Nectarine starter and an omelette

I like to mix fruits and savoury. I had some nectarines at home and after having a think about whether to make a starter or a dessert I decided that a dessert was too obvious so a starter it was.

I had a look around and decided to pair it with cottage cheese, I wanted a bit of a flavour burst and added some spring onion and some blue cheese to add natural saltiness. Last I gave it a drizzle of my best olive oil and a twist with the pepper mill.

I didn’t feel like doing any food shopping so I decided to make an open faced omelette as a main course, with what I could find in the fridge. Sometimes they work out the best.

  1. A very tasty starter and omelet, Petra! I love nectarine (more than peaches, actually) and this starter is so easy to make it would be perfect for hot summer evenings…

      hi Mark
      Not really cooking but as you said, nice and light! And I agree on the nectarine vs peach even if I like both 🙂 Thanks for hosting this great challenge!
