52 Weeks of Kale – Kale Omelette


Real food recipes don’t have to be complicated and time-consuming. If you’ve been following my menu plan posts, you’ll know that I eat eggs for dinner at least once a week. I like to add veggies and sometimes bacon as well, to make sure I’m getting a balanced meal.

This week I’m going to share my kale omelette recipe with you. This is super-fast to whip up and is perfect for nights when you get home late and don’t have anything prepared for dinner. By adding kale to an omelette cooked in butter you have veggies, protein and fats, a fairly balanced meal.

Kale omelette

Ingredients (serves 1)

1 Tbsp butter

1 cup of kale, with the stems removed and chopped finely.

3 eggs

1 Tbsp fresh chives, finely chopped

Salt and pepper


Heat butter in a frying pan and saute kale until soft (around 5-6 minutes).

Beat eggs well in a bowl, then add chives and season with salt and pepper.

Add egg mixture to the pan and swirl the pan to spread the mixture to the edges. Cook on a low heat until the top is just set, then fold it over and serve.

  1. Still not tried kale! Do you don’t need to steam or pre cook the kale in the omelette? I could maybe try it in the next omelette we have

  2. Three weeks down and only 49 to go!

  3. I am intrigued to find out where I can even *buy* kale. I will have a proper look at the market this week.

  4. When you first introduced your 52 WoK kale omelette was one of my thoughts too! We’ve had enormous bags of kale in our veg box the last couple of times but we’re really boring and have just been eating it lightly boiled as a side veg 🙁

  5. I love a good omelette, and this one definitely looks right for a quick tasty dinner!
