Chock ful of protein, eggs are an excellent way to get this essential nutrient. Simply scrambled or whisked into quiche, having eggs at home is such an easy way to whip up a quick nutritious meal in a jiffy.
Though the whole eggs have a higher amount of protein and other necessary nutrients like iron, selenium and vitamins, egg whites are not that bad either. And if you are in a low cholesterol diet, egg whites are the way to go.
Anand and I prefer egg whites because we just can't stomach the smell of cooked eggs after ostracizing them for more than a decade. But I make it a point to give my girls whole eggs everyday.
I have recreated a basic scrambled egg whites recipe with mushrooms and spinach. I am power packing this dish with the goodness of egg whites, mushrooms and spinach. What better way to start the day?
We had this when we were in Hyatt Orlando and it was so so delicious.
Ingredients ( for 2)
2 tbsps EVOO
1/2 medium yellow onions, sliced
2-3 button mushrooms, sliced
1 cup firmly packed spinach
3 egg whites
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat EVOO on non stick pan and fry the onions followed by the mushrooms. The mushrooms will give out water, so fry till the water evaporates.
Then add in the spinach and let it cook for another 2-3 minutes. Again, fry till the water from the spinach evaporates.
Season with salt & pepper at this point.
Best the egg whites and add into the pan.
Fold in the egg whites to scramble in big pieces. Or break it up into smaller pieces. It's totally your game:))
Serve hot anytime of the day with a little hot sauce for spicing up your dish.
