This vegetable and egg scramble is low in fat because more egg whites than yolks are used.

2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 small red onion, cut into 1/2-inch wedges
1 plum tomato, seeded and diced medium
1/2 small zucchini, diced medium
2 ounces baby spinach (1 cup)
2 large eggs plus 4 large egg whites, lightly beaten
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 1/2 ounces feta, crumbled (3 tablespoons)


  1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high.

  2. Add onion, tomato, and zucchini and cook until vegetables are just tender, about 5 minutes.

  3. Stir in spinach and cook until beginning to wilt, 1 minute.

  4. Season eggs with salt and pepper and add to skillet.

  5. Cook, stirring with a rubber spatula, until eggs are set, about 2 minutes.

  6. To serve, divide between two plates and sprinkle with feta.

  • If you aren’t a feta fan (I’m not), then use your favorite cheese. I like a soft cheese which melts into gooey goodness.

Yield: 2 servings
