To come back to the recipe of the day - you'll suffer no guilt at all with this meal. Neither will you go through a hassle...because it's hassle-free, not time-consuming and a great change to an otherwise usual egg noodles meal, not to mention how appealing the dish looks...it titillates the taste buds alright!

Green chili..............................................................acc to taste
Green pepper.........................................................as required, deseed, remove white pith and cut into 1 cm circles

Boil the noodles according to instructions on the packet.
Drain and sprinkle with a bit of EVOO
Heat a wee bit of Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a non-stick pan.
Drop in the garlic, ginger and stir for a couple of seconds and add the onions.
When the onions are translucent add the julienned carrots. Continue stirring rapidly on high, add salt.
Then add the zucchini strips/pieces. Continue stirring. Do not cover the pan.
When the juice released by the vegetable has dried add the Soya sauce and the chilli sauce.
It's ready when the liquid has dried. Turn off the heat.
Now drop in the cooked noodles, mix carefully to incorporate the noodles and vegetables.




Add chopped onions, green chili, milk, salt, and pepper to the egg and mix them in with gentle whipping.
Heat some EVOO in a non-stick fry pan. Lower to minimum heat.
Place four circles of green pepper in the pan. Keep a bit of space between the peppers.
After a few seconds, pour the beaten egg mixture into each pepper circle and what's left pour to surround the pepper circles.
Cover with a high domed lid and allow to cook until the egg is set.
Now cut the omelette into four quarters. Turn each quarter, with a flat spoon, over to cook the top side.
If the egg is still too soft allow to cook uncovered for a few seconds. Then turn over.




Allow the top side of the omelette to cook for another 30 seconds on low heat. Then turn over again.
Now add grated cheese, or quartered cheese slices. Place each quarter in the middle of each green capsicum.
Cover with the lid and allow cheese to soften.
While this is getting done, very quickly put the noodles in the serving dish.
Now place each omelette square over the noodles.
Serve hot with desired sauces. Or none at all!
Have a great meal. And don't forget to tell us about it.
