Basil Egg White Omelette with Spinach, Tomatoes, and Avocado

 

This is definitely one of my favorites dishes! It is my go-to breakfast or even dinner (yes I do crave breakfast foods for dinner sometimes) when I want a fast, flavorful, protein-packed, and filling recipe

Ingredients:

  • 4 large egg whites
  • Handful of spinach
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes – cut in half
  • 1/4 cup onions – chopped
  • Fresh basil
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 210 C.
  • In a medium nonstick skillet, heat olive oil on medium-high heat. Saute the chopped onions until they become lightly brown.  Add the spinach. Keep mixing until wilted (or until you say “Oh my god look how tiny the spinach becomes!)

  • With a spatula, pull the sides of the omelette carefully. When you notice that the bottom part is cooked, turn off the heat, and place the skillet in the oven for 10 minutes for the top to cook through

 

  • Take it out of the oven, gently slide the omelette onto a service plate, and serve with avocado or cheese of your choice
