you may use any noodle of your choice, be sure to check calorie information about that noodle and make a note of whether it reduces or increase the total calorie content of this meal.
Noodles can be cooked as you see fit. we cook our noodles like pasta, we boil the noodles for a few minutes in boiling water (let the water reach a rolling boil before you add the noodles in). Then we drain it, add a tsp of sesame oil (Optional, if used, note it adds an extra 40kcal to the meal) and half the noodle spice (use all if you want).
2 eggs: 188 calories
Tomatoes (half): 12 calories
Shallots (1): 20 calories
Leeks, sliced (1/5 cup): 12 calories
Cream (1 tbsp): 53 calories
Cheddar cheese (1 slice): 84 calories
For the omelette, you have to have a really good non-stick pan. we use a 20cm non-stick copper stone frying pan. Dry-fry the leeks, tomatoes and shallots with a pinch of salt for 3-5 minutes on low to medium heat, keep stirring, do not allow to burn.
Mix your eggs, cream and cheese (dice your cheese and mix in). Pour the egg mix into the pan, and stir continuously, this is to get the cheese to melt, about 15-20 seconds after I add my egg mix, I take the pan of the stove and use the heat in the pan to melt the cheese (continuously stirring). Then I add it back to the heat, evenly spread the omelette and allow it cook. after about 3 minutes, I flip one half over the other, let both sides cook for another minute each and then serve. if you like your omelette slightly runny, cook for less, or when you flip, take off the stove completely.
You can adjust this recipe for a lower calorie meal, by using less eggs, or cutting out some items like the cream, or cheese.
