Spinach and halloumi omelette

Just a quiet night in watching Great British Bake Off, and not much in the fridge…so usually I really wouldn’t bother blogging…but then, against all odds, all my leftovers suddenly came together into the most magical supper, so thought I’d share it.

3 pucks of frozen spinach
3 eggs
Nutmeg, freshly grated
Knob of butter
50g halloumi, freshly grated

1. Put the frozen spinach in the microwave for a couple of minutes. Squeeze out all the moisture, and leave it to cool.
2. Crack the eggs into the bowl with the spinach, season with freshly grated nutmeg, salt and pepper, and use a fork to whisk everything together.
3. Heat the knob of putter in a pan, and then pour the spinach-egg mixture into the pan. After a minutes of cooking, sprinkle the grated halloumi over half of the omelette.
4. When the halloumi is just starting to melt, fold the omelette in half, and serve.

I was trying to work out how to get lemon into the recipe, as it’s a natural flavour to put with spinach and halloumi…but I couldn’t suss it out until I figured that the solution was to make some homemade lemonade. (1:lemon juice, 1:sugar syrup, 2:water/ice). Delicious!

    I love this kind of “make do” dinner. It almost always turns out to be some sort of comfort food.

    We had a bottom of the barrel dinner last night too. Potatoes, cauliflower, bacon, garlic and cheese. All baked together with herbs and spices. It wasn’t pretty but it sure was tasty. Cheese makes everything good!

    Homemade lemonade sounds divine. It sounds too simple to be true. I’m a bit embarrassed to admit that I have never made lemonade or even ice tea before. It’s always been store bought for me.

      Thanks so much for your comment - I agree about the make-do dinner…I think it’s a combination of low expectations, and actually having quite good left overs!
      Do try homemade lemonade…it’s delicious, and so smug-making!
