A Better Breakfast Pita Pocket

A Better Breakfast Pita Pocket

Serves 2

This is a super tasty way to get vegetables into the morning meal. Try substituting broccoli or asparagus for the spinach, add sausage or veggie sausage, or use warm whole wheat tortillas or naan in place of the pitas.

Ingredients: 
  • Natural spray oil
  • 2 cups packed baby spinach (or 1 cup frozen, then thawed and squeezed)
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper, more to taste
  • 1/3 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 2 whole wheat pitas, warm

Method: 

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Spray with oil, add spinach and cook, tossing often, until just wilted, about 1 minute. Add eggs, salt and pepper and cook, tossing gently, until fluffy and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat, add mozzarella and toss again. Spoon egg mixture onto pitas, fold in half and serve right away or wrap in foil to eat on the go.
