Spinach Omelet

By sexyswamprat

  • 1/2 cup fresh mushroom slices

  • 1 pinch black pepper

  • 1 pinch ground thyme

  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped spinach

  • 1/2 cup liquid egg substitute

  • 3 tbsp low fat shredded swiss cheese (or other cheese)

  • 1 turkey bacon , cooked, drained, and crumbled (optional)

  • 1 pinch paprika, ground

  1. Preheat an 8-inch non-stick skillet over medium heat and coat with cooking spray.

  2. Add the mushrooms, pepper, and thyme to the skillet. Cover and cook for about 2 minutes until the mushrooms are tender and browned, stirring often.

  3. Add the spinach. Cook uncovered for about 30 seconds, stirring constantly until the spinach is wilted. Put the mixture in a small, covered dish to keep it warm.

  4. Place the skillet over medium-low heat and spray it again with cooking spray. Add the egg substitute and without stirring, cook for about 2 minutes until set around the edges.

  5. Using a spatula, lift the edges of the omelet to allow the uncooked egg to flow below the cooked portion. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the eggs are nearly set.

  6. Arrange the spinach mixture over half of the omelet. Arrange the cheese over the spinach mixture. If desired, arrange the bacon over the spinach.

  7. Fold the opposite half over the toppings. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the cheese is melted and the eggs are completely set.

  8. Garnish with paprika and serve hot.

This is an easy recipe. You can add any vegetables you want and make it healthy. Tofu can be added to make more and it just adds to the other flavors. Cilantra can be added as well as salsa which is a great additive…I also use soy cheese, but you have to watch the brand you use. It can also be made ahead of time and stored in smaller squares and just warmed up in the microwave every morning…Good way to eat healthy and not take the time to cook every day…
