“I love breakfast. I start thinking about it as soon as I'm finished with desert - I know I'm crazy. I'm willing to sacrifice hours of sleep to whip up something delectable to start off my day. Luckily - this recipe doesn't require that. Just 10 minutes of your time and a handful of ingredients which you should keep onhand anyways. The result? A healthy breakast that is a definite leap up from a bowl of cereal or the plain-jane bagel.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Coat large skillet with cooking spray. Combine onion and water in skillet and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cover. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until onion is tender.
  2. Stir in peas and cook until they are heated through. Stir in spinach. Cook until spinach begins to wilt (about a minute).
  3. Meanwhile, combine egg whites, eggs, rice, milk, cheese, mint pepper and salt in medium bowl. Add this to skillet.
  4. Cook without stirring until eggs begin to set (about 2 minutes). Run spoon around edge, lifting eggs for even cooking. Remove from heat when eggs are almost set, but surface is still moist.
  5. Cover and let stand 3-4 minutes until surface is set.
