Chicken Sausage Vegetable Primavera Omelette
Recipe type: Brunch
  • 1 +3 tsp oil
  • 100g/4 oz chicken sausage (or your favourite fresh sausage), crumbled
  • 2 small or 1 medium zucchini, cut into 1cm (1/2") wedges
  • 100g/4 oz fresh green beans
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 fresh red finger chilli, stem removed and sliced
  • 1 sweet bell pepper, stem and seeds removed, thickly sliced
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 3 green onions, finely chopped
  • 6 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 Tbsp oil + 1 Tbsp butter, divided
For the Chicken Sausage Vegetable Primavera:
  1. Add 3 tsp oil to a large pan over medium high heat. When the oil is smouldering and almost smoking, add the zucchini wedges. Pan roast on each side for 4-5 minutes until deeply golden. Remove from pan and drain away the excess oil on paper towels.
  2. To the same large pan over medium high heat, brown the crumbled sausage meat for 3-4 minutes. Add the onions, chillis and peppers. Sauté for 2-3 minutes to soften the vegetables. Add the green beans, tomato sauce and ¼ cup of water. Bring to a gentle boil, reduce heat to medium and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the tomato sauce has thickened. Gently stir in the pan roasted zucchini wedges and most of the green onions. Set aside in a warm place.
For the Omelette:
  1. Add 1 tsp oil and 1 tsp butter in a medium nonstick pan over medium heat. When the butter has melted and the bubbles have subsided, add ⅓ of the eggs. Slowly swirl the eggs to ensure that it doesn't stick. Cook the eggs gently over the course of 8-10 minutes. Once set, slide it out of the pan and on to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place it in a 90C/200F oven to keep warm while you cook the rest of the eggs. Repeat with the remaining eggs.
To serve:
  1. Place an Omelette on three plates. Divide the Chicken Sausage Vegetable Primavera over the top of each Omelette. Garnish with remaining chopped green onions. Serves 3 very hearty portions or on a platter instead of three plates, divided amongst 5-6 as part of a larger brunch. The Chicken Sausage Vegetable Primavera is also great tossed with cooked penne, gemelli or rotini pasta.
