Egg & Bean Omelet

Ingredients:6 eggs – beaten
½ cup cooked rice
1 – 15.5 oz. can of red kidney beans – drained
1 red onion – sliced
3 cloves garlic – chopped
1 medium jalapeño – chopped with seeds
Handful of fresh basil – chopped
Mozzarella – shredded
Dashes of paprika
Dashes of cayenne
Dashes of cumin
Dashes of black pepper
Olive oil

On a heated griddle drizzle a little olive oil and spread it with a spatula. Place the onions, garlic, jalapeño, fresh basil. Let the onions become slightly clear and caramelized. Add the rice and the drained beans all of the spices and continue to grill on medium low heat.

In a separate medium sized frying pan drizzle a little olive oil, swirl it around to cover the pan and heat. When the pan is heated, pour in the eggs to just about cover the pan. Carefully loosen the eggs and scoop the spatula under to lift the eggs and gently flip. Careful not to break the eggs. The eggs should look like a crepe.

Plate the eggs and cover with the mozzarella and the beans and rice from the griddle. Top with a little more mozzarella.

Wow, what a great way to start the day, have lunch or end the day. Take your pick.

Lots of Love to you,
