Skinny Mediterranean Egg Scramble


Skinny Mediterranean Egg Scramble
Here’s a vegetarian egg scramble that’s simple to make, delicious and satisfying.  I used mostly egg whites and only 1 egg. I found adding just one egg really makes a difference.  This scramble comes together really quickly once the onions and bell peppers are cooked in the microwave. Each serving has 179 calories and 5 grams of fat.

  • 1 tablespoon reduced-fat butter or Smart Balance Light
  • 1 cup purple or yellow onions, chopped
  • ½ cup yellow bell peppers, chopped
  • ½ cup red bell pepper, chopped
  • 6 egg whites (¾ cup)
  • 1 large egg, I like Eggland’s Best eggs, see substitution tip
  • ¼ cup (1 oz) crumbled fat-free feta cheese, see shopping tip
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • On a microwave-safe plate add onions and peppers. Cook for about 4-5 minutes until soft.
  • In a nonstick pan, melt 1 tablespoon of reduced-fat butter or Smart Balance Light. Add cooked onions and peppers and sauté over medium-high heat until onions are golden, about 2-3 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the egg whites and egg. Pour them into the pan. Scramble until cooked.
  • Divide egg mixture among 2 plates. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of feta cheese on top of each.  Add salt and pepper, if desired to taste.
  • Serve with sliced tomatoes and 1 slice of whole-wheat toast, if desired.


Makes 2 servings

Substitution Tips
If you only want to make this scramble using egg whites, use 8 (1 cup) instead of 6 egg whites.
In addition, you can use all red bell peppers or all yellow. I used the combination for color.

Shopping Tips

Most supermarkets now carry fat-free feta cheese. You’ll find it either in the cheese aisle or the gourmet cheese section.
