Spinach, scallions feta and eggs make a fabulous breakfast or a low carb lunch with a Greek salad on the side.
To make this low fat frittata I've replaced most of the eggs with egg whites. For convenience I usually buy Trader Joe's cage free liquid egg whites, but you can use Egg Beaters or separate them yourself if you prefer. When buying parmesan cheese, I like to buy Parmigiano-Reggiano, it has a sharp, strong-flavoured, nutty taste. Inferior versions of parmesan can have a bitter taste.

- 2 whole eggs
- 8 large egg whites
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
- 3 scallions, chopped
- 10 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed
- 2 oz crumbled feta
- 2 tbsp Parmigiano-Reggiano, grated
- salt and freshly ground pepper
Squeeze all water from spinach. In a 9 inch non-stick sauté pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and scallions and cook until soft, about 4 minutes.
Meanwhile in a medium bowl, beat the eggs. Add salt, pepper, cheeses and spinach and mix well. Pour the mixture into the skillet and cook until the bottom sets, about 5 minutes. Hold a large plate over the pan and invert the frittata onto the plate, then slide it back into the pan. Cook about 5 minutes longer. Serve hot.
