Squash Zoodler Omelet

“Quick and healthy breakfast!”


  • 1 yellow squash, ends trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup fresh spinach, or more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons shredded mozzarella cheese
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Process the yellow squash through a zoodler (vegetable peeler that forms noodle-shape pieces) until squash zoodles form.
  2. Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir squash zoodles, spinach, and cilantro until zoodles are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Spread mixture evenly into the bottom of the skillet.
  3. Whisk eggs and milk together in a bowl; pour over squash mixture. Cook until egg is firm, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over egg mixture and cook until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper.
