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.

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.

Instructions
 

  • On a microwave-safe plate add onions and peppers. Cook for about 4-5 minutes until soft.
