2 tsp canola oil
1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped

Add spinach and stir until moisture has evaporated, about 3 minutes longer. Sprinkle cheese evenly in prepared pie plate. Top with spinach mixture. In medium bowl, whisk together egg white, egg, cottage cheese, red pepper, salt and nutmeg. Pour egg mixture evenly over spinach. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until set in the center.
