  • 1 individual serving package broccoli with cheese sauce (1/2 cup), microwaved according to directions
  • 6 egg whites or 1 cup egg substitute
  • 1/4 teaspoon dill weed (dried)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • 1/8 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons heart-healthy butter-flavored spread or margarine

[step-item number=”1″ image_url=”” title=”” ]Strain most of the sauce from the broccoli into a medium bowl. To the sauce, add the egg whites, dill weed, salt and pepper, and beat until combined.[/step-item]

[step-item number=”3″ image_url=”” title=”” ]Melt the butter spread in a 10-inch nonstick skillet to coat the bottom. When hot, add the egg mixture. Cook over medium-high heat, lifting the edges with a spatula while tilting the skillet to let the uncooked portion flow underneath. When the top is only slightly runny, slide the omelet onto a dinner plate, then return it to the skillet, flipping it over to cook the top.[/step-item]
