In a small bowl lightly whip egg whites and add 2 tablespoons of non-fat milk.
Heat omelet pan or small non-stick pan and add egg whites in to pan.
Let cook without stirring for 1-2 minutes or until egg starts to form.
Separate egg from edges of omelet pan to make sure egg is not completely sticking.
Swirl pan to let uncooked egg in center reach hot edges of the pan.
When egg is almost fully cooked add vegetables to center and fold egg over completely covering vegetables.
Cook on both sides until egg is full cooked.
Serve with a side of potatoes and fresh salsa.
Tip: By excluding egg yolk in your omelet you significantly reduce fat and cholesterol, but you also lose much of the recognizable yellow color of an omelet. Try adding a pinch of turmeric to your egg mixture to add this yellow back.
Spray a small pan with nonstick spray, and bring to medium heat.
Add egg substitute, and cook to form an egg patty (flipping and folding until firm).
Remove egg patty and set aside.
Remove the pan from heat, re-spray, and then return to medium heat. Add chopped spinach and both types of tomatoes. Stirring occasionally, cook for about 1 minute (until spinach has wilted).
Add the cheese to the pan and cook for an additional 30 seconds (cheese should be melt-y). Remove from heat, and allow to cool slightly.
Meanwhile, heat tortilla in the microwave until slightly warm.
Place veggie/cheese mixture in the center of the tortilla.
Place egg patty on top, and wrap the tortilla up envelope style (folding the sides in first, and then rolling it up from the bottom).
Place wrap in the toaster oven (with the seam-side down) and bake for 1 – 2 minutes (until thoroughly heated). Enjoy!
This is the very first Monday Munchers’ Official post. So I hope you try out this Recipe from Hungry Girl and tell me what you think?
Here are my thoughts on this though. I don’t like using substitutes like Egg Beaters because I would much rather eat the real thing even if it means bringing up the calorie count by a bit. I would like to stay away from processed food as much as possible. That being said I’d like to hear your thoughts on it
Spray a medium pan with nonstick spray and bring to medium hear. Add mushrooms and onions. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are slightly browned. Transfer veggies to a bowl and set aside.
Remove pan from hear, and re spritz with nonstick spray. Cook fillet strips over medium high heat for 1 to 2 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking.
Break cheese slice into small strips. Place cheese on top of meat – still in the pan- and continue to cook until cheese has melted slightly
Remove from heat and mix the cheesy beef strips in with the veggies.
Serve in lettuce “cups.
Using lettuce as cups is a great way to substitute the bread that we usually use for philly cheesteak sandwiches. :P Guilt free food from Hungry Girl!
