  1. Heat the oil in a small non-stick frying pan, then cook the tomatoes cut-side down until starting to soften and colour. Meanwhile, beat the eggs with the herbs and plenty of freshly ground black pepper in a small bowl.

  2. Scoop the tomatoes from the pan and put them on two serving plates. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and stir gently with a wooden spoon so the egg that sets on the base of the pan moves to enable uncooked egg to flow into the space. Stop stirring when it’s nearly cooked to allow it to set into an omelette. Cut into four and serve with the tomatoes.

Great recipe! Left out the parsley because mine were going bad. Had the egg with 2 wholewheat buns. Tasted very good and delicious.

Good omelette for a quick lunch. I used parsley and mint and added some cooked prawns to the mixture before cooking.
