Annabel Karmel ratatouille omelette #Healthy #Lunch

A recipe from one of my favourite recipe books: Annabel Karmel’s 100 Family Meals, great recipes which all the family will enjoy, it’s never let me down yet! This Spanish style omelette makes a lovely lunch or supper dish. You can play around with the ingredients depending on what you have available. For something more substantial, serve with some crusty bread and a green salad.


  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1 aubergine, sliced
  • 1 small courgette, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and diced
  • 1 small clove garlic, crushed
  • 2 large tomatoes, deseeded and diced (pop into a bowl of boiling water to deskin)
  • A knob of butter
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 75g gruyere cheese, grated
  • salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the onions and aubergine and gently fry for 5 to 6 minutes until the aubergine and onion are starting to soften. Add the courgette and pepper and continue to fry for another 5 minutes, turning the vegetables. Add the garlic and fry for one minute. Add the tomatoes and season. Simmer for 10 minutes until the vegetables are just soft.
  2. Melt the butter in a small omelette pan. Mix the eggs and milk together and season. Pour into the pan. Smooth the vegetables on top and sprinkle over the cheese.
