Meatless Monday: Spinach, Mushroom + Red Pepper Omelet Muffins


Meatless Monday: Spinach, Mushroom + Red Pepper Omelet Muffin

 Happy Meatless Monday! I can’t believe that it’s already Monday again and that we are halfway through March.  I feel like this month has seriously flown by but it is always a busy time for me.  

Both of my kids are born in March and every year I also make a trip with my hubby to attend a chiropractic conference at the Mohegan Sun.  I am actually here right now as I am typing this and will be headed back just in time to celebrate my daughter’s 2nd birthday on Sunday!  

Since it is about a 5 1/2 hour drive (or if you’re my hubby, about 4 1/2) I decided to make some omelet muffins to snack on during our road trip as opposed to shoving gas station food down in my mouth due to hanger (I get hangry a lot).  

What I love about these omelet muffins is that they are easy to make and they’re super portable.  They’d also be a great dish for a brunch party since they are easy to grab and munch on while you mingle.  

Meatless Monday: Spinach, Mushroom & Red Pepper Omelet Muffin {Gluten Free, Dairy Free}

While you can really make these with any veggie you please, I went for spinach, mushrooms and roasted red peppers because they are easy to incorporate and that’s what I was craving! I also might have a slight obsession with roasted red peppers.

Omelet muffins are so good! The trick is that I end up wanting to eat a bajillion of them because they're so delicious. I haven't added in the roasted red peppers before so will have to give that a shot.
