  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 5 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 scallion, sliced
  • 1 cup baby spinach, washed, with water still clinging to leaves
  • ½ cup liquid egg substitute, such as
  • ¼ cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon water


  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Spray a small nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Add oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add tomatoes and scallion and cook, stirring once or twice, until softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Place spinach on top, cover and let wilt, about 30 seconds. Stir to combine.
  2. Pour in egg substitute, reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking, stirring constantly with a heatproof rubber spatula, until the egg is starting to set, about 20 seconds. Continue cooking, lifting the edges so the uncooked egg will flow underneath, until mostly set, about 30 seconds more.
  3. Sprinkle cheese, salt and pepper over the omelet. Lift up an edge of the omelet and drizzle the remaining 1 tablespoon water under it. Cover, reduce heat to low and cook until the egg is completely set and the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes. Fold over using the spatula and serve.

We didn't add water, used 2 large eggs & everything came out perfect. Ours was cooked in an 8 inch Starfrit fry pan.

Too runny Absolutely too much liquid. I was concerned even with the oil, but after adding the spinach, too, it was a bit of a mess. Since it couldn't set up, I abandoned the omelet idea in favor of scrambled egg. Also wound up having to drain off liquid. We scooped it into tortillas, topping with the cheese and some salsa. Tasted fine, but not a good recipe for omelet. Pros: Great mix of veggie flavors Cons: Too much oil, wouldn't set

Yum! I added bella mushrooms like the person who commented before suggested and I also added garlic to mine. I didn't have egg substitute though so I had to use real eggs, I just skipped out on the cheese to reduce the fat and it came out delicious! :) Pros: Fast and Easy
