1.Preheat oven to 220°C.
2.Place tomatoes on oven tray. Roast about 10 minutes or until tomatoes are just softened.
3.Rinse spinach briefly under cold water; shake until almost dry. Cook spinach, in batches, in a non-stick frying pan, over medium heat, until just starting to wilt. Place in medium bowl; cool.
4.Reheat same pan; cook onion and the water, uncovered, over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft. Combine onion with the spinach in bowl. Wipe pan clean.
5.Meanwhile, using a fork, beat 2 egg whites with 1 tablespoon milk in small bowl until combined. Lightly spray same heated pan. Pour egg-white mixture into pan; cook, over low heat, until just browned underneath. Place pan under hot grill; cook until top just sets.
6.Sprinkle half the spinach mixture over one half of the omelette; grill until mixture is hot and top is browned lightly. Fold omelette in half to enclose filling. Cover to keep warm.
7.Repeat to make another omelette; serve omelettes with tomatoes.

The frying pan goes under the grill in this recipe, so you need a frying pan with an ovenproof handle, or cover the handle with a few layers of foil to protect it from the heat of the grill. If you don’t have a lid for the frying pan, cover it with foil. Cook the recipe just before serving.
