My inner Dr Seuss fan gets excited at the mere thought of green eggs –even without the ham! I often make neon green spinach crêpes filled with Gruyère cheese and ham as a means to satisfy my needs but I do have a slightly lighter alternative in this super green omelette, which can easily become the vehicle for plenty of other ingredients of your choosing. Recipe from my new book Eat.Live.Go. which is available here.

Place the spinach, chives, parsley and milk in a food processor and blitz until smooth (you may need to scrape down the greens with a spatula halfway through the process).
Add the eggs and blitz again to combine, then season with salt and pepper.
Heat half the oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat and pour in half the mixture. Tilt the pan until the mixture completely covers the base. Cook for 2 minutes until just set underneath and then add half the tomatoes, pine nuts, avocado and goats’ cheese. Fold the omelette in half and then cook for a further 2 minutes.
Repeat with the remaining mixture to make a second omelette. Serve the omelettes hot from the pan or allow to cool and chop up for a lunchbox on-the-go.
