1BigDogs Spinach Mushroom Scramble

Submitted by: ONEREALLYBIGDOG

Introduction

I adapted a favorite recipe, Beth's Crustless Spinach Mini-Quiche. I liked her recipe however I preferred not to use the oven all the time, so I made some adjustments. I found that this recipe can be cooked in the microwave or in a small saucepan or skillet. I thawed the package of frozen spinach in the microwave and squeezed out all liquid by wrapping it in several paper towels. When spinach is dry, place it into a microwaveable bowl and add one cup of Egg Beaters and 1/2 cup of skim milk. I then added 6 large button mushrooms cut into slices and stirred the mixture. You may season your mixture now or wait and season it upon serving. I like using cayenne powder, salt and pepper, you might like garlic powder or other seasonings, use your favorite. The next step is up to you, either cook the mixture in the microwaveable bowl for about ten minutes, checking for eggs being done occasionally or spray a small saucepan with cooking spray and pour the mixture into the pan and cook covered on low to medium heat until cooked. I chose to eliminate cheese which reduces many calories which allows me to enjoy this entire serving MYSELF. You may find that you are able to share this recipe. Good luck and happy eating!

Ingredients

    1 package of frozen spinach (thawed and drained)
    1 cup of Egg Beaters
    1/2 cup of skim milk
    6 fresh mushrooms sliced
    cheese optional, remember to add the calories to your daily stats.
    Your choice of seasonings: cayenne pepper, salt, pepper, garlic powder, etc.

Directions

This recipe make one serving for me, however you might not eat the quantities that I do and you may find that this serves 2 or 3. That would be easy especially if you served toast, or muffin with it. I choose to omit the empty calories of the bread and I get to enjoy the flavors and quantities of the spinach, eggs and spices. Remember, you may chose to add cheese but remember to add the calories to your stats for the day. To me, this is a very filling, satisfying meal. Have fun cooking and eating healthy!
