6 egg whites

2 whole eggs

1-1/2 cups crumbled goat cheese, divided (I use soy feta and just a sprinkle of grated on the top, likely 1/4 cup)

1/2 cup spelt or quinoa flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp sea salt, divided

2 cups low-fat cottage cheese

Olive oil spray

4 medium zucchini, sliced into thin half moons (this is generous, likely just two)

1 small onion, peeled and sliced

2 cloves garlic, minced

3 cups button mushrooms, sliced (I use four large ones)

2 cups spinach

1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped (or your favourite spice mix)

1/2 tsp black pepper

Preheat over to 400.  In a large bowl whisk together egg whites and whole eggs.

Add 1 cup cheese, milk, flour, baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt and cottage cheese.  Mix until well combined.

Spray skillet with oil and saute veggies until soft, about 8 minutes.

Add veggies to bowl.  Mix in basil, black pepper and remaining 1/4 tsp salt.
