Spinach, Goat Cheese & Olive Omelet

Spinach, Goat Cheese & Olive Omelet

Introduction

This is fast, nutritious, high-protein and satisfying. This is fast, nutritious, high-protein and satisfying.

Ingredients

    Fresh spinach, washed
    Goat cheese
    Black Kalamata olives, pitted
    Egg substitute
    Crushed red chilies peppers
    Fresh-ground pepper

Directions

In a microwavable pan, tear up the spinach roughly and add a small splash of water. Microwave covered for about 1 minute (my microwave is older - you cooking time be vary - the spinach just needs to wilt.

Drain off the water.

Crumble the goat cheese in the pan, and add the black olives (cropped slightly).

Stir in .5 cup of Egg Substitute. This is the equivalent of 2 eggs.

Add a shake or two of the crushed red chilies (this is optional - for a milder omelet, omit the chilies.)

Cover and return to the microwave for 2 minutes. Remove, stir (this is so it cooks evenly), recover and return to microwave for another 1 minute and 45 seconds (again, your cooking times may differ - if it's runny, cook it longer).

The eggs should be firm in the bottom of the pan. Fold the omelet in half and slide it on to a plate. Add a sprinkle of fresh-ground black pepper (the olives supply the salt). Good for brunch or breakfast (obviously) but I've also eaten this for lunch and for dinner.

Variations:
Substitute feta or parmesan for the goat cheese
Substitute mushrooms for the olives to cut the sodium.
Substitute whole eggs for "egg substitute"
Double up the amounts to create more servings (and be prepared to increase the cooking time)
