This recipe uses plenty of fresh vegetables so you’ll want to use whatever you have that’s fresh and in season. Get familiar with this recipe first, however, before you make any changes.

Greek Style Country Vegetable Omelet Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 pound zucchini, washed, trimmed, and chopped
  • Salt, to taste
  • 5 tablespoons Greek olive oil
  • 1 shallot, chopped fine
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 large tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 5 large eggs, scrambled
  • 2 tablespoons grated Kefalotii or other Greek cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fresh, chopped parsley

How to Prepare Greek Style Country Vegetable Omelet:

Place the chopped zucchini into a bowl and add a pinch or two of salt. Let it sit for about ten minutes. Drain the zucchini through a colander to remove the excess water.

Drizzle the oil into a deep skillet and set the heat to medium. Let the oil warm for 1-2 minutes.

Add the shallots and let them saute for about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and let it saute for another minute. Stir in the zucchini and let it saute for 2 minutes more.

Add the tomatoes and stir well. Let the mixture saute for about five minutes.

Pour the eggs into the skillet and make sure they disperse throughout. Set the heat to low and let the mixture cook for about 5 minutes, or until the eggs are set. Sprinkle the omelet with the cheese and parsley just before serving.
