Ingredients

Omelet:
1/2 cup egg substitute
1/4 cup fat-free milk
1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon minced fresh thyme
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 large egg
1/4 cup all-purpose flour (about 1 ounce)
Cooking spray
2 cups vertically sliced onion
1 garlic clove, crushed
Salad:
3 cups loosely packed gourmet salad greens
1 1/2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon extravirgin olive oil
2 tablespoons crumbled goat cheese
1 1/2 teaspoons sliced almonds, toasted

Preparation

To prepare omelet, combine the first 7 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Add flour to egg mixture; stir well.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add onion to pan; sauté 7 minutes or until browned. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. Pour egg mixture over onion mixture in pan. Reduce heat, and cook 3 minutes or until set. Loosen omelet with a spatula, and fold in half; cook 1 minute. Cut omelet in half; place one half on each of 2 plates.

To prepare salad, combine salad greens, vinegar, and oil; toss well. Arrange 1 1/2 cups greens on top of each serving; top each serving with 1 tablespoon cheese and 3/4 teaspoon almonds.
