Units Scale
  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 2.5 ounces smoked salmon
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach, chopped
  • Gruyere cheese, aged gouda, cheddar, or parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

White sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon salted butter or plant-based butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup milk or unsweetened oat milk
  • Pinch of chicken stock granules (optional)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Start by making the white sauce. Melt the butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Add the flour and a pinch of stock granule, and stir until the mixture turns into a paste. Keep stirring for 1 minute.
  2. Slowly add the milk while stirring and bring the sauce to a boil. Lower the heat to a bubbling simmer and keep stirring for 5 minutes. Turn the heat off and set aside.
  3. You can make one omelette at a time or use two pans to simultaneously make both. Turn the heat to medium and add 1 tablespoon olive oil to a small pan.
  4. Break 1 egg and whisk it with 2 tablespoons water. When the oil is hot, add the whisked egg to the pan and swirl to cover its entire flat surface.
  5. When the egg is almost fully cooked, add half of the spinach to one side of the omelette – the one that’s closest to you. Place one slice of smoked salmon on top of the spinach and grate a little cheese on top of the smoked salmon.
  6. Using a spatula, fold the bare side of the omelette over the cheese and other ingredients.
  7. Turn the heat off and transfer to a plate. Scoop a little white sauce and pour it over the omelette. Season with salt and pepper, if needed, and serve immediately.
