Ingredients You Need

If you get hungry in the morning but only have a few minutes to make breakfast, quick and easy meals like my zucchini hummus 2-egg omelet are perfect for you. I’ve kept it basic, so you’ll only need the following ingredients:

  • Coconut oil
  • Ground black pepper
  • Fresh parsley
  • Smoked paprika: Brings a hint of spice to the omelet.
  • Eggs: Prep 2 large-sized eggs, preferably from free-range or pasture-raised hens.
  • Zucchini hummus: Gives your omelet a lighter and more refreshing feel than heavier cheese-based fillings. Find the original recipe in The Ketogenic Edge Cookbook.

Omelet is a versatile dish and can easily be adjusted to suit your taste. You can’t go wrong here, so feel free to experiment with my recipe and come up with your own creations. Below are some of my favorite variations:

  • Add homemade yogurt, sour cream, or heavy cream to the egg mixture for a slightly different texture.
  • Top with crumbled feta cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, Swiss cheese, cottage cheese, cheddar cheese, mozzarella, goat cheese, gruyere, or grated parmesan for a tangy bite.
  • Instead of hummus, top the omelet with zucchini herb butter or creamy avocado salsa.
  • Veggie-fy the dish by adding vegetables like sliced tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, bell peppers, spinach, or other leafy greens like kale and collard greens.
  • Add bits of crispy bacon or ham for added protein.
  • Add your favorite fresh herbs and spices like fresh chives, basil, and cilantro, or a dash of cayenne pepper, cumin, turmeric, or garam masala for a bit of heat.

Step-By-Step Instructions

You won’t even break a sweat prepping this 2-egg omelet with zucchini hummus. It’s ready to serve in just 5 minutes, making it the perfect choice for those busy days when you’re craving a quick yet deliciously satisfying meal.

There are no fancy ingredients and kitchen tools needed, so you can easily make this recipe even if you’re new to cooking. Once you learn how to make the perfect omelet, everything else will be a breeze. Let’s get started!

  1. Make the omelet. In a skillet, heat coconut oil over medium heat. Whisk 2 eggs and pour into the pan. Allow to set then fold over omelet style.
  2. Garnish and serve. Tilt the pan and transfer the omelet onto a plate. Garnish with zucchini hummus sauce, parsley, and paprika, then season to taste. Serve immediately.

Expert Tips

  • Taste and adjust! I always recommend tasting while cooking so you can get to know the dish and adjust the seasoning as you like best. 
  • Avoid heating too low or too high. When the heat is too low, a 2-egg omelet won’t fluff enough for you to slide it off the pan easily. If it’s too high, the egg mixture will burn at the bottom long before the rest of it can cook into the omelet. Aim to get it just right so you won’t lose that delicate texture and flavor.
  • Fold carefully. Use a spatula to fold your omelet in half. If it’s too thick, slide the omelet onto your plate and fold it there to avoid breaking it.

How to Store This Recipe

If you have leftovers or planning to prepare a big batch for a crowd, I suggest storing the 2-egg omelet and zucchini hummus in separate airtight containers. If you’re storing multiple omelets, place parchment paper between layers to prevent them from sticking.

Store them in the fridge within 2 hours of cooking and they should keep fresh for up to 4 to 5 days.

The zucchini hummus is best enjoyed fresh but you can keep it in the fridge for up to two days. I don’t recommend freezing as it can change the texture and may become watery when thawed.

Once ready to serve gently reheat the omelet in a skillet over low to medium heat, or the microwave in short bursts or until warmed through.
