Preparation

  1. First, let’s make the sauce. Mix all ingredients in a small bowl or a glass jar. Taste test to see if it needs any more salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Let’s move on to making the omelet. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Slowly start adding the water and continue mixing. The mixture should be quite runny. Leave it to rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. Sprinkle with some olive oil and evenly pour half of the mixture into the pan. Cook for a couple of minutes with the lid on.
  4. When the top of the omelet is no longer shiny and the bottom is light brown (check with the spatula), carefully flip the omelet and cook the other side until it’s light brown as well. Set aside and repeat this process with the second omelet. Cover the omelets with a plate to keep them warm.
  5. In the same pan, add some olive oil. Chop the onion and garlic, add to the pan and cook for 3 to 4 minutes until soft. Then add the kale, sun-dried tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Cook for a few minutes until the kale gets dark green and soft. If it starts to burn, add some water.
  6. Top the kale filling on each omelet, drizzle on the sauce, and fold it in half.
