California omelette


With the month long fast of Purtassi upon us and the Navartri fast around the corner and Diwali after that, my mind hasn’t really been focused on breakfast, it is more on sweetmeats. It is that time, when all the recipes have to be tried and tested and tested again and decorated differently for Diwali.

A couple of mornings back my dad was complaining that he is tired of eating All bran flakes his regular enough.

Tired of his complaining, since men do complain more I decided to make something of substance for his breakfast plate.

I remember reading about an omelette that had micro greens and whenever I go to the store I always forget to buy microgreens, but somehow there was a container with microgreens in them, hint hint that was a sign that I should try this omelette.

My dad was like what is this salad his eating, he can be sooo dramatic, it wasn’t even a teaspoon of greens just a scattering. I think he was wearing his reading glasses when he saw the breakfast and everything was magnified if you ask me.
