Fresh mint gives this cheese omelet a floral flavor. Serve it with grilled bread and a green salad for a light meal.
Yield: serves 4
Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup ricotta
  • ¼ cups coarsely chopped mint leaves
  • 1 tsp. crushed red chile flakes
  • 6 large eggs
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil

Instructions

  1. Position a rack at the top of the oven and turn the broiler to high. In a bowl, whisk together the ricotta, mint, chile flakes, eggs, and salt and pepper to taste. To a large skillet set over medium-high heat, add the oil.

Transfer to the oven and broil until lightly browned on top, 30–60 seconds.
