With flavors reminiscent of the classic Greek spanakopita, this easy omelet is just right for a light dinner or brunch. Frozen leaf spinach makes it ultra-quick.
Spinach nutrition is amazing. The calcium content in spinach and the other dark leafy greens mentioned above strengthens bones. Spinach and other dark leafy greens like kale, collards, Swiss chard, turnip greens and bok choy are loaded with calcium, folic acid, vitamin K and iron. Spinach is also rich in vitamin C, fiber and carotenoids. Add its lutein and bioflavanoids and spinach is a nutritional powerhouse. Eggs are a rich source of nutrition and protein.
1/4 cup cooked spinach
4 large eggs
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (2 ounces)
2 scallions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
Freshly ground pepper to taste
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1. Squeeze spinach to remove any excess water. Blend eggs with a fork in a medium bowl. Add feta, scallions, dill, pepper and the spinach; mix gently with a rubber spatula.
2. Set a rack about 4 inches from the heat source; preheat the broiler.
3. Heat oil in a 10-inch pre seasoned caast iron skillet over medium heat. Pour in the egg mixture and tilt to distribute evenly. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the bottom is light golden, lifting the edges to allow uncooked egg to flow underneath, 3 to 4 minutes.
4. Place the pan under the broiler and cook until the top is set, 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Slide the omelet onto a platter and cut into wedges.
Notes: Serve on its own or with a light salad

|Throughout the writings in this column, you will be reading little – if anything - about consuming meat. That is not because I tend to criticize those who do; I just choose not to consume same. It is a very personal choice that many of us make, at some time in our existence....|
|Sandra's Caesar Salad with Hemp Seeds and Dulse|
Description: The Benefits of Dulse Seaweed - Dulse is a reddish-brown seaweed that people have harvested for hundreds of years as a food source, as a skin care and cosmetic ingredient and as a nutritional supplement. Available in most health food stores either fresh or dried, dulse is rich in nutrients like iron and magnesium and its high protein content makes it an important vegetable for people who cannot get their protein from animal products.
Scientifically known as palmaria palmata, dulse is a red algae or seaweed. The regions of the northern coast of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans are the areas which are populated with this sea weed. This species, according to records, was harvested by some monks about 1,400 years ago. As I mentioned, people in Ireland are well aware of the different dulse benefits and so do people in China, Japan, Canada and North European countries. The popularity of this seaweed comes from its high content in vitamins and other essential nutrients required by the body. Dulse is usually soaked in water and added to soups, salads, and other dishes.
