High Protein Spinach & Herb Omelette

by Liat  - January 9, 2023

This frittata-like Persian dish is packed with flavorful herbs that will leave you feeling refreshed and satisfied. In Persian cuisine,(what I grew up on) herbs are treated not as seasonings, but as vegetables. So be prepared for the incredible herb flavors.

Perfect for breakfast, brunch, or as a side with dinner, you can serve this dish as is or with some yogurt. Enjoy!!


4 tbsp Olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 cup Fresh Parsley chopped
1/4 cup Fresh Dill chopped

1/2 tsp Ground Cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
