When you combine caramelized onions and zucchini with eggs and grated cheeses into this zucchini omelet you get a healthy meal that is very light and delicious tasting! Nothing fancy, and no fuss at all, just a dish that is simple, easy and decadent!
  • 2 medium zucchini- chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil - divided
  • 2 garlic cloves - sliced
  • 1 large onion- chopped
  • ¼ tsp. dried parsley
  • salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. grated pecorino cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. grated parmesan cheese
  1. In a large or medium size non-stick skillet, and on medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, garlic and chopped onions. Saute for about 2 minutes, until the onions are softened.
  2. Add chopped zucchini and saute zucchini for a few minutes until the zucchini is cooked and softened, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat. Set aside to cool for a few minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, lightly scramble 3 eggs in a mixing bowl. Transfer the zucchini into the eggs, add the grated cheeses and stir until well combined.
  4. Using the same skillet (and no need to clean it), heat on medium heat, and add the additional tablespoon of olive oil. When the oil is hot, gently pour in the egg and zucchini mixture and lower the heat to low. Gently shake the skillet to make sure the omelet isn't sticking to the bottom. Simmer on lowest heat for 2 to 3 minutes, or more if needed (it's a thicker omelet).
  5. Use a spatula and gently lift one side of the omelet to see if the eggs are golden brown, and not burning. When the eggs on the bottom are cooked (not loose or running).
  6. Then use a small plate, one that is about the same size of skillet and turn it over and on top of the omelet, the hold your hand on top of the plate and carefully flip over the omelet onto the plate. Then slide the omelet back into the skillet to finish cooking, additional 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. Remove and cut into pieces and serve.
  8. Yields: 2 to 3 servings
