- 12 g sun-dreid tomatoes packed in oil
- 40 g baby spinach
- 15 g low-fat cream cheese
- 15 g shredded mozzerella
- 1/4 tsp garlic salt
- 1/4 tsp oregano
- 165 g liquid egg whites
- 1 flatbread or tortilla (the macros for this recipe were calculated using Mission whole wheat tortillas, if you want to switch it up make sure to adjust your macros!
- Heat a nonstick frying pan over medium heat
- Chop the sun-dried tomatoes and add them to the hot frying pan along with the baby spinach. Cook the veggies until the spinach wilts, then transfer it to a bowl along with the cream cheese, mozzerella, garlic salt, and oregano. Use a fork to mix everything together, making sure to break up any big chunks of cream cheese. Set aside.
- Spray the same frying pan with cooking spray if necessary (but you may not need it if there’s a little residual oil leftover from the tomatoes). Add the egg whites and cover the pan. Let the egg whites steam until cooked through, about 2-3 minutes.
- Meanwhile, spread the spinach mixture over your flatbread. Place the cooked egg white over the spinach, in the center of the flatbread. Fold the egg white in thirds so you can wrap the tortilla around it.
- Add the wrap back to the hot pan and toast it on both sides. Cut in half and serve immediately.
Becuase of the high water content of both spinach and egg whites, these wraps don’t freeze well. However, you can make the spinach and mozzerella mixture ahead of time, so all you have to do is whip up the egg whites and assemble everything for a quick and tasty breakfast.
