Ingredients (makes 1 servings)

2 rings green bell pepper (40 g/ 0.7 oz)
3 asparagus spears (36 g/ 1.3 oz)
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 large eggs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan (23 g/ 0.8 oz)
1 tbsp chopped chives
pinch of salt and pepper
few sprigs of dill

Instructions

Cut two 1/2 inch (1 cm) slices of green bell pepper. Chop the chives and tear the dill into smaller sprigs.

Heat a large skillet greased with olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the pepper slices and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, turning halfway. When crisp-tender, transfer to a plate.

While the veggies are cooking, crack the eggs into a bowl. Add grated cheese and chopped chives. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Whisk using a fork.

Pour the egg mixture into the hot pan where you cooked the veggies. Use a spatula to bring in the egg from the sides towards to centre for the first 30 seconds.
Turn the heat down to medium. Carefully add the cooked pepper rings and asparagus spears. Sprinkle with fresh dill. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until set underneath.

Serve warm or let the omelet cool down to room temperature and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
