One day at a time lowfat cookbook p.32. In a medium-size bowl, combine
onion and 1 teaspoon of the butter. Microwave on HIGH 2 minutes. Stir in
bell pepper and carrots and microwave on HIGH 2 minutes. Add broccoli and
microwave on HIGH 1to 2 minutes until vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in
marjoram and salt. (You can also cook in a skillet over medium heat in the
order given on top of the stove until vegetables are crisp-tender.) Cover
and keep warm. Beat eggs and extra egg white with skim milk and parsley.
Heat a nonstick 8-inch skillet over medium heat until a drop of water
dances when sprinkled in the pan. Swirl the remaining '/2 teaspoon butter
around bottom of pan. When melted, pour in egg mixture. As eggs cook, pull
edges of the omelet toward the center of the pan with a table knife,
allowing uncooked egg to reach pan. Repeat until eggs are set. Eggs can be
slightly soft on top, as they will continue to cook. Spoon vegetables over
half the omelet. Gently fold omelet over vegetables and remove to a ser
ving plate. Top with sprouts and garnish with parsley. Makes 2 servings.
