Dr. Uma’s Quick and Easy Cheese Omelet


Sri, Dr. Uma’s sister,  taught her this easy-peasy recipe, a staple for mornings where you have 10-20 minutes to whip up something easy, healthy, and delicious!


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon whole milk (can be replaced with water if you prefer; it’s just to get more volume and fluffiness as you whisk the eggs)
  • A dash of turmeric (about 1/8th teaspoon)
  • A dash of black pepper (about 1/8th teaspoon)
  • 1 serving (a slice or chunk) of your favorite cheese (I use pepper jack) 
  • Tomato sauce (jarred is fine, provided no added sugar or other preservatives)
  • Fresh basil, if you have, for garnish
  • Salt to taste
  • ½ tablespoon butter for cooking


Whisk the eggs with the milk. Add in the turmeric and black pepper. Heat a skillet to medium, medium-high and add the butter.  Just as the butter is melting, pour in the egg mixture and let it cook for about 3 minutes, and then flip it over.  

Place the cheese on the already-cooked side of the omelet and fold the omelet in half so the cheese melts within.  After a minute or so, take the omelet off the skillet and plate it.

Garnish with a tablespoon of tomato sauce, fresh basil.  

Can add more salt, pepper to taste.
