- 1/2 cup diced zucchini
- 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
- 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
- 1/2 cup chopped baby greens (such as spinach, Swiss chard or kale)
- 1 egg lightly beaten
- 1/2 cup egg whites (approximately 2 egg whites) lightly beaten
- 2 Tbsp low-fat (1%) milk
- 2 Tbsp chopped fresh herbs (such as basil, thyme, sage, parsley)
Preheat oven to 400°.
Heat a 4- to 6-inch ovenproof omelette pan (stainless steel or cast iron) on high heat until hot. Remove from heat and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Reduce heat to medium, add vegetables and sauté until caramelized, about 3 to 5 minutes.
In a small bowl, lightly whisk the egg, egg whites and milk. Add egg mixture to the pan and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook eggs for 2 minutes without touching.
Sprinkle herbs over top of egg mixture and bake in oven for 5 to 8 minutes, or until eggs set and are puffed and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from pan and serve hot.
