    What to do

  • 1. To get started, prepare all of the ingredients based on the instructions in the ingredients list. Remember to put a damp tea towel under your chopping board to stop it from slipping. Next, get started on the tomato sauce.

  • For the tomato and garlic sauce

  • 1. Prepare all of the ingredients based on the instructions in the ingredients list.

  • 2. Add the tomato, garlic, oil and sugar to the frying pan and season to taste.

  • 3. Cook for at least 10 minutes, and up to ½ an hour. The final cooking time depends on the time you have available and the type of flavour you want the sauce to have: less cooking results in a fresher flavour, while longer cooking results in a deeper, more intense flavour.

  • For the omelettes

  • 1. Mix all the omelette ingredients except the olive oil together in a medium bowl.

  • 2. Heat ½ teaspoon of olive oil in the 20 cm frying pan over medium heat.

  • 3. Pour in just enough omelette mix to cover the base of the pan.

  • 4. Cook for about 1 minute, then flip and cook the other side.

  • 5. Remove the cooked omelette and place on a plate.

  • 6. Continue the omelette cooking process until all the batter is used – you should have at least eight round omelettes.

  • Grilled vegetables

  • 1. Cook all the vegetables in a little oil in the large frying pan over high heat. Divide the different vegetables into seperate bowls so it’s easy to construct the omelette.

  • Time to construct the omelette!

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

  • 2. Place the spinach, vegetables, mozzarella and sauce into separate bowls so it’s easy to construct the omelette.

  • 3. Place a spoonful of the tomato and garlic sauce on the plate.

  • 4. Top with an omelette.

  • 5. Add a layer of spinach or silverbeet, then a layer of vegetables, a layer of mozzarella, a layer of sauce, a sprinkle of parmesan and then another omelette.

  • 6. Repeat the process until you have placed your fourth omelette on the top.

  • 7. Top with the remaining vegetables and a sprinkle of cheese.

  • 8. Place the stack in the oven for 5–10 minutes.

  • 9. Slice into wedges and serve.
