An omelette is an excellent snack that will give you the right boost of energy to start the day. In Greece, versions of this dish are quite popular with the addition of various types of vegetables, such as zucchini, spinach or tomatoes. Below, however, we would like to present to you a slightly original recipe referring to the Greek omelettes, in which the main additions are asparagus, spring onion and feta. These ingredients form a very tasty combination that should appeal to all lovers of green asparagus and omelettes.
1. Peel the bottom of the asparagus from the hard skin and then cut the woody ends.
2. Pour the eggs into a small bowl, add salt and pepper, and then gently whisk them with a fork.
3. Chop the asparagus cut into 2 or 3 pieces in olive oil using a medium-sized pan. Remember that if in the last stage you want to bake this omelette, the dish must have a metal handle or one that is made of high temperature resistant material.
4. At the moment when the asparagus peels will take on an intense golden color, put the onions diced into pans on the pans. We cook it until it is glazed.
5. Pour the eggs into the pan while trying to cover its entire surface. Optionally, sprinkle the whole with finely chopped chives.
6. When the bottom of the omelette is cut, remove the pans from the burner, and put the pieces of feta on top.
7. Then, for a few minutes, put the pan in the oven preheated to 160'C. Omelet the omelette until it is fluffy, and its surface will be browned.
8. If you do not use the oven after pouring eggs, immediately scatter feta pieces on them and cover the pan with a lid. We cook it until the top part of the eggs is cut.

It should also appeal to vegetarians, because vegetables prepared according to Greek recipes are full of flavor and very aromatic.
The genesis of pizza is not as unambiguous as it was thought to be, because it was the ancient Greeks began to bake herbal flat bread with oil and garlic. Although the pizza rather does not belong to the canon of Greek cuisine, the modern Greeks form their own version of pizza based mostly on local vegetables, cheeses, and also olives.
Recently, we managed to buy an okra, which in Crete is a very popular and cheap vegetable. In Poland, in a fresh form, we met her for the first time and unfortunately her price was much higher than the one we pay in Greece. Ok, this time we cooked in the oven with a large amount of olive oil and tomato sauce. We put a recipe in case someone from you also bought an okra and did not know what to do with it ;-)
