TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

  • 1. In a large skillet coated with cooking spray, saute onion and green pepper. Add potatoes; cook and stir over medium heat for 5 minutes or until heated through.
  • 2. In a bowl, beat egg substitute, water and pepper; pour over vegetables. As eggs set, lift edges, letting uncooked portion flow underneath.
