Red and yellow bell peppers with basil and parmesan bring an egg white omelet to life and add a nice splash of color!
Ingredients:
1 tsp olive oil
4 egg whites
1/2 tsp dried basil
2 tsp grated Parmesan cheese, divided
1 sweet red pepper, thinly sliced
1 yellow pepper, thinly sliced
1/4 tsp black pepper
Directions:
1 In a large non-slice frying pan over medium heat, warm oil; add the red peppers and yellow peppers; cook stirring frequently for 4 to 5 minutes.
2 Keep warm over low heat. In a small bowl, lightly whisk together the egg whites, basil and black pepper. Coat a small non-stick frying pan with non-stick spray.
3 Warm over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Add half of the egg mixture, swirling the pan to evenly coat the bottom.
4 Cook for 30 seconds or until the eggs are set. Carefully loosen and flip; cook for 1 minute, or until firm.
5 Sprinkle half of the peppers over the eggs. Fold to enclose the filling. Transfer to a plate. Sprinkle with 1 tsp of the Parmesan cheese.
6 Repeat with the remaining egg mixture, peppers and 1 tsp Parmesan cheese.
7 ENJOY!
