Egg yolks are healthy for your eyes!

Don’t toss the yolk! Egg yolks are known to prevent serious eye conditions like macular degeneration so don’t feel guilty for skipping that egg-white omelette in favour of one with egg yolks.

Need a creative way to keep your egg yolks or a healthy recipe for an omelette without getting rid of the egg yolk? Try an asparagus goat cheese omelette!

To make it, you’ll need:

4 tsp of butter

8 eggs

1 bunch of asparagus

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

3 sliced green onions

1 tbsp chopped fresh tarragon

4 oz crumbled goat cheese

 

Directions

Start by cooking asparagus and green onions in a large skillet over medium heat for about 3 minutes or until tender. Remember to snap off the woody ends of asparagus before cooking!

Stir in the tarragon and keep cooking for 1 minute before transferring to a bowl.

While that’s cooking, whisk eggs, salt, pepper, and 2 tbsp of water in a separate bowl until it’s just blended, but not frothy.

In an 8-inch nonstick skillet, melt 1 tsp of butter over medium heat. Throw in one quarter of the egg mixture, cook until it’s almost set, which will be about 3 minutes.

Cooking Tip: Gently lifting edges with a spatula allows uncooked eggs to flow underneath.

Place one-quarter of the veggie mixture on half of the omelet and sprinkle with one-quarter of the cheese.

Fold that in half and cook for an additional minute.

Slide onto plate and repeat with the remaining ingredients.

Place one-quarter of the vegetable mixture on half of omelette; sprinkle with one-quarter of the cheese. Fold in half; cook for 1 minute. Slide onto plate. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Makes 4 servings.
