Oxmoor House MARCH 2010

  • Yield: 2 servings (serving size: 1/2 omelet)
  • Cook time:7 Minutes
  • Prep time:5 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup diced seeded tomato (1 small)
  • Fresh chopped cilantro

Preparation

1. Combine first 6 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk.

2. Heat an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; coat pan with cooking spray. Add egg mixture, and cook until edges begin to set. Gently lift edges of egg mixture with a wide spatula, tilting pan to allow uncooked egg mixture to come in contact with pan. Cook 2 minutes or until egg mixture is almost set; sprinkle with cheese. Spoon tomato over half of omelet; fold in half.

3. Cut omelet in half crosswise, and slide one half onto each of 2 plates. Garnish with cilantro, if desired, and serve immediately.

Serve with: Mandarin Oranges with Kiwifruit and Grapes
