A delicious new classic candida diet recipe for phase 2 of the diet – Omelette with Green Pepper and Leek. Quick to make & looks good, too…


  • 2-3 Eggs
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper
  • 1 Small Leek
  • 1 pinch Salt & Black Pepper


  • 1 pinch Tumeric
  • 1 handful Pine Kernels
  • 1 handful Fresh Basil or Spinach Leaves


  • Can be eaten cold as a snack. Best taken out of the fridge some time before serving in that case to bring the flavours out.
  • Best to make double the amount for the next day – Serve with a mixed salad for lunch.


Step 1
Chop the leek and bell pepper into small chunks and lightly fry them in a little olive oil with salt and pepper until soft.

Then break the eggs into a bowl and blend with a fork. Season with a bit more salt, pepper and a pinch of tumeric/ kurcuma and add the leek & pepper (plus chives or basil if you have).
Step 2
Add half a teaspoon of butter to the frying pan. Then pour the egg/ leek/ pepper mix into the frying pan to cover the entire base (6 inches/ 15cm).

Roast the pine kernels lightly in a small frying pan and sprinkle over the top of the egg & vegetables.
Step 3
Fry until it sets and you can move a spatula underneath the omelette.

Make sure it doesn’t stick to the frying pan when you turn it to fry the other side.

Thankyou so much for all your recipe ideas – this is great. Just wanted to let you know that this recipe (omelette with green pepper and leek) doesn’t seem like its complete – you’ve missed out adding the leek in, and where do the green peppers come into it?

Thanks :)

Hi Lucy, thanks for pointing this out and sorry for the late response. I’ve been on holiday and just got back to check my emails…
It’s funny, I’m sure I included one more step in the recipe. Perhaps it got cut off when I moved it from Word into my recipes plug in. Strange… but you’re absolutely right. The leek and bell pepper get finely chopped and fried until soft before you stir them into the eggs. This mixture you then pour into the frying pan until it’s browned and set.
Have you made it yet? It works with any kind of bell pepper and is also really nice done in the oven.
