Courgette Omelette Recipe

Preparation time: 10 minutes

1 small courgette, shredded
2-3 eggs
A pinch of salt
2 tbsps cooking oil

(Optional) Herbs of Provence or black pepper

1. Shred the courgette, whisk the eggs, and combine both together.

2. You can let it rest for a minute, and then pour it on your frying pan to make an omelette.
You can use a food processor to shred the courgette, or a hand grater, and you don’t need to take off the peel. When you grate the courgette in very thin slices, there is not need to cook it in advance, and by letting them soak a little bit with the eggs, the whole mixture becomes more tender and juicy.

Additionally, if you have more time, you can also double the quantities and cook it in the oven instead, at 180o for 10 minutes, covering it with some cheese for an extra touch!
