DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Reduce heat to low; cook for 2 minutes or until the cheese melts and the center is set.
  • Use the large spatula to cut the omelet in half; transfer to serving dishes and top with basil.
  • Serve with toast, and, if desired, preserves.
