I had a handful of Thai basil leaves and I did not want to keep them any longer as the leaves tend to bruise and blacken in time. So what to do with them? I usually make egg dropped soup or this omelette which is so simple but fragrant. I was afraid BoiBoi might not like the smell of basil but since it's an omelette, he ate them all up!
I just lightly beat a couple of eggs with a pinch of salt and pepper. Drop in shredded leaves or you can keep them whole. Put a bit of oil in a hot pan and pour over the egg mixture. Fry till lightly browned. Easy peasy.
I've also served this as Basil Omelette and Roasted Peppers Open Sandwich.
