Yield: 1 serving

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 5 minutes


  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 whole large egg
  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp chopped mushrooms
  • 2 tbsp chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 tbsp minced shallot
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • Pinch of ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 slices tomato
  • Cilantro for garnish


  1. Whisk the egg and egg whites in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Heat the olive oil over medium-high in a small skillet. Add the mushrooms, bell pepper, and shallot. Cook for 3 minutes, until the mushrooms shrink and darken. Reduce the heat to medium.
  3. Stir in the cilantro and black pepper. Pour the eggs into the skillet. Gently scrape the edges of the pan with a spatula and tilt the pan to move the uncooked egg to the edges. Cook for about 3 minutes, until the eggs are fully cooked. Flip the omelet if desired. Transfer to a plate.
  4. Sprinkle the omelet with one tablespoon of feta cheese. Place two slices of tomato on one side of the omelet. Fold the omelet over to make a half moon. Sprinkle with the remaining feta cheese and garnish with cilantro.

To further reduce cholesterol and saturated fat, use four egg whites instead of a whole egg and two egg whites.
