  • 3-4 Whole Grain Tortillas
  • 1/2 A Sweet Red Pepper (diced)
  • 1 Tbsp Fresh Cilantro or Dill (finely chopped)
  • 2 Handfuls of Spinach (chopped)
  • Small Red Onion (finely diced)
  • 1/4 Cup Grated Cheese (optional)
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 Tsp Canola oil for the pan
  • Salt and Pepper (to taste)


Step 1

Crack eggs into a bowl and whisk (or use a fork) to mix well. Heat a skillet over medium heat on the stove, and add oil to the pan.

Step 2

Add chopped onions to the pan. Use a spatula to saute onions until they are translucent. Add red bell pepper and saute for about 5 minutes. Add spinach and cook until just slightly wilted.

Step 3

Pour eggs over all veggies in the pan and swirl around to coat the entire bottom of the pan. Cook by scrambling with a spatula or fold over for an omelet.

Step 4

Turn off heat and add cilantro, cheese, and salt and pepper to taste.

Step 5

Fill heated tortillas with mix and fold into a burrito. Serve immediately.
