  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • ½ red onion, sliced thin
  • 1 cup chopped baby spinach leaves
  • ½ oz. feta cheese, crumbled

Directions

  • Whisk the eggs and ⅛ teaspoon of salt in a small bowl; set aside.
  • Heat an omelet pan over medium-low heat; add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, the sliced onions, and the remaining ⅛ teaspoon salt. Cook slowly, stirring occasionally for 3–5 minutes until the onions are soft and translucent. Add the remaining olive oil and the spinach leaves; cook for another 2–3 minutes or until the spinach is wilted. Remove from skillet.
