Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 12 minutes

Servings: 4



  • 4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion
  • Salt
  • 1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach
  • 4 plum tomatoes
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Nonstick cooking spray


In a small skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and a pinch salt; cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until onion is softened. Add the spinach; cook and stir until hot. Add the tomatoes, pepper to taste, and another pinch salt; cook and stir for 1 minute. Remove from heat; cover and keep warm.

In a medium bowl, whisk the egg whites, water, and a pinch salt until frothy. Lightly coat a medium nonstick skillet or omelet pan with cooking spray; heat skillet over medium heat. Add one-fourth of the egg whites, swirling to evenly cover the bottom of the pan. Cook for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until set, using a rubber scraper to mix the eggs occasionally and to lift them up and let the runny egg flow underneath. Spoon one-fourth of the spinach mixture
onto half of the omelet, fold over, and slide onto a plate. Repeat with remaining egg whites and spinach mixture.
