Scrambled Egg Whites with Spinach and Orange

Posted on June 18, 2010. Filed under: Athletic, Healthy Recipes | Tags: , , , , , |

With the added flavor of tomato, cayenne and orange, you won’t miss the yolks.

Serves 2, Calories: 85 (not including the whole orange)




  • 6 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons tomato sauce
  • Nonfat cooking spray
  • 4 ounces fresh spinach, well washed and stems trimmed
  • Dash of cayenne pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • Grated rind of one orange



  • Beat the egg whites until frothy, and then blend in the tomato sauce.
  • Heat a skillet over a medium flame and spray with cooking spray.
  • Sauté the spinach until it is wilted and there is no liquid in the pan.
  • Pour in the egg whites, season with cayenne pepper and salt, and cook slowly, stirring until thickened.
  • Sprinkle with grated orange rind and serve immediately.


This dish really surprised me. I didn’t have very high expectations for it but it turned out pretty alright. I think if I were to make this again I would add some cilantro to it to add more flavor but the most shocking thing about this dish was that the orange rind, the ingredient I expected the least from really salvaged it. If you’re looking for a low fat breakfast, definitely try this out but if not, keep the yolk!
