QUICK MEAL: OMELETTE W/SHIITAKE MUSHROOMS

Thursday, August 23, 2012
I posted this on Instagram and twitter and asked if you guys want the recipe. Since you all were
enthusiastic about it, i thought hey why not! It's simple even a 5th grader could do it! :)
I am no professional chef nor an experienced cook but I do love cooking and this recipe is just something I came up with! You know, if I weren't an interior design student or a  blogger, I would probably be a chef now! :)

Takes 15 mins to make
Good for 1 person but if you wish to double it or triple, just multiply the quantity!
Use non-stick pan

Ingredients:
-3 whole eggs
-3 medium sized shiitake mushrooms (use only the head and not the stem)
If you don't know how to clean it, you can refer to this link.
-1 medium tomato (optional)
Some people don't like tomatoes in their omelettes so if you're one of those, just don't include this.
-1 small onion
-2 cloves of garlic
-parsley (you can use basil or scallions)
-oyster sauce
-olive oil

How:
1. Slice the ingredients whatever cut you prefer. (photo 1)
2. Heat the non-stick pan and put 2 tbsp of olive oil. (You can use any vegetable oil if you dont have olive.) Sautee garlic, onion, tomato til they soften, then add the shiitake. 
Add a dash of salt & pepper then cover it for 5 minutes. After, add a teaspoon of oyster sauce (you can use soy as substitute). You will know when its cooked if the mushrooms become soggy and dark. (photo 2)
3. Lower the heat and add the beaten eggs. Wait for it to cook! Don't flip/turn cause you might ruin the shape! haha (photo 3)
4. When the eggs become firm, get it out of the pan and serve it!
Some prefer their omelette folded in half (i dont lol) so you can do that too :)

That simple!
Let me know when you have tried it :)
