Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1.5 cups of Egg Substitute
    3/4 cup of 1% Cottage Cheese
    1/4 cup of Raw Onions Chopped
    1/2 cup Spinach - cooked, OR
    1 cup Spinach Raw (if raw, make sure you heat it up in the pan before you start your omelet- make it nice and wilty!)
    6 Cherry Tomatoes (diced)
    Pam or Other Non-Stick Cooking Spray

Directions

Makes 1 HUGE and delicious Omelet!

Heat pan with good amount of cooking spray on burner at a high setting (I usually use between 6 and 8 on a scale of 1-10).

When cooking spray is sizzling, add in the 1.5 cup of egg substitue and the 1/4 cup of raw chopped onions.

Make a traditional omelet - let the bottom of the omelet fry, occasionally lifting up the corners and tilting the liquid egg underneath to also cook.

When your omelet is close to perfection, or almost to the color of brown you like on the bottom, put 1/5 cup of Cottage Cheese (try not to get too much of the liquid), the 1/2 cup of Cooked Spinach, and the chopped tomatoes evenly on 1/2 of the omelet. While still in the pan, let it cook like this for another 1-2 minutes, softening and warming all the ingredients!

Next, flip the bare half of the omelet over onto the full side, creating that perfect half circle!!

Now you're done! Slide that bad boy onto a plate, top off with the remaining 1/4 cup of Cottage Cheese, and you have a delicious, low fat, and amazing huge omelet all for your enjoyment! If I can do it, you can, believe me! <3

    I would make this with a free-range local egg. Who knows what really goes into egg substitute? Otherwise, sounds very good. - 5/22/13

  • I was so excited to try this. A little disappointed since the picture looks more like a quiche. Still was a nice change from plain ole' chicken...but was a little underwhelming. BTW, this makes a very large omelet. Next time I would do less egg substitute. - 6/14/13
