Vegetarian Western Omelette with Spiralized Bell Peppers

Recently I asked you all what kinds of recipes you’d like to see on Inspiralized next year (and for the rest of this year, of course.)

Most of you said “quick and easy recipes”, but I was surprsied by how many requested side dishes, desserts and more breakfasts.

I love to hear that, because I love a good spiralized breakfast! Today, I’m sharing this vegetarian version of a western omelette, using spiralized bell peppers and onions.

I have to admit, I’m pretty lazy with my breakfasts during the week. Weekday mornings are just packed with to-dos, and I find that it’s easier to eat something quick at my desk than take 20 minutes out of my morning to cook something (and then clean!)

Thus, I tend to eat the same breakfasts every day – a smoothie, an acai bowl, oatmeal with peanut butter and jelly, or avocado toast.

However, on the weekends, I take pride in my breakfasts. I’m either out to brunch or making something that takes a bit more time (and thus, is much more delicious!)

One of my favorite omelettes to order out is a western omelette, but I usually always ask for it without ham, and the servers looks at me like I have three heads.

I just LOVE bell peppers, onions, and eggs together. So, since this is my blog, and some of you have requested more breakfast recipes, here’s my version of a western omelette, gone vegetarian – and spiralized!

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 red or green bell pepper Blade A, noodles trimmed
  • ½ small white or yellow onion Blade A, noodles trimmed
  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme

  • Heat a 10” skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Once oil is shimmering, add the bell peppers and onions and season with thyme, salt and pepper. Cook until wilted, about 5-7 minutes. Pour over the eggs and tilt the pan to let the egg fill the bottom of the pan.

Let cook for 2 more minutes and then fold in half. Press down with the spatula to tighten the omelet.

What is the best way to store spiralized peppers and onions? I like spiralize enough veggies for a couple days worth of breakfast so that I can cook my breakfast every day. I usually do eggs in a pepper circle, but I like this idea better. And the onions sound delicious. I just don't want to have to get my spiralizer out every morning.
Ali Maffucci says:
I hear ya! They will last up to 4-5 days in the fridge! The onions last a little less and I have to warn you, smell pretty strong it's almost unbearable!
Kim Jones says:
Do you have any idea what happens to them if you freeze them?
Corita Fischer says:
They will get mushy

I and my buddies have already been looking through the excellent items found on your website and then came up with a terrible feeling I had not thanked you for those strategies. These boys appeared to be as a result excited to read all of them and already have undoubtedly been taking advantage of them. Thank you for truly being well considerate and for having varieties of excellent information most people are really eager to understand about. Our sincere apologies for not expressing gratitude to earlier.

THREE BEST WAYS TO COOK ZUCCHINI NOODLES 🍝 ⁣

we're a month into summer and the zucchinis are LARGE. 👏🏼 they grow like weeds this time of year and there's only so much zucchini bread, soup, and fritters you can make - time to spiralize them! if you're new to spiralizing and not sure the best way to approach cooking spiralized zucchini, here are my top 3 ways to cook zoodles 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼⁣

1️⃣ SAUTÉ -  this is my favorite way to enjoy zoodles. toss them over medium-high heat until al dente (with or without cooking oil.) the moment you notice them getting soggy, remove them from heat, drain into a colander, and pat dry. I recommend pouring a sauce on top instead of tossing with a sauce, to avoid extra wateriness. I LOVE a bolognese over zoodles.⁣

2️⃣ SIMMER - zucchini noodles don't get soggy in soups, they cook evenly and they are an easy way to add veggies into soups. just add them to the end of the cooking process (3 minutes is all you need to simmer until al dente.) think chicken "zoodle" soups and "zoodle" ramens! ⁣

3️⃣ RAW - you can eat zucchini raw! in the summertime, there's nothing better than a cold zoodle salad, and I love simple pesto zucchini noodles or you can try an Asian-inspired Thai dressing like a peanut sauce.⁣

do these veggies make my belly look big? 😛🤰🏻 🧅🥒🍅 be honest! #29weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #29weekspregnant ...

I'll admit, it's been a minute since I posted a spiralized zucchini meal on here, so I'm throwing it back (and bringing it back!) with this MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN with SPIRALIZED VEGETABLES 🍅, originally made for the blog by my friend @skinnytaste! 🙏🏼⁣

I love the simplicity of this zoodle dish, it's one of those "what the heck am I going to make for dinner tonight?!" 🤔 kind of meals. you can bulk this up with some grains or some grilled potatoes, too!⁣

search the blog for the recipe! 🖥️⁣
