Puerto Rican Vegetable Omelet

  • SERVINGS: 2

  • VEGETARIAN

If you like, you can use a seven-inch pan to make individual omelets. If you're doubling the recipe, cook two large or four small omelets rather than trying to assemble one very big one.

  1. 1 small red potato, peeled and cut into 1/4 -inch dice
  2. 1/3 small chayote, peeled and cut into 1/4 -by-1 1/2 -inch matchsticks
  3. 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  4. 1/4 small red onion, thinly sliced
  5. 1/4 small red bell pepper, cut into 1/4 -by-1 1/2 -inch matchsticks
  6. 1 garlic clove, minced
  7. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  8. 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  9. 1 teaspoon minced fresh cilantro
  10. 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
  11. 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  12. 1/4 cup heavy cream
  1. In a small pan of boiling water, cook the potato and chayote until just tender, about 4 minutes. Drain the vegetables and transfer to a plate.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a small skillet. Add the onion and red pepper and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until wilted, about 2 minutes. Add the potato, chayote and garlic, season with salt and pepper and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the parsley and cilantro, cover and keep warm.
  3. In a 10-inch omelet pan, preferably nonstick, melt the butter until the foam subsides; tilt the pan to coat the bottom and sides. In a bowl, combine the eggs and cream, and season with salt and pepper. Add the eggs to the pan and cook over high heat without stirring just until the edges set. Lower the heat to moderate and lift the sides of the eggs, tilting the pan to let the uncooked eggs spread underneath. Cook until the bottom is browned and the top is still slightly runny, about 2 minutes.
  4. Spread the vegetables on top of the eggs. Tilt the pan and fold over one-third of the omelet to partially cover the vegetables. Roll the omelet onto a cutting board, flipping it over itself. Cut the omelet in half and serve on warmed plates.
