  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the portobello mushroom and red onion in the olive oil until the mushroom has softened, 3 to 5 minutes.
  2. Whisk the egg whites and water together in a small bowl; pour over the mushroom and onion mixture. Season the egg whites with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the egg whites are no longer runny, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese over the mixture; top with the pesto. Fold the omelette in half and continue cooking until the cheese melts, 2 to 3 minutes.

This was very tasty, but next time I'm going to make it like a scramble instead of an omelette. I just enjoy that more. I'm sure as a scramble I would have given it 5 stars.

I loved this! I used havarti cheese instead and also lacked mushrooms, so I put in about 1/4 cup of chopped red bell peppers with the onions. I love that it's healthy and tasty and could be appr...

Great meal. I used whole eggs and feta cheese will make again. Great meal with a salad and crusty bread
