By Meridian - 26751

Start your day with a delicious double-shot of nutrition: tomatoes are rich in antioxidants, and spinach is loaded with vitamins, calcium, iron, and more.

Spinach & Tomato Omelet
Ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 5 cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 1 scallion, sliced

  • 1 cup baby spinach, washed, with water still clinging to leaves

  • 1/2 cup liquid egg substitute, such as Egg Beaters

  • 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

  • 1 tablespoon water

Directions
  1. Spray a small nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Add oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add tomatoes and scallion and cook, stirring once or twice, until softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Place spinach on top, cover and let wilt, about 30 seconds. Stir to combine.

  2. Pour in egg substitute, reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking, stirring constantly with a heatproof rubber spatula, until the egg is starting to set, about 20 seconds. Continue cooking, lifting the edges so the uncooked egg will flow underneath, until mostly set, about 30 seconds more.

  3. Sprinkle cheese, salt and pepper over the omelet. Lift up an edge of the omelet and drizzle the remaining 1 tablespoon water under it. Cover, reduce heat to low and cook until the egg is completely set and the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes. Fold over using the spatula and serve.

This would be so great if not the egg substitute!
Why? Eggs are real food and good for us…
I eat eggs every day and omelets like this.

This is a very tasty. I use Pam spray instead of oil and mild salsa instead of tomatoes.
(I have to watch fat intake), but it's good any way you fix it. Thanks
