Use Cast Iron for Fat-Free Cooking

It takes practice but a cast iron skillet is a fabulous way to cook without oil. You can add a tiny bit of water or broth to the skillet. For example, frozen corn and onions on the skillet with a tiny bit of water – cover and simmer a few minutes Before all the water gets cooked out, crack a couple of eggs on top, piercing the yokes. After a brief heating from the stovetop, stick the skillet in the oven and “broil” to cook the top. After removing from the oven, use a firm metal spatula to lift it out. The trick is to not let the food stick to the skillet, which it shouldn’t if you don’t let it get dry. Add some fat-free salsa and voila, a delicious omelet!
