Golden egg omelette with chives, filled with sesame stir-fry vegetables and finished with a fragrant lemon dressing.
1. Combine 2 tbsp curry base with lemon juice, 1 tsp honey and 2 tbsp olive oil.
Chop basil leaves. Set aside with bean shoots.

2. Finely slice chives. Beat together with eggs, 1/4 cup milk (or water), 1 tbsp curry base and pepper. Set aside.

3. Heat frypan over medium heat with 1 tbsp sesame oil. Slice onion and add to pan as you go. Cook for 4-6 minutes until softened.

4. Slice broccolini, zucchini and roasted red peppers. Add to frypan as you go along with drained water chestnuts, 1 tbsp sesame oil, 1 tbsp soy sauce and pepper. Cook for 3-4 minutes until just tender. Take off heat.

5. Heat small frypan over medium-high heat with 1 tsp sesame oil. Ladle in 1/4 of the mixture and cook for 3-4 minutes until set. Remove to plate and repeat with remaining.

6. Pile even amounts of vegetable filling on one half of each omelette. Drizzle over with dressing and fold over. Top with bean shoots and basil leaves.

Using milk creates a creamier omelette however water also works in this recipe.
