This Japanese rolled omelette with soy sauce is ideal for a quick breakfast or lunch, as It only includes 3 ingredients, which are mixed and poured into the pan. It really is a different way to prepare an omelette, with a slightly different taste and texture. And also with a touch of international fusion cuisine.
The original thing about this dish is the way in which the tortilla is made, in three rolled layers, but its flavor and texture is very special, thanks to the combination of soy sauce and rice vinegar, and the rolling method.
This simple but rich recipe is prepared with three ingredients that are easy to find and, in addition, nutritionally very good for your health. The egg is rich in quality protein and it contains all the vitamins that the body needs, except vitamin C. Soy sauce does not contain significant amounts of vitamins, but it is rich in potassium and phosphorus, magnesium and calcium. Rice vinegar is included in small amounts, but its contribution of sodium and potassium to the diet is valuable.
Ingredients for 2 people:
- In a bowl beat the eggs, add the soy sauce and vinegar. Keep beating until smooth.
- Melt a block of butter in the pan and pour in a third of the mixture. Move to form a disk, wait for it to brown, fold the ends in and then fold it in half, lengthwise, so that it is very thin.
- Using a spatula, slide the tortilla to the edge of the pan and pour another third of the batter. In this way, the dough will adhere to the folded tortilla.
- When browned, roll the new tortilla over the old one, remove to the side and pour the remaining batter.
- When it’s done, repeat the folding procedure to get a three-layer tortilla roll.
- Put it on a plate, cut it in half and serve two servings.
For a healthy, nutrient-packed meal at home, you can combine this omelette with meats, a vegetable salad or a rice dish. The options are very diverse and this is certainly a very simple accompaniment to make on any occasion, much healthier, more complete and tasty than a simple egg omelette.
