Here you are a light and complete second dish to prepare with Artichokes using your Thermomix of course: Artichokes Omelette cooked in the Varoma tray.
The Varoma cooking gives this omelette more softness respect to the classic fried version or baked one. Moreover is lighter so, less caloric. It's suitable for those who always ask me: "Flavia can you please propose a low-fat recipe?
Artichokes are cooked with a very low quantity of oil and the omelette is cooked in the Varoma tray as I said before. Eggs are super nourishing and they don't cause those collateral effects usually caused by meat. So I think it's a perfect dish for those who want to eat with taste but in a low-fat way!
You can serve it immediately when it's out of the Varoma and still warm or even cold. You can prepare it in the evening and bring it with you in your lunch box. Completely different from those dried up dishes you find in canteens and cafes. Lunch box can be vary sad. But it depends on how you fill it, isn't it? A good artichokes omelette brings happiness, for its vivid colours at least!
It is a big success even served during a buffet cut into squares. Moreover is a second dish you should consider if you have vegetarian guests. I have my friend Maddi who is vegetarian and super everything intolerant and I always think of preparing a vegetarian dish. I think I'll prepare this omelette the next time she'll come to dine!
