Chef Daniel Green is the recipe creator and author of The Paleo Diet (Kyle Books. £14.99), the cookbook from where this recipe is taken from.

He says: 'Sun-dried tomatoes are a great ingredient to have stocked in your Paleo-friendly kitchen.

'They have a rich flavour and an almost meaty texture, so guarantee a very satisfying start to the day – and are especially nice for a weekend brunch.'


  • 12 eggs
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 11/2 red onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 12 cherry tomatoes,halved
  • A handful of basil leaves,shredded, plus extra to serve
  • 75g watercress


1 It's best to cook one omelette at a time, so start by breaking 3 eggs into a large mixing bowl and beating them lightly with a fork. Season with a little black pepper.

2 Turn the grill on to its highest setting.

3 Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large, non-stick frying pan and fry the onion until soft and slightly caramelised. Transfer the onion to a plate and set aside.

4 Add the beaten egg to the frying pan, swirling the pan to cover the base as it sets.

5 Scatter a quarter of the cooked onion, sun-dried tomato, cherry tomatoes and basil over the top of the omelette and slide the pan under the hot grill for 1–2 minutes or until golden.

6 Slide the omelette onto a plate and keep warm while you cook the remaining omelettes. Serve with some fresh, peppery watercress and a little extra basil.
