  1. Beat one egg and 1 1 /2 tbsp of the almonds in a small bowl with 1 tbsp water. Heat 1 tsp oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and pour in the egg mixture, swirling the pan to evenly cover the base. Cook until the mixture sets and turns golden on the underside, about 2 mins. (There is no need to flip it over.) Turn it out onto a plate and make another one with 1 tbsp water, the remaining egg, oil and almonds.

  2. Top each crêpe with the avocado, nectarines and pomegranate, and squeeze over the lime at the table.

Delicious, fast, easy and healthy! I find omelettes too eggy by themselves, so the addition of ground almonds gives me a lower-carb alternative for bread. I couldn't see how avocado and nectarine would go, but it was lovely. I personally found the pomegranate too sweet on top of that. Next time I will use the crepe and avocado as a base, and experiment with some savoury toppings.

I would not normally cook something like this for breakfast but I was quite impressed with how this came out. The crepe (or omlette really) came out nice, and the toppings were just divine. I really enjoyed this breakfast.

I liked it knowing it was really healthy. Swapped the nectarines for caramelized apples.
