Vegetable Omelette

I found this vegetarian recipe from the handwritten historical cookbook of my great-grandmother Jenny under the heading "Vegetables". It was originally intended with Brussels sprouts. Since I didn't have some in the house, the recipe was quickly modified and made with cauliflower. This omelette is an easy and quick one. It tastes very nice filled with Brussels sprouts, cauliflower or other vegetables such as carrots or broccoli. A variant with Mediterranean vegetables would also be conceivable. The omelettes are first fried in the pan, then filled with the pre-cooked vegetables, topped with sour cream and then baked in a baking dish in the oven until golden brown. Their taste reminds me so much of Yorkshire pudding. Very nice!

500 grams of vegetables (Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, carrots)

1. Wash and clean the vegetables and cook them in boiling, slightly salted water until they are almost cooked but still have a bite.
