Ingredients:
¼ cup fresh spinach, chopped
1 teaspoon chives or green onions, chopped
¼ teaspoon fresh dill, chopped (or 1/8 tsp dried dill)
2 large eggs (or ½ cup egg substitute)
1 Tablespoon crumbled feta cheese
½ teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 whole grain tortilla, large

Instructions:

  • Chop spinach, chives and dill.

  • Blend eggs with a fork in a medium bowl. Add feta, scallions, dill, pepper and spinach and pepper.

  • Heat oil in a 6-8 inch nonstick pan over medium-low heat. Pour in egg mixture and cook, without stirring, until the bottom is light golden, 2 to 4 minutes. As the omelet cooks, lift the edges and tilt the pan so egg flows to the sides. After eggs are done, transfer to a clean plate.

  • Warm tortilla in pan, 10 to 15 seconds per side.

  • Add cooked eggs to the center of the tortilla; wrap and cook each side until lightly browned.
