Skinny Omelette June 29, 2008

I don’t normally like omelette’s. They are too cheese heavy and use far too many eggs. They taste good, but I never feel great afterwards. I came across this recipe on 101cookbooks for her version of an omelette, a skinny omelette.  This is the second or third time I’ve made this and it’s great everytime.

1 whole egg and 1 egg white – scrambled with a little milk
2-4 T. pesto (I used the broccoli pesto from the pasta I made earlier in the week.)
1-2 cups fresh spinach – sauteed
Fresh chives

In a big non stick skillet, spray with oil and pour in the egg and tip so the egg covers the whole pan, similar to a crepe.  Toss a pinch of salt onto the egg and cook for a  minute or two until the egg is cooked through. Use a spatula to go under the egg and then quicky slide off onto a plate or chopping block. It may tear the first time or two until you get used to it. Spread pesto into the egg and top with spinach, then wrap the egg around the filling. Top with fresh chives and enjoy.

Notes: I’ve used a tomato chutney in place of the pesto before and it was great. I really liked this pesto though, it had a nice mix of the cheese and oil too.

Servings: 1 skinny omelette
