  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Coat baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cardamom or coriander, salt, and the 2 tablespoons sugar. Drizzle with oil and mix with fork until evenly distributed.
  • 3
    Reserve 1 tablespoon egg whites.
  • 4
    Stir yogurt, lemon peel, and remaining egg whites into flour mixture. Stir gently with fork until mixture holds together. Turn onto lightly floured surface. Knead about 8 strokes to mix dough thoroughly. Pat out dough to form 8-inch circle. With sharp knife, cut evenly into 8 wedges. Arrange wedges, about 1 inch apart, on prepared baking sheet. Brush with reserved egg whites. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar. Bake 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Expert Tips

  • Egg whites provide the protein from eggs but don't contain the cholesterol found in egg yolks. That's good news for your heart.
  • To keep the fat and calories down even further, serve with all-fruit strawberry preserves instead of butter or margarine.
  • Eat Great, Lose Weight from Prevention® (2000) p. 70.
