Vegetarian Black Bean High Protein Omelet Recipe
















(Serving size 4) 330 calories.


Ingredients:

  • 1 can (14–16oz) black beans, drained

  • Juice of 1 lime

  • 1⁄4 tsp cumin

  • Hot sauce (If you like the spice)

  • 8 eggs

  • Salt and black pepper to taste

  • 1⁄2 cup feta cheese, plus more for serving

  • Pico de Gallo or bottled salsa

  • Sliced avocado (optional)

Instructions:


Step one:

Pulse the black beans, lime juice, cumin, and a few shakes of hot sauce in a food processor until it has the consistency of refried beans, adding a bit of water to help if necessary.


Step Two:

Coat a small nonstick pan with nonstick cooking spray or a bit of butter or olive oil and heat over medium heat.


Step Three:

Crack two eggs into a bowl and beat with a bit of salt and pepper.

Add the eggs to the pan, then use a spatula to stir and then lift the cooked egg on the bottom to allow raw egg to slide under.


Step Four:

When the eggs have all set, spoon a quarter of the black bean mixture and 2 tablespoons of feta down the middle of the omelet.

Use the spatula to fold over a third of the egg to cover the mixture in the center, then carefully slide the omelet onto a plate, using the spatula flip it over at the last second to form one fully rolled omelet.


Last:

Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make four omelets. Garnish with pico de gallo, avocado slices if you like, and bit more crumbled feta.


Enjoy!
