Healthycooking's picture
Asparagus mushroom omelet is a savory and delicious omelet recipe. Served for breakfast along with toasts, it would make a lovely start to the day. Herbed with chives and parsley, the vegetables and mushrooms in it make it quite filling.
  Egg 1 Large
  Egg whites 5 Large
  Minced chives 1 Tablespoon (Fresh / Freeze Dried)
  Cold water 2 Tablespoon
  Black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Unsalted margarine 2 Tablespoon
  Finely chopped cooked asparagus/Broccoli 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Finely chopped mushrooms 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Finely chopped ripe tomato 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Minced parsley 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)

In a medium size bowl, combine the egg, egg whites, chives, water, and pepper; whisk just enough to mix lightly.
Melt 1/2 tablespoon of the margarine in a heavy 7 inch skillet over moderately high heat.
Add 1/4 each of the asparagus and mushrooms and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
Add 1/4 of the egg mixture (about 1/2 cup) and shake the skillet over the heat, stirring, for 30 seconds; then let the omelet cook, undisturbed, for 30 seconds more or until the edges and bottom are set.
With a spatula, either fold the omelet in half or roll it to the edge of the pan and invert it onto a heated plate.
