In our backyard a lot of flowers are in bloom. The sage is really spectacular. We do use sage a lot in our cooking but mostly leaves and in the fall we make sage sticks.
We forget that a lot of flowers are edible, and I am always tempted to add a little elegant touch to a meal with fresh flowers. Always know from where the flowers come from if you want to use them for cooking and check here the list of edible flowers.
This week I share with you a simple idea of a pretty and tasty breakfast, an omelet with sage flowers.
It's very simple. Beat the eggs together until you see a lot of bubbles on the surface. Add salt and pepper.
Slice finely sage leaves and add them to the eggs, along with the flowers you washed before hand and mix it together.
Be mindful of how much sage you put in, it has a strong flavor.
I like to cook an omelet on a not sticking pan, a little bit like a crepe or pancake. I like it brownish on the outside but not too cooked inside. For that I wait the omelet is hard enough to be folded in two and I don't let it cook for too long. Adjust it to the way you like your omelet and enjoy !
