BROCCOLI & ONION STUFFED OMELETTE

Growing up I never, I mean loathed broccoli! They just seemed like these tasteless mushy vegetables that did not even smell nice. Now that I love cooking and trying out different combinations, I know better. I love broccoli better. This stuffed omelette is healthy and light, plus the added benefit of lots of veggies, its great for someone who wants to loose weight. The trick to enjoying vegetables is not to over cook them as they will be soggy and tasteless. Adding spices is another way that you can up the flavour of vegetables especially if you plan to eat them without any sides. Breakfast is important so make it healthy and delicious.
