Italian omelette with chicories and sundried tomatoes

This is an absolutely creative recipe and a great idea to "hide" vegetables into more savory and particular dishes, in order to serve them to the whole family (children included!). It's an Italian omelette with chicories which taste is enhanced by the presence of sundried tomatoes, so sweet and savory. Our suggestion: use this omelette as a filling for a sandwich!

Brown garlic in a nonstick pan with a dash of extravirgin olive oil. Add anchovies, then sundried tomatoes previously chopped. Add them your chicory coarsely chopped too. Pour over the vegetables the beaten eggs and a pinch of salt too. Cover with a lid and cook for some minutes. After some minutes, turn the omelette upside down. Once cooked and nicely brown, serve it hot.

When you buy your chicories, bear in mind that they must be fresh and green. Avoid dark or flaccid leaves!
Chicories are rich in vitamins, in particular C and A, folic acid, fibers and mineral salts, iron, magnesium and calcium. Moreover, chicories contain few calories and are digested very easily. A real cure-all food!
