Cooking Light JANUARY 2004

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 wedge)

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup uncooked couscous
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 3 large eggs
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 cups red bell pepper strips
  • 1 cup thinly vertically sliced onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup (1 1/2 ounces) shredded Manchego or Monterey Jack cheese

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°.

Bring 1/2 cup water to boil in a small saucepan; gradually stir in couscous. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

Combine 1 tablespoon water, salt, black pepper, egg whites, and eggs in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk.

Heat a 10-inch ovenproof nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper, onion, and garlic; sauté 5 minutes. Stir in couscous and egg mixture; cook over medium heat 5 minutes or until almost set. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes or until set. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Note:

Cooked couscous makes this meatless entrée more filling. Substitute 1 cup leftover cooked orzo, spaghetti, or vermicelli, if you prefer.
