Savory Veggie & Herb Egg White Taquitos. And Sunday Brunch or Monday lunch, straight from ingredients already in our fridge and pantry.
Typically when I think of ‘Wraps’ I think of a sandwich alternative that consists of meats, cheeses or veggies that are rolled up into a convenient handheld package. Taquitos are that kind of wonderful.
Working with ingredients you already have on hand makes them even tastier. In our case we always have onion and it generally is the start of most of our savory dishes. Fresh herbs when available are a great way to elevate the flavor, especially when working with veggies. We happened to have a few cooked new potatoes, fresh mushrooms, and butternut squash in the fridge as well.
Once sautéed until tender, I poured in just enough egg whites to cover the bottom of the pan. Sprinkled the mixture with crumbled goat cheese, sliced scallions, salt, pepper and Mrs. Dash garlic & herb seasoning. Once the egg whites were set, I filled three flour tortillas with the mixture, rolled them tightly and secured them with a tooth pick.
I lightly coated the taquitos with olive oil spray then baked them at 425 degrees for 10 minutes. Allow them to cool slightly before serving, then off you go….breakfast (or lunch) in hand. Not to mention that each Savory Veggie & Herb Egg White Taquitos clocks in at under 300 calories. That’s something we can take with us into the New Year!!
