Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

  2. Lightly grease an 8 x 8 glass baking dish or pan with cooking spray, set aside.

  5. While mushrooms are cooking, whisk together eggs with salt and pepper in a bowl then set aside.

  7. Alternately: Use an oven proof non-stick or cast iron skillet. Follow steps 1 & 3-5 then pour egg mixture over veggies in skillet and place in the oven to bake for 15-20 minutes until middle is set. 
  8. Slice up and serve.
