1 can of black beans, drained
Juice of 1 lime
1⁄4 tsp cumin
Hot sauce (optional)
Salt and black pepper to taste
1⁄2 cup feta cheese, plus more for serving
Sliced avocado (optional)
Pulse the black beans, lime juice, cumin, and a few shakes of hot sauce in a food processor until it has the consistency of refried beans, adding a bit of water to help if necessary.
Coat a small non-stick pan with non-stick cooking spray or a bit of butter or olive oil and heat over medium heat.
Crack two eggs into a bowl and beat with a bit of salt and pepper.
Add the eggs to the pan, then use a spatula to stir and then lift the cooked egg on the bottom to allow raw egg to slide under.
When the eggs have all but set, spoon a quarter of the black bean mixture and 2 tablespoons feta down the middle of the omelette.
Use the spatula to fold over a third of the egg to cover the mixture in the centre, then carefully slide the omelette onto a plate, using the spatula flip it over at the last second to form one fully rolled omelet.
Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make four omelettes. Garnish with salsa and avocado slices if you like, and bit more crumbled feta.
