Tasty and Healthy Japanese-Style Omelet! (Gluten-Free)

2 Comments

Japanese homemade omelets are slightly different from American omelets. We wrap egg around sautéd meat and vegetables. We also have American omelets in Japan which are called “plane omelets”. But when my mother made an omelet for lunch or dinner, it was always the omelet from this recipe.

The ingredients are ground meat, onion, carrot, mushroom and egg. You can use any kind of meat such as chicken, beef, pork and so on. The seasoning is so simple. It is just salt and pepper. You can also add  ketchup to taste. It is delicious!! I am sure you will like it.

This simple recipe is lower in calories than American cheese and meat omelets. But we have to be careful about the oil and butter that we use when we cook because the amount of oil and butter often used in American omelets is much higher in calories than we think. If you care about calories, I highly recommend choosing the right products and using a measuring spoon for oil when you cook.

Just in case, I am going to include normal product’s calories. If you use “light” or “reduced fat” products, please check the package.

1 Tbsp. of oil: 111kcal

1 Tbsp. of margarine: 91kcal

1 Tbsp. of butter: 89kcal

However, you can’t tell if an oil is healthy or not just by looking at the calories. It is important that we also think about the ingredients, nutrition, glycemic index and so on.

Enjoy your new, great tasting and healthy omelet!
