    mersaydees's Note:

    Based on a recipe from John La Puma, M.D.’s cookbook, ChefMD’s Big Book of Culinary Medicine. I use whole eggs since I believe the entire egg is good for you. DH says this recipe is like something you'd get at a fancy restaurant -- it's delicious! This is 10 PointsPlus (Weight Watchers) for each serving. Feta cheese may replace the goat cheese, and peas may replace the edammame. Tip: try different types of pesto in this dish: sundried tomato, cilantro, even arugula.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 cup edamame, frozen shelled (organic preferred)
    • 4 large organic egg whites
    • 1/2 cup organic fat-free cottage cheese (Horizon or Friendship brand)
    • 1/4 cup goat cheese, crumbled
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons prepared basil pesto
    • 1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
    • 4 slices whole- wheat bread, toasted
    • organic fruit preserves (optional)


    1. 1
      Heat a large nonstick skillet coated lightly with cooking spray over medium heat until hot. Add the edammame and cook until beginning to brown, 2 to 3 minutes.
    2. 2
      In medium bowl beat together the egg whites and cottage cheese; add to the skillet and stir in the edammame. Continue to cook without stirring for 2 minutes or until set on bottom. Using a spatula, gently lift the edges of the omelet to allow the uncooked portion of eggs to settle to the bottom and edges and set. Continue cooking for 2 minutes or until the center is almost set.
    3. 3
      Combine the goat cheese and pesto; spoon the mixture down the center of the omelet. Using a large spatula, fold half of the omelet over the filling.
    4. 4
      Reduce heat to low; cook for 2 minutes or until the cheese melts and the center is set.
    5. 5
      Use the large spatula to cut the omelet in half; transfer to serving dishes and top with basil.
    6. 6
      Serve with toast, and, if desired, preserves.
