 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      tsp           olive oil
    6                    egg whites -- whipped
    1      tbsp          water
    1      tsp           salt
      1/2  tsp           black pepper
 
 Heat oil over high heat in a skillet with a rounded bottom and sloping
 sides. In a mixing bowl, whip egg whites, water, salt, and black pepper
 together, using a fork.  Pour egg mixture into skillet. Cook over
 moderately high heat until the bottom is set. Using a heatproof spatula,
 move the cooked mixture to the center and allow the uncooked mixture to
 flow into the bottom of the pan. When cooked, the omelet should be barely
 brown on the bottom, soft and moist in the center. Spoon the filling down
 the center of the omelet (*see note). Using a spatula and starting from the
 handle side, fold one third of the omelet over the center. With a heated
 serving plate in one hand, grasp the skillet in the other, palm up and tilt
 so the omelet rolls over onto the plate.
