Greek Omelet 

Print¬†Friendly 

Description:
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.


Ingredients:
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


Directions:
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.

Nori Rolls
Category: Vegetarian Entrees
Description: Nori has been valued as a food of longevity by Japanese people for a long time. According to the earliest written records in 701 AD, nori was so valuable as to be one of the tributes in those days.
The amount of nutrition contained in nori is the highest among seaweeds, and nori contains as much protein as soybeans. Nori also contains vitamins and minerals such as iron and calcium as well as EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and fiber, which are necessary for maintaining good health.
Nori is full of three desirable taste components: glutamate acid, inosinic acid, and guanil acid--also called "the flavor of Japan." This is the secret of its popularity among Japanese people since ancient times.
Nori contains 12 kinds of vitamins including group A and B vitamins. Nori is called "The Reservoir of Vitamins" because few other foods are as much in vitamins as nori. Nori is part of a "beauty diet"--rich in protein and low in cholesterol.
It is also part of a "healthy diet"--abundant in vitamins and minerals. It is especially good for growing children, with excellent medical value because it contains a substance that lowers cholesterol, helping to prevent arteriosclerosis.
At the Japan Cancer Congress in 1958, professor Ichiro Yamamoto from Kitazato University announced that nori has cancer-preventing properties, and since then, nori's medical value has gained a significant amount of public attention.
