CHEDDAR AND SPINACH OMELET WITH EGG WHITES


CHEDDAR AND SPINACH OMELET WITH EGG WHITES
This is my entry for The 101 omelet series by Sangeeth of http://letusallcook.blogspot.com/. I started preparing omelets with egg whites for breakfast recently as a part of low-carb diet for my husband. Usually I prepare using 2 egg whites but these were not so filling, so I started adding more vegetables along with the recipe. This is one such omelet. This is a very easy and fast recipe suitable for the morning rush hour. I have used frozen spinach and readymade grated carrots to add some color. Frozen spinach is ideal for this omelet as more spinach can be used here than fresh ones. If needed, any other vegetables can also be added along with the spinach.

INGREDIENTS:
Egg whites or egg beaters, 1 cup.
Frozen spinach, ½ cup.
Grated carrots, ¼ cup.
Salt as per taste.
Mild low-fat cheddar cheese, ¼ cup.
Pepper as per taste.

PREPARATION:
Thaw the spinach and remove the excess water out of it. Put the egg whites on a bowl and whisk them well. Add the spinach, grated carrots, salt and pepper and whisk everything together. Meanwhile heat a flat pan and when the pan is hot enough, pour the omelet and spread the omelet all over the pan by moving the pan to its sides slowly. Add the grated cheddar cheese over the top and flip the omelet. Remove the omelet from the pan after 10 seconds when the other side is also cooked. Serve the omelet with any whole grain bread.
