You can add any topping you like to the omelet. Here is how to make a mushroom spinach topping: Add 2 cups of spinach, 2 cups of finely chopped mushrooms, 1 onion and ½ leek to a large frying pan with ½ cup of water. Add 2 tablespoons of homemade vegetable seasoning (optional) and saute together in a large frying pan, covered for 20 minutes. Stir occasionally and add to the omelet when ready. Serve with spring onions, soy sauce and lemon wages.
