Fantastic! I tested this omelet on Sunday, when they took a deep breath in the kitchen!It was in the February, 2008 edition of Gourmet Magazine, Ruth Cousineau. There were little bites of cauliflower sauteed in spicy EVOO which gave the open-face omelet texture; and the feta(which I won't be able to use for the residents)lends it a nice and salty flavor. After thinking about it we decided that we would add "crumbles" of cheddar. It is delicious!

Directions

  1. Beat eggs with 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  2. Spray nonstick skillet with cooking spray.
  3. Heat oil & crushed red pepper flakes in a 10-inch heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers, then sauté cauliflower until browned and tender, 5 to 9 minutes.
  4. Reduce heat to medium, then add garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper and sauté 1 minute.
  5. Pour eggs over cauliflower.
  6. Cook, lifting edges to let uncooked egg run underneath and shaking skillet occasionally to loosen omelet, until almost set, 4 to 5 minutes.
  7. Slide out onto a large plate.
  8. Put skillet over omelet and, using pot holders, firmly hold plate and skillet together, then invert omelet back into skillet and cook 1 to 2 minutes.
  9. Slide out onto plate and sprinkle with feta and parsley. (You can use cheddar if you want).
