Method

  • Step 1

    Boil the potatoes until just tender, drain.

  • Step 2

    Heat the oil in a pan. Saute the onion for 5 minutes, or until soft. 

  • Step 3

    Then add the courgette and cook for another 3 minutes. Then add the peas and sweetcorn and cook for a further 5 minutes.

  • Step 4

    Meanwhile beat the eggs in a bowl, add water and mixed herbs.

  • Step 5

    Spread the potatoes evenly across the pan with the vegetables, and pour the egg mixture over. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the omelette is almost set. Meanwhile heat the grill.

  • Step 6

    Remove pan from heat. Sprinkle half the cheese over the omelette, fold in half and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Then brown the top under the grill for about 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown.

  • Step 7

    Cut into wedges and serve.

This is a great vegetarian dish or add finely chopped chicken or turkey for a meat alternative.
