Directions

In a medium size bowl, combine the egg, egg whites, chives, water, and pepper; whisk just enough to mix lightly.
Melt 1/2 tablespoon of the margarine in a heavy 7 inch skillet over moderately high heat.
Add 1/4 each of the asparagus and mushrooms and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
Add 1/4 of the egg mixture (about 1/2 cup) and shake the skillet over the heat, stirring, for 30 seconds; then let the omelet cook, undisturbed, for 30 seconds more or until the edges and bottom are set.
With a spatula, either fold the omelet in half or roll it to the edge of the pan and invert it onto a heated plate.
