Pesto Omelette that I added Spelt Flakes to and filled with roasted mushrooms and cheese. This is so delicious because the basil pesto gives out so much flavor and aroma. You can also use oat flakes or other.

Eggs will cook fast so pay attention and turn off the heat as soon as you notice it’s not runny anymore. Or it can get burned easily. Also be gentle with rolling it firmly.

You can also use other fillings like the traditional ham and cheese.

Pesto Spelt Flakes Omelette with Mushrooms is ready to be eaten on its own. But I do recommend a light salad to go with. Or at least some sliced cherry tomatoes that bring some acidity and freshness.
