Chef Tea's Incredible, Edible Omelet

Yesterday, I had the most incredible omelet. I wish I could take the credit for this health-FULL culinary  creation but my husband, Tea, made it.

Tea is an ex-chef and avid foodie and after a little verbal wrangling, he agreed to allow me to post his recipe (he's really very generous--but a tad bit shy). The Chef has explained to me that there is an art to making the perfect omelet (of course, I already knew this).  The instructions are too long to type out. So, in the interest of saving time, I'm posting the recipe below and attaching a cool "how to" video courtesy of youtube.com. Enjoy!

  4. Oh How I love a good omelet. This looks so delicious even as I am eating my French Farmhouse garlic chicken, I would much rather eat the omelet. :)
