Fill a small pot with 1 inch of water and place it on medium heat with a lid on
Dice up the tomato and add the minced garlic on top
Dice up the cilantro and pick the dill leaves from the stems
Cut the florets from the head of broccoli, keep their size in mind they need to be somewhat small to fit better in the omelette
In a medium bowl crack all the eggs, discard shells, and add the 1/4 cup of water.
Place the broccoli florets in the pot and steam them with the lid on for roughly 8 minutes; Keep an eye on it to remove them before they become overcooked.
Combine the cilantro, tomato, and minced garlic together
Begin warming a medium frying pan somewhat above low heat
Gently whisk the eggs and water until they’re fully incorporated, then rapidly whisk the mixture by hand until you have a good amount of froth built up. This adds little air bubbles that help to maintain a fluffy texture.
Strain all the water from the broccoli florets and set aside to air dry
The Omlette Party Begins
Add butter to the frying pan, it should melt but not start browning. Once melted make sure to coat the base of the pan
Add the egg mixture to the pan, it shouldn’t immediately start sizzling or you have the pan too hot
As the eggs begin to thicken, use a rubber spatula to gently lift the edges and tilt the pan to allow the more runny egg to fill in underneath
Keep working your way around the edge of the eggs clockwise while slightly tilting the pan as you go to allow the runny eggs to fill in where you're lifting. You want to try and keep the thickness even throughout all sides
Once the base of the omelette is solid, add the shredded cheese in a straight line in the middle from one end to the other
Add half of the tomato mixture on top of the cheese, and add the broccoli florets on top to complete the cheesy veggie omelette fillings
Gently fold one side of the omelette over the middle, then fold the other side to hold in all the ingredients and melt the cheese
Carefully roll the omelette over to put a sear on the fold. It helps to slightly tilt the pan, letting gravity assist as you use the spatula to roll it over
Tilt the pan and slide the omelette onto the plate slowly. Garnish the top with the remaining tomato mixture and fresh dill
