Leftover Indian Food Omelets

Leftover Indian Food Omelets

1. 2 or 3 eggs
2. ½ to one cup of leftover vegetarian Indian food dish. I used Palak Paneer from India House in Buffalo Grove IL. This recipe also works with the frozen Palak Paneer dinner from Ethnic Gourmet, and will work with any other dish, preferably something without too many chunks of vegetables. If it is “chunky” you can just dice the vegetables and/ or cheese so they will fit in the omelet.
3. 1 pad of butter, smart balance spread, or margarine

1. Heat the butter in a small or medium skillet, and spray with non-stick cooking spray (butter flavor, or flavorless is best, do not use olive oil flavored spray!)
2. Break the eggs into a bowl, add the leftovers, and whisk until fully mixed.
3. Pour the egg mixture into the pan, heat evenly, flip, and fold.
4. Slide the omelet out of the skillet and onto a plate. Serve with French fries, potato chips, fruit, carrot sticks, applesauce, bread/ toast, or rice.

I love omelets, as I’m sure I’ve already mentioned. I also love leftovers. One way to add a slightly different taste to previously eaten food, or to add extra protein to a meal of leftovers is to add them to an omelet. I will be introducing more leftover omelet recipes, because it works with all sorts of different kinds of foods. Veggie burgers, cheese plates (or saganaki), beans, stir fry, Chinese food, Mexican food (minus taco or burrito shells), vegetarian moussaka, tofurkey, just about anything except for leftover pasta could work.
