Nutrition Information

  • 1 Healthy Fat
  • 1 Protein
  • 1 Vegetables

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup liquid egg substitute
  • 4 eggs
  • ¼ cup whole milk
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped scallions
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped parsley
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ½ lb. asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1" pieces
  • ¼ cup water
  • 4 Tbsp. crumbled goat cheese
  • Chives, for garnish

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg substitute, eggs, and milk. Stir in the scallions, thyme, parsley, pepper, and salt.
  2. Place the asparagus and water in a large microwaveable bowl. Cover with vented plastic wrap and microwave on high power for 4 minutes, or until crisp-tender. Stop and stir after 2 minutes. Drain, pat dry, and add to the egg mixture.
  3. Heat a medium nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Pour one-quarter of the egg mixture into the skillet, allowing it to cover the bottom of the pan. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the bottom just begins to set. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the cheese. Add one-quarter of the asparagus pieces. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the eggs are almost set.
  4. Using a large spatula, fold the omelet in half. Cook for 3 minutes, or until the omelet is golden and the cheese is melted. Turn onto a plate and keep warm.
  5. Coat the skillet with cooking spray and repeat the process with the remaining ingredients to make 3 more omelets. Garnish with the chives.
