  • In a large nonstick skillet heat 2 teaspoons of the oil over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, asparagus, sweet pepper, green onions, and garlic. Cook for 5 to 8 minutes or until mushrooms are beginning to brown and asparagus is just tender, stirring frequently. Remove vegetables from skillet; cover and keep warm.

  • For omelet, heat an 8-inch nonstick skillet with flared sides over medium-high heat until skillet is hot. Add 1 teaspoon of the oil, swirling to coat bottom of skillet. Add one-fourth of the egg mixture (about 1/2 cup); reduce heat to medium. Immediately begin stirring egg mixture gently but continuously with a wooden spoon or heat-proof rubber spatula until mixture resembles small pieces of cooked egg surrounded by liquid egg. Stop stirring. Cook for 30 to 60 seconds more or until egg mixture is set.

  • Spoon one-fourth of the vegetables onto half of the omelet. Sprinkle with one-fourth of the cheese. Using the spoon or spatula, lift and fold the unfilled half of the omelet over filling. Gently slide omelet out of skillet onto a warm plate. Cover with foil; keep warm. Repeat to make three more omelets, using the remaining oil, egg mixture, vegetables, and cheese.
