Traditional Cretan Zucchini and Onion omelet is a great fit for breakfast, lunch or dinner. This Mediterranean Diet breakfast recipe is very simple to prepare and presents beautifully at your table. It is both delicious and nutritious. We especially recommend pulling out this recipe when your garden is overflowing with zucchini!
Zucchini and Onion Omelets pair well with flavored Greek Yogurt. Add cumin, fresh garlic and salt to the yogurt and place a dollop on your omelet servings. For breakfast, we love this dish with sourdough toast. Serve for dinner with sliced and salted tomatoes or Mediterranean Living’s Greek Salad.
