4 large egg whites
2 large whole eggs
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup salsa (sugar-free)
1/4 cup shredded cheese (optional)
1 tbsp olive oil or butter
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh cilantro or parsley for garnish (optional)
In a medium-sized bowl, beat the egg whites and whole eggs together with a fork or whisk until well combined. Season with salt and pepper.
Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil or butter in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they are tender and golden brown. Remove the mushrooms from the skillet and set aside.
In the same skillet, lower the heat to medium-low, and pour the beaten eggs into the skillet, swirling to cover the entire surface evenly.
As the eggs begin to set, gently lift the edges with a spatula, allowing the uncooked egg to flow underneath. Continue to cook until the eggs are almost fully set, but still slightly moist on top.
Once the eggs are almost set, spoon the cooked mushrooms and salsa over one half of the omelet. If using cheese, sprinkle it over the mushrooms and salsa. Fold the other half of the omelet over the filling.
Cook the omelet for another 1-2 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the eggs are fully set.
Carefully slide the omelet onto a cutting board or large plate and cut it in half, creating two servings. Garnish each serving with fresh cilantro or parsley, if desired, and serve immediately.
