Recipe by Manami
I found this recipe on EatingWell web site - what I needed were exact measurements, since I usually cook without any recipes. Let me qualify it, when I cook for myself and/or my friends. Anything that we do for the home is a totally different story. Low in calories, low in fat, easy and very healthy! Will make it even more palatable - have with a piece of fresh tropical fruit! Yum! ;)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped red onion
- 2 large egg whites, beaten

- 1⁄4 teaspoon fresh dill (optional) or 1⁄4 teaspoon fresh parsley, chopped fine (optional)
