Cheese and Lovage Rice Omelette

Cheese and Lovage Rice Omelette

from Mark Lee original, 2012

Lovage is a perennial plant. It has a strong celery+fenugreek flavor that earned it the alternate name of Maggi Plant, from the Maggi-brand curry mix. It is so overpowering that I have not wanted to eat any of my lovage creations in the past. That has changed. After first making this recipe, I couldn't wait to make it again. It is a vegetarian dish, but I could have sworn there was maple-flavored ground sausage in the eggs. This comes from the texture of the brown rice, the greasy feel of the melted cheese, the "mapleness" of the lovage. It is all held together with egg.


2 Tbsp chopped lovage leaves
1/2 cup brown rice
1 1/4 cups water
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 eggs
2 Tbsp cheddar cheese cubes


  1. Remove the lovage leaves from the stalks, and chop them.
  2. Cook rice, water, salt, and lovage leaves in a rick cooker
  3. Eat some of the rice for dinner, and put the rest in the frig until needed for the omelette.
  4. Mix together the eggs, 1/2 cup lovage rice, cheese cubes. Add a tablespoon of water and mix some more.
  5. Grease a fry pan and cook the omelette.
