Serves 1 or 2

3 eggs, preferably from organic, pastured poultry
1 Tablespoon butter
¼ cup onion, diced
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 Tablespoon cilantro, chopped
¼ cup black beans
¼ cup white cheddar cheese, grated

In a small bowl, whisk eggs with 1 Tablespoon of water. Heat a small non-stick sauté pan over medium heat. Melt butter, add onions and garlic, and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes. Add black beans and cilantro, and mix thoroughly. Add eggs and swirl around the pan to evenly distribute. Using a heat-proof spatula or wooden spoon, gently pull the edges of the omelet away from pan as it cooks. When eggs are cooked to your preference, sprinkle with cheese, fold over, transfer to plate and serve.
