
- 50g maitake mushrooms torn by hand to coarse pieces
- 50g hon shimeji mushrooms ends trimmed
- 100g enoki mushrooms ends trimmed, cut to half
- 1 tsp oyster sauce
- 1/4 tsp Italian seasoning (or any dried herbs blend)
- salt & pepper (blend) to taste
Ingredients for one omelette (this recipe makes 2 omelettes)
- 5 grams butter
- 1 egg beaten and seasoned with a light dash of S&P blend
- generous handful shredded cheese (such as mozzarella, or pizza cheese)
- ready-to-eat salad mix
- cherry tomatoes
- 1/2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
- Cook the mushrooms. Heat butter and oil in a 20cm nonstick pan. Fry the garlic, ginger and onions until the latter starts to soften. Add maitake mushrooms and hon shimeji mushrooms. Stir fry until the mushrooms start to soften. Add enoki mushrooms, oyster sauce and Italian seasoning. Stir fry until the oyster sauce is well mixed and the mushrooms are cooked. Season to taste with salt & pepper blend. (Note: Check out the step-by-step photos here) Set aside on a plate, dividing the cooked mushrooms into two portions. Carefully wipe the pan clean with kitchen paper towels.
- Making each omelette. Clean the pan with kitchen paper. Heat the pan and grease it with 5g butter. Pour the beaten egg into the pan and swirl the pan to distribute the egg evenly. Cover with lid and cook briefly until the omelette is just set with still some raw egg on top. Reduce the pan to a low heat. Add 1 portion of mixed mushrooms (reserve 1 tbsp for garnish) followed by shredded cheese on slightly more than half of the omelette. Cover with lid again and cook on low heat until the cheese is just melted. Loosen the edges of the omelette with a spatula and fold the omelette over.
- Serve. Slide the omelette into a serving plate. Garnish the omelette with 1 tbsp mushrooms and parsley flakes. Serve with side salad. Repeat step 2 to make another omelette with the remaining mushrooms.
- Use low or medium low heat when cooking the egg to minimise large pock marks and to retain the bright yellow hue on the omelette.
- You can omit the cheese if you prefer not to add them.
- You can use a variety of mushrooms or even one type of mushroom to make this omelette.
- You can use any salad dressing you have in your kitchen for the simple side salad.
