Florentine Egg-White Scramble

scrambled egg whites and vegetables

(My own photo coming soon!!)

I made this recipe the other day from what I had lying around in the fridge. This seems to be happening to me a lot lately and I get so excited about it! I’m finally reaching a point with cooking where I don’t need recipes anymore – all I need is a couple ingredients and a little creativity! Not saying I don’t follow recipes though, I still love searching for new recipes to try!

Anyway, this is a great breakfast that is inspired by the P90X nutrition plan. This doesn’t have to be just egg whites, but if you are trying to go through a cutting phase (reducing body fat percentage) this is perfect for that!

Now, I have to say THANK YOU Giada DeLaurentiis for showing me how to cook cherry tomatoes in a way that makes them taste AMAZING! Most people do not know this little trick, but once you do you will learn how to tap into their natural sugars and complex flavor.

Ingredients

Vegetable Oil Cooking Spray

Handful of cherry tomatoes, sliced in half

1 clove of fresh garlic, minced

1 large handful of spinach (it cooks WAY down!)

2 -3 egg whites

salt, pepper

feta cheese

Directions 

In a separate bowl whisk egg whites a sprinkle of salt and pepper and a little milk if desired.

Get the pan warmed up on medium heat. Spray with cooking spray and add the tomato halves FACE DOWN. Allow them to cook until they soften up. Once soft enough, take a fork and press down on each one. This will release the tomato juice and create a light sauce. Add the minced garlic and cook (make sure the heat is low enough or you will burn the garlic!) for a minute or two until it becomes aromatic. Add the spinach and cover for 1 minute. Pour egg whites over top and stir continuously until incorporated and fully cooked.

Serve it up hot and topped with a little feta cheese! Enjoy!
