This delicious and super easy dish is choke-full of veges and a healthy meat-free, dairy-free alternative.
3/4 cup baby spinach
1/4 red bell pepper, chopped
4 cherry tomatoes, quartered
6 eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon onion salt
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
*1 teaspoon shelled hemp seeds
*1 teaspoon chia seeds
*1 teaspoon nutritional yeast seasoning
Chop and toss vegetables. In a separate, heavy duty bowl, beat eggs, add garlic and the remaining spices and seeds.
Add veges and mix well.
Place wire rack that came with Instant Pot in the bottom. Add 2 cups water to the bottom of Instant Pot.
Cover heavy duty bowl. I like to use Reynolds Pan Lining Paper (foil on one side and parchment paper on the other side). I put the parchment paper on the side nearest the food. If you don’t have this, foil works. Place in Instant Pot.
High pressure for 5 minutes on with the lid in the sealed position. Natural pressure release for 10 minutes.
This recipe serves three. I served the omelet with clementines (a.k.a. cuties), and cinnamon toast using Ezekiel sprouted bread made from whole grains, butter, and organic coconut sugar.
*Shelled Hemp Seeds are rich in healthy fats and essential fatty acids. They are also a great protein source and contain high amounts of vitamin E, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and zinc.
*Chia Seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide fiber, iron, and calcium. Omega-3 fatty acids help raise HDL cholesterol, the “good” cholesterol that protects against heart attack and stroke.
*Nutritional Yeast Seasoning is a source of complete protein and vitamins, in particular B-complex vitamins. It contains folates, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, selenium and zinc, making it a great superfood.
