This omelet recipe is perfect for these hot Summer days. It is easy, practical and can be prepared in advance.
I don’t know how is the weather where you live, but I begin to feel uncomfortable with hot weather here in Sardinia. I am even lucky because living close to the sea, the air is always fresher and being an island, it is often windy…but cooking becomes less pleasant – at least you stay less in kitchen with your oven turned on.
So I am becoming fond of these recipes that, other than being vegetarian and light, are easy and quick to prepare. Yesterday I prepared the spicy potato salad, and tomorrow I’ll post another recipe like these ones.
This zucchini and potato omelet recipe is easy and healthy, as it is baked instead of fried. I prepared it in advance, as I wanted to photograph it and then go to gym. Well, I ate a small piece to check if it was good (it was!), and right after finishing the photos my daughter came home hungry and ate immediately two slices. What do I mean? That it is that kind of food that you can eat anytime.
