I’ve been prioritizing protein and vegetables, making it a point to add one cup of veggies to every meal. It’s a great way to get your daily fiber – I aim for at least 25 grams each day. Omelets are such an easy way to achieve this goal! This vegetarian omelet has a whole cup of zucchini and a mix of egg and egg whites for extra-lean protein. More of my favorite omelets are Goat Cheese Herb Omelet with Nova Lox, Broccoli and Cheese Omelet, and Open-Faced Omelet with Feta, Roasted Tomatoes, and Spinach.

Omelet Ingredients

  • Onion: Chop a quarter cup of red onion.
  • Zucchini: Dice the zucchini into matchsticks.
  • Eggs: You’ll need one egg and three-quarters cup of egg whites, which is about six eggs. You can also buy liquid egg whites at the supermarket to save time.
  • Parmesan: Grated or shredded parmesan cheese will work.
  • Salt and Pepper: Keep it simple with salt and pepper for seasoning.

Should I cook my veggies before putting them in an omelet?

You should cook the vegetables for a few minutes before adding the eggs to soften them.

How to Make an Omelet

  • Vegetables: Heat the olive oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium- low heat. Stir in the onion and cook for two to three minutes. Add the zucchini, season with salt and pepper, and cook for a few minutes until tender.
  • Whisk: In a medium bowl, whisk the egg, egg whites, parmesan, salt, and pepper.
  • Cook: Pour the eggs over the veggies in the skillet. Cover the pan and cook for about five minutes until the eggs are set. Flip the omelet over onto your plate.

Omelet Variations:

  • Veggies: Swap yellow squash for zucchini or add 1 cup of your favorite veggies.
  • Eggs: Feel free to use more whole eggs instead of egg whites.
  • Protein: Add lean breakfast sausage or ham for even more protein.
  • Spice: If you like your food spicy, drizzle sriracha or hot sauce over the omelet.
  • Double the recipe to feed more people.
