I am a chef on a luxury world cruise liner. I love to cook and write recipes that are inspired by foods from all over the world.

As a front-of-the-house chef onboard a cruise ship, I cook such dishes as eggs, pasta, stir-fry, and panini, to name a few. "Front of the house" means cooking in front of the passengers. During breakfast, the vegetable omelet is one of the most popular orders—specifically, the water spinach and mushroom omelet. One passenger jokingly told me that he wanted to be as strong as Popeye, and that's why he loves eating spinach so much. Whether Popeye's belief about the health benefits of spinach is right or wrong, I can't say. What I can say, however, is that this particular omelet is one of my most frequent requests.

I decided to try cooking this omelet for myself at home. It's undeniably healthy, and it tasted so good, too. Follow my step-by-step procedure to learn how to make this breakfast dish.

Tips and Techniques

  • Make sure to cook the condiments first before adding the eggs.
  • Flip the omelet to cook it thoroughly.
  • Use a non-stick pan to prevent the eggs from sticking.

      A healthy alternative. I wish I can get water spinach here but I have done this with spinach and it is okay.
