Mushrooms are an excellent source of protein in this tasty vegetarian omelet.


  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons of avocado oil
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons of water
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 8 ounces of assorted mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of minced fresh chives
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and thinly sliced



  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of avocado oil and add the onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions caramelize, about 10 minutes. Add 1/4 cup of water when the onions start to become dark, and season them with salt and pepper. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. Add another 1 tablespoon of the avocado oil to the pan, then add mushrooms, salt, and pepper. Cook until mushrooms brown, then transfer to a bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs with the remaining 2 tablespoons of water and the chives, then season with salt and pepper. Warm the remaining avocado oil in a skillet, then add the egg mixture.
  4. Cook until set, using a spatula to push on the sides. Fill the middle of the set egg mixture with your onions, mushrooms, and other toppings. Serve hot.
