¡ö1 Tbsp canola oil or Extra virgin Olive Oil

¡ö2 large portabella mushroom heads, washed and chopped into 2-inch slices

¡ö1 medium white onion, diced

¡ö6 C baby spinach

¡ö1 garlic clove, peeled and finely minced

¡ö8 large eggs * brown/natural* I'm going to make 2versions -1 w/ only egg whites and the other like recipe.

¡ö1/2 C Plain 0% Chobani Greek Yogurt

¡ö1 tsp salt (none)

¡öFreshly ground pepper to taste

¡ö2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided

Heat an oven-safe, 10-inch skillet over medium high heat. Add 1 Tbsp oil. Add mushrooms and onions. Saut¨¦ until tender but not brown. Add spinach and garlic; cook until spinach reduces.

Beat eggs in a large bowl. Stir in the Chobani, salt and pepper. Add the spinach, mushroom and onion mixture; mix together well.

Heat oven to broil. Pour egg mixture into heated skillet. Roll skillet to evenly distribute liquid. Turn the heat down to low, and cover the pan. Cook 10 to 15 minutes, shaking the pan every once in a while, until the frittata is just about set.

Place skillet under broiler, about three inches from the heat, for one to two minutes, watching closely, until just beginning to color on the top. Do not allow the eggs to brown too much to avoid bitter tasting eggs.

Remove from the heat, allow to cool in skillet for about 5 minutes, then carefully slide out onto a platter. Serve warm or at room temperature.

    Sounds pretty good. Do you know the protein and carb counts as well? I go by that more than calories.
