In my previous post on Chives Omelet, i mentioned that i will do another omelet post using mint leaves. Well, this is it. My mum used to cook this quite often when we were young. My dad hates mint, which is great as he will not touch this and that means more for us kids!
I didn't expect my little guy to like this, so I only cooked enough for myself and hubby, but thought I'd give him a small piece to try. Surprisingly he liked it, and subsequently walloped a whole big piece by himself. Kids, they surprise you sometimes.
This is super easy to make. Just mix the leaves with the beaten egg, add your preferred seasonings and Voila!

and are wondering what are they, see here :)
- 3 medium size eggs, beaten
- 1 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves, roughly chopped
- 1 medium size red onion, sliced thinly
- 1 tbspn water
- Dash of soy sauce and white pepper
1. Stir the leaves and seasonings into the beaten egg mixture and mix well.
2. Heat some oil in a shallow pan and fry the onions until softened. Pour the egg mixture in. Cook on medium heat for about 2-3 minutes, then gently flip the omelet onto the other side and cook for another 1 minute. Serve warm.
