A nice dish for Sunday brunch or a quick weeknight dinner, this omelet is packed with veggies. Mushrooms, tomatoes, onion and green pepper boost the flavor as well as the nutrient density.

My husband makes this for Sunday Brunch...we also saute in asparagus and add some pre-cooked greens on the side. That and a dash of Green Tabasco Sauce! We love it!

This was good, works well with portabella mushrooms as well. I do have to say that I use only 2 eggs + 2 egg whites.

Made this last sunday for brunch. I used good ole fashioned white mushrooms, and didn't have any tomatoes so I just used a can of tomatoes with the juice drained from it. I had some small red, orange, and yellow peppers that I cut up. I found this to be real tasty.

This recipe, which I made for dinner last night, tasted great. I used 6 chopped leaves of fresh basil from my garden instead of the dried basil. I also added a tablespoon of Daiya non-dairy greated cheese on my husband's plate, which he loved. The whole concoction came out as Scrambled Eggs instead of Vegetable Omelet. Would appreciate any tips for turning the eggs to keep everything intact!

We make different versions of this, using whatever veggies we have on hand. We call it veggie/egg hash since the volume of vegetables far outweighs the volume of egg mixture and I find it impossible to flip it intact. Nonetheless, it is quite tasty!

I love this recipe! Its quick and easy to prepare, and its delicious! I also add fresh spinach on top of the egg and basil and allow it to wilt. I love it!

A pretty straightforward omelet.  The olive oil caused it to stick badly.  Next time I'll use something else.  I didn't cook the tomatoes but put them on top fresh with some fresh salsa and a little avocado.  Next time I think I'd use less bell pepper too.  The bell pepper overpowered all the other flavors.
