Egg pockets

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Carrots; julienned (or shredded)
1 cup Mushrooms; diced
1 small Onion; thinly sliced
2 teaspoons Margarine
1½ cup Fat free egg substitute
½ teaspoon Dried basil
¼ teaspoon Dried thyme
¼ teaspoon Ground black pepper
¼ cup Reduced-fat Cheddar cheese; shredded
4 \N Whole-wheat pita breads; halved
1 cup Alfalfa sprouts or finely shredded spinach

In a 4-cup glass measure, combine the carrots, mushrooms and onions. Cover with vented plastic wrap and microwave on high for 4 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.

Coat a large no-stick frying pan with no-stick spray. Place over medium heat for 3 minutes. Add the margarine and vegetables. Saute for 2 minutes to slightly brown and to evaporate excess liquid from the mushrooms. Add the eggs, basil, thyme and pepper.

Allow the eggs to begin to firm around the edges, then push the set portion to the center. Continue until the eggs are scrambled but not dry. Sprinkle with the Cheddar.

Spoon the eggs into the pita pockets. Top with the sprouts or spinach.
