This low-carb meal is one of those versatile ones that can be served for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and whips up in no time. I use spinach and parsley as my ‘green’ component, but you could try other greens or herbs depending on how adventurous you want to get.

For the filling, I love salty smoked salmon and feta mixed with creamy avocado, with some parsley to freshen things up and draw out the herb flavours in the omelette. If you wanted to keep things really simple though, this omelette is lovely just sprinkled with some freshly grated cheese.

If you don't have fresh spinach, simply use an equivalent weight of frozen and thawed spinach (excess liquids squeezed out). Enjoy!
