- 2 cups egg whites
- 1/2 cup chopped onion (I use pre-chopped frozen onions)
- 1/2 cup roasted red pepper (you can use fresh and microwave it with the rest of the veggies or use roasted and mix after it is microwaved)
- 1 cup chopped zucchini
- 1 cup fresh chopped spinach
- 1 cup mushrooms
- 1/4 cup of your favorite low fat shredded cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Place onion, zucchini, spinach, and mushrooms in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for about 7 minutes to soften the vegetables and cook out excess water. Blot with a paper towel to remove any excess water. Add roasted red pepper and allow to cool about 5 minutes. Mix in egg whites, salt, and pepper. Pour into 12 greased muffin tins and bake at 375° for 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle a few shreds of cheese on each and place under the broiler about 30 seconds or until cheese melts.
Have some for dinner with a spinach and strawberry salad and store the rest in the refrigerator in an airtight container. These can be eaten quickly before work either by themselves or on a piece of toasted Ezekial bread.
