Omelette Rice with Vegetables

A quick, healthy lunch or breakfast

No patience to read the blog?

You might have heard of Omurice, a japanese dish, so if you think this Omelette Rice with Vegetables is inspired by that, you’re right. But we can’t help it, we love omurice so much that we keep coming up with different versions. Of course, the original is absolutely delicious too.

Basically, Omelette Rice puts a little twist on your classic omelet turning it into a perfect lunch, with extra benefits:
-you only need one pan;
-it’s super quick to make;
-works great as a side dish to pretty much anything;
-it’s healthy;
-it’s compliant with a vegetarian diet;
-it’s really cheap to make.

We actually started cooking this recipe back in university, where we studied Japanese. We didn’t really have access to the original dish recipe, so we reimagined it with what we had available. And we fell in love. We basically ate this version of Omelette Rice with Vegetables daily for years, and we’re still not tired of it.

Since we could make it back when we were students, we’re really confident that pretty much anyone can cook this. You don’t need to be an expert or even really good in the kitchen. You only need fresh eggs, good rice and about 30 minutes to get a nice, healthy, rich one pan lunch. And once you start making it you’ll love how easy it is to experiment with it. You can add different types of meat, extra cheese, other vegetables and play around with your seasoning.
