Ratatouille & cheese omelette


  • Preheat the overhead grill to highest degree.
  • Heat a little oil in a heavy-bottomed pan (that can go into the oven) and gently sauté the red onion and garlic until reasonably tender.
  • Add the eggplant and zucchini. Mix and gently cook for 5 mins or so, continually stirring, being careful not to burn.
  • Then add the tomatoes with quite a bit of seasonings, and toss for a few minutes.
  • Whisk the eggs with the cream, basil and seasonings. Then pour this mixture into the pan and gently cook until firmish.
  • Scatter a generous amount of grated cheese on top and grill until the top is golden.
  • Cut the omelette in wedges and serve with a simple salad on the side.
