As a true woman, who loves to live her life to the limit, I’m now sitting in my pyjama with a sticky honey-olive oil-lemon hair mask on my head and watching The Mindy Project.
This is what I call a celebration. Open up the Champaign bottles. A part of my celebrations could include these quick, easy, delicious, protein-, vitamin D – and vegetables loaded tuna omelette sandwiches.
After 2-3 weeks of only being vegan last week I decided to load on some protein and on vitamin D to help me get out of the slump I was in. So I came up with this high protein recipe.
Delicious and super quick tuna omelette sandwich. I had it almost every day, since I was short on time and low on energy. And it worked. I don’t know if it’s the spring coming or omelette, but I feel like a champ now.
HEALTH AND BEAUTY BENEFITS
These tuna omelette sandwiches are amazing and make the most delicious dinner or lunch I can whip up in 10 minutes. They’re perfectly balanced too – whole grain bread, veggies, eggs and tuna. Just a perfect meal – fiber, antioxidants and a lot of protein. And high in vitamin D.
- 3 eggs
- 1 can of tuna
- 1 small onion
- ½ cup broccoli florets
- ½ green or red pepper
- 2 whole grain buns
- 1 or 1/2 Avocado
- 1 tomato
- Arugula/Spinach – other greens
- Start with the omelette - chop onion, broccoli (chop florets smaller), green peppers, olives and put in a mixing bowl. Add the eggs and the tuna.
- Mix everything well together.
- Cover the whole surface of a frying pan (middle-sized) with olive oil and add the omelette mixture. Spread it on the whole surface and cook for 3-4 minutes at medium-high to high heat.
- Flip and cook also the other side. If you can flip without breaking it – you’re my hero! I can’t do it in a million years.
- After 3-4 minutes turn off heat and you’re ready. Make sure the omelette is nicely browned, but not burned!
- Now get to the sandwiches. Cut the buns in half, smash avocado – spread it over the buns, put 2-3 slices of tomato, some arugula or spinach and ¼ of the omelette on top. And then start eating like a million dollar baby without vitamin D deficiency.
