Basic Egg White Omelet Recipe
Healthy Breakfast Recipe
When cooked but still creamy place healthful asparagus in the center and leave on the heat for a second longer.
Heat a tiny amount of oil in a non-stick omelet pan. Beat the egg whites with a fork and add the chives, salt and ground pepper.
In a separate pan, toss asparagus in some oil until heated through, then season with salt and ground pepper. Set aside and keep warm. Pour the egg white into the oiled omelet pan and, with a fork, quickly draw the edges to the center, so the omelet cooks evenly.
When cooked but still creamy place the asparagus in the center and leave on the heat for a second longer. With a fork fold the omelet towards the far lip of the pan, giving the pan a light tap to loosen the omelet. Slide out onto a warm plate.
