- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup egg whites
- 2 teaspoons butter or margarine
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 small onion, diced
- 3 button mushrooms, diced
- 1/4 cup frozen spinach, thawed and drained
- 2 tablespoons goat cheese, crumbled
- 1/8 of an avocado
- 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
- Pinch of salt (optional)
Cook the onions
Place oil in a medium-sized pan. Add the onions, and cook over medium-low heat until they begin to sweat. Add in the mushrooms, and continue cooking until tender.
Add the spinach
Add in the spinach, and stir to combine. Transfer to a bowl.
Add the cheese
Add the goat cheese, avocado and parsley to the veggies. Stir to combine.
Mix the eggs
Combine the egg, egg whites, butter and milk. Gently pour the mixture into frying the pan. Keep heat low so as to not burn the egg mixture.
Add the veggies to the eggs
Once the bottom of the egg has begun to brown and the top is mostly solidified, scoop the mixture onto the egg in a straight line. Top with extra goat cheese if desired.
Fold the sides of the egg over the mixture. Gently remove from heat with a wide, flat serving tool, and place the omelette onto a plate.
Sprinkle with salt and extra-chopped parsley for garnish if desired
Note: You can easily adjust this to yield more servings by multiplying the ingredients and assembling the omelettes one at a time.
