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!)

Vegetarian Western Omelette with Spiralized Bell Peppers

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!

Vegetarian Western Omelette with Spiralized Bell Peppers

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time20 mins
Servings: 1 omelette

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
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/3 cup diced tomatoes I used roma
  • 1/4 avocado pitted, peeled and sliced
  • to serve: green salad salsa

Instructions

  • 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. Sprinkle with the tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes until eggs set on the bottom, then run a spatula around the edges and under the omelet to loosen it from the pan and flip it over. Let cook for 2 more minutes and then fold in half. Press down with the spatula to tighten the omelet.
  • Transfer the finished omelet to a plate and top with avocado. Serve with greens, if preferred.

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.

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
