  • sea salt1 pinch sea salt
  • black pepper1 pinch black pepper
  • egg whites4 large egg whites
  • parmesan cheese2 tbsp parmesan cheese shredded

Instructions
 

  • Prepare by mincing the 1/4 cup white onion, slicing the 1/4 cup Portobello mushrooms , quartering the 1/4 cup cherry tomatoes and chopping the 1/4 cup baby spinach.

    omelet vegetables
  • Heat the 2 tsp avocado oil in a small non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Once the pan is at temperature, add the onion and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. When the onion is translucent, but not brown, add the chopped tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, 1/2 a pinch of sea salt and 1 pinch black pepper. Sauté for another 2 minutes.

  • Pour the soft peak egg whites over the cooked vegetables. Tilt the frying pan gently in a circular motion until the whites cover the bottom of the pan. As the edges of the omelet start to set, reduce the heat to medium-low. Use a spatula to lift the edges of the omelet, loosening all the way around the pan, and letting any runny egg white fill the space. It takes approx. 7 to 8 minutes for the egg whites to cook all the way through.

  • Once the omelet is fully cooked with no remaining runny egg whites, add the shredded 2 tbsp parmesan cheese to one half. Using the spatula carefully fold the non-cheesed half of the omelet over the top, sealing the parmesan inside. Slide the omelet onto a plate. Serve immediately.

Notes

  1. You can substitute 4 egg whites with 3/4 cup liquid egg whites.
  2. You can test your egg whites for soft peak stage by dipping the whisk into the whipped egg whites. Hold the whisk horizontally. If the whites form a peak but the tip droops, you’ve reached the soft peak.
  3. Avocado oil can be substituted for olive oil.
