Egg White Omelette
By Paula Deen
- Prep time: 10 minutes
- Cook time: 20 minutes
- Servings: 4
- 4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 4 plum tomatoes (about 1 1/2 cups), finely chopped
- 1 (10-oz) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed, all excess water squeezed out
- 12 egg whites
- 2 tablespoons water
In a small skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onions, tomatoes, spinach and a pinch salt. Cook until the onion is soft, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add pepper, to taste, and another pinch salt; and cook for another minute. Remove the spinach mixture from the heat to a bowl. Cover and keep warm.
In a medium bowl, whisk the egg whites, water and a pinch salt and pepper until frothy. Lightly coat a medium nonstick skillet or omelet pan with cooking spray and heat the skillet over medium heat. Add 1/4 of the egg whites, swirling to evenly cover the bottom of the pan. Cook until set, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Using a rubber scraper lift the eggs up and let the runny uncooked egg flow underneath. Spoon 1/4 of the spinach mixture onto half of the omelet, fold over, and slide onto a serving plate. Repeat with remaining egg whites and spinach mixture.
