SHALLOT & THYME OMELETTE

4 egg whites

1 teaspoon olive oil

1/2 shallot, chopped

1 tablespoon fresh thyme

1 tablespoon goat cheese (optional)

2 tomatoes, sliced

 

Heat a skillet to medium heat. Once hot, add the olive oil and shallots and sauté 3-4 minutes. Pour in the egg whites and swirl the pan to spread the eggs evenly. Sprinkle the thyme, optional goat cheese, salt and pepper. Once the egg starts to firm up, use a spatula to fold it in half. Once the bottom side turns golden brown, flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Transfer the omelette to a plate and top with the tomato slices.

2 teaspoons cumin

1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
