Kale, Spinach, Bok Choy, and Turkey Omelet

WP_000941

Had an abundance of turkey from Thanksgiving and plenty of veggies in my winter garden so figured a nice healthy omelet for dinner might help out the recovery from the nutrient lacking foods I ate the day before.

I started by collecting about cup of red curly leafed kale and a leaf of Bok Choy and a green onion from the garden.  Washed and dried to the best of my ability.  Trimmed off the stem of the kale and chopped all into small ribbon size pieces.  I also had some chopped spinach lying around so added that as well.  Added veggies to skillet at medium high heat with about a teaspoon of olive oil and allowed to cook for 5-6 minutes.

Added cooked veggies to a bowl with 3 eggs beaten and mixed quickly to combine.

Cut a half cup of chicken along with a slice of bacon and and cooked until browned.  Added another teaspoon of olive oil, dropped the heat to low and added egg/veggie mixture.  Topped with once slice (0.75 ounce) of pepper jack cheese and covered until completely cooked.
