Nutritional values

This is a variation of the Basque original dish called "Piperade." Our version tastes just as delicious, but it gets by with much less fat.

In the Basque Country, the vegetable omelet is particularly popular with fried Bayonne ham. If you want to include meat in this dish, it is best to use lean ham and add it to the pan with the egg mixture. For an even healthier version use low-fat sour cream instead of regular sour cream.
