  • Wash the spinach and without drying, place in pot on stovetop over medium high heat for 3 minutes to wilt the leaves.
  • Once the leaves have wilted, remove the spinach from heat and allow them to cool slightly. Drain the excess water from the spinach, pressing and squeezing to release the moisture.
  • Add red pepper flakes, half of the garlic powder, and a pinch of salt to the spinach and mix thoroughly.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine goat cheese, the remaining garlic powder, thyme, and a pinch of salt.
  • Heat an 8-inch non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk the eggs together. Add a pinch of salt and pepper to the egg mixture.
  • Pour the beaten eggs into the hot non-stick skillet and shake pan back and forth over the burner.
  • Continue swirling and moving pan back and forth until egg on top begins to solidify and is no longer runny.
  • Place the spinach mixture on the egg in a line down the middle.
  • Crumble the goat cheese mixture over the spinach.
  • Fold one edge of the omelet over the spinach and goat cheese, then the opposite edge over that.
