The egg whites in this breakfast-for-dinner favorite provide lean protein, while black beans add fiber and iron. Add broccoli or red peppers to sneak in a serving of veggies. Black beans and cheddar make for a southwestern-inspired hearty omelet filling, but feel free to vary this recipe by using kidney beans or Monterey Jack cheese instead.

- 1 large egg
- 1⁄2 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
