Thai Basil Omelette

Thai Basil Omelette

I had a handful of Thai basil leaves and I did not want to keep them any longer as the leaves tend to bruise and blacken in time. So what to do with them? I usually make egg dropped soup or this omelette which is so simple but fragrant. I was afraid BoiBoi might not like the smell of basil but since it's an omelette, he ate them all up!

I just lightly beat a couple of eggs with a pinch of salt and pepper. Drop in shredded leaves or you can keep them whole. Put a bit of oil in a hot pan and pour over the egg mixture. Fry till lightly browned. Easy peasy.

I've also served this as Basil Omelette and Roasted Peppers Open Sandwich.

So simple, yet so nice and beautiful. You can try to make them the Thai way too: add some chili padi and fish sauce then fry the egg until fluffy in boiling hot oil! :)
