Omelettes make the best breakfast! They're fluffy, super easy to make and they're good for you. Also, no matter what veggies you throw into them, you can always count on them being delicious.
This quick spinach and mushroom omelette recipe is one of our favourites. It doesn't require many ingredients and only takes 15 minutes to throw together!
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Heat 2 tsp cooking oil in a large, non-stick pan over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the mushrooms and a sprinkle of salt and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and beginning to colour, 4-5 minutes. Add the shallots to the pan, stir then continue cooking until soft, 2 minutes longer.
While the mushrooms and shallots cook, beat the eggs with a pinch of salt and pepper in a medium sized bowl. Once the mushrooms and shallots are soft and coloured, add the spinach to the pan; stir until warmed through, 1 minute. Transfer the spinach/mushroom mixture to a plate and return the pan to the stove over medium heat.
Add 1 tsp oil to the pan, swirl it around. Pour in the beaten eggs and tilt the pan slightly from side to side to allow the eggs to swirl and cover the surface completely. Cook the eggs for about 10 seconds, then tilt the pan again to allow the runny egg to spread evenly over the pan’s surface.
Repeat once or twice until the egg has just set. Scatter the mushroom/spinach mixture over the top of the omelet, then drizzle with 1-2 tsp OKAZU. Fold gently in half with a spatula. Pat down, sprinkle on the cheese and slice the omelette in half (or into quarters), then remove the slices from the pan.
Drizzle on some extra OKAZU and serve.

We love matcha! These butter cookies aren’t too sweet and they highlight the delicate bitterness of matcha (green tea powder). Fumi has been gobbling these up. Enjoy with a cup of hot tea.

Do you know about kinpira-gobo? We used to make it for our orinigiri (Japanese rice ball) when we had a store front on Dupont street in Toronto. Kinpira is usually made with burdock roots and carrots.
Since I am in Japan, I sent OKAZU to my Japanese friends to see how they use it.
This recipe is from one of my friends who make kinpira with beets instead of burdock roots and carrots. It's super easy and delicious, so I wanted to share it with you!
