On Nutrisystem, Count As: 1 PowerFuel, 1 SmartCarb, 1 Vegetable

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • ½ red onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 4 cups of baby spinach, chopped
  • 1½ cups egg whites
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp. sundried tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 6 Tbsp. low-fat mozzarella cheese

Directions:

  1. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Mist with cooking spray.
  2. Sauté garlic, red onion and bell pepper for five to seven minutes until soft. Add spinach and continue sautéing until wilted. Remove vegetables from the skillet and place in a colander to allow any excess liquid to drain.
  3. Return the nonstick skillet to the stove and reduce heat to low. Mist with cooking spray. Add egg whites, salt, pepper and crushed red pepper, and cook over low heat until egg whites are cooked and very little liquid remains. Then, add in sautéed vegetables and sundried tomatoes to cook for an additional one to two minutes. Set aside mixture to cool for at least 10 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle 1 Tbsp. of mozzarella cheese in the center of each tortilla. Divide the egg and vegetable mixture amongst tortillas, roll like a burrito and wrap in aluminum foil.
  5. Place burritos in a freezer safe plastic bag and freeze until ready to serve.
  6. To reheat: Microwave Option—Remove burrito from aluminum foil, wrap in a paper towel and place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on high for two to three minutes, turning over halfway through. Oven Option—Preheat oven to 400° F. Bake burrito wrapped in foil for 20 to 25 minutes.
