The first step when making an egg-white omelette is to crack open the eggs and separate the whites from the yolks. Do this over a bowl, pour the egg whites into it and keep the yolks aside to make other recipes, so you don't waste them.


Once the egg whites are in the bowl, add a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. You can add both condiments or use only one of them, whatever you prefer. Then, with the help of a fork or a whisk, beat the egg whites until they are slightly set, without reaching the point of soft peaks.

If you want to include any of these foods, now is the time to do it. Just add small portions into the egg whites and continue beating them for a few seconds so they mix in better.


Place a frying pan on the heat, add a splash of olive oil and leave it to warm up beforehand. Then just add the beaten egg whites to the pan and when you see they've slightly set, fold them from the ends towards the centre with the help of a slotted spoon to give it shape. Once the omelette has slightly solidified, flip it over and cook the other side.
