Yes, an omelette is usually eaten for breakfast. But this healthy dish can also make for an excellent dinner when made with fillings. You can go for a quick one with cheddar cheese, chives and bacon or ham. Or a more fulfilling Mediterranean omelette. Take a look at three different ways to jazz up your omelette in the video.

Throw in some colourful veggies of your choice, boiled red kidney beans with some cooked leftover rice and you are almost done. All that needs to be added is the dressing and your dinner is ready.

Okay, this one may take 15 minutes to put together, but the final result will be worth those extra five minutes. The combo of beef and noodles is delicious and this dish is proof. Two important ingredients needed are rice vermicelli noodles and a rib-eye steak.

Super quick, easy and spicy, this Chicken schnitzel dish will tingle your tastebuds. Serve it with a side of slaw loaded with the yoghurt dressing to enhance the flavours.
