  • 2 large bell peppers

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 4 large eggs

  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat milk

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • ½ cup chopped onion

  • 2 cups chopped spinach

  • cup crumbled feta cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

  2. Halve peppers lengthwise; remove and discard seeds. Place the peppers cut-side up in an 8-inch-square microwave-safe dish. Microwave on High until just tender, 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Pat dry and sprinkle with salt.

  3. Whisk eggs, milk and pepper in a medium bowl.

  4. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until softened and beginning to brown, about 2 minutes. Add spinach and cook, stirring, until wilted, 1 to 2 minutes more. Divide the spinach mixture among the pepper halves. Sprinkle with feta, then top with the egg mixture. Bake until the filling is set, 30 to 35 minutes.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
