Vegan Chickpea Omelette

Vegan recipes don’t have to be boring. There’s always ways to push the envelope and discover traditionally non-vegan dishes that can be enjoyed with a little bit of substitution. Today we’ll highlight a breakfast favorite, the omelette. Instead of egg, this omelette utilizes chickpea to get a similar consistency and delicious taste. This is a simple one-serving recipe that makes a single omelette, so adjust as necessary. Give it a try!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup chickpea flour
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (black salt for a more egg like flavor)
  • 1/4 cup vegetables of choice
  • 1 tablespoon oil (for frying)

Instructions

  1. Put chickpea flour, nutritional yeast, and salt in a mixing bowl and give it all a stir.
  2. Add half of the water and stir well until it forms a smooth paste. Add the remaining water and stir again until smooth and set aside while you prepare the add-ins.
  3. Dice up whatever veggies you want to add to your omelette. (about ¼ cup of veggies per omelette).
  4. Add oil to a well-seasoned iron skillet or a non-stick frying pan and saute the veggies on medium-low for about 3-5 minutes until they become tender.
  5. Remove the veggies and add them to the batter and give the batter another stir.
  6. Turn up the heat to medium and pour the batter in the skillet like you would a large pancake and cook for about 5 minutes until the top of the omelette no longer looks wet. (You can put a lid on the frying pan for a minute or two to help it cook evenly.)
  7. Carefully loosen up the omelette with a spatula and flip the omelette to the other side and cook for 3-5 more minutes until it is no longer soft in the middle.  (Make sure there is no wet batter left in the center).
  8. Top with cheese and fold over so that the cheese is in the middle. (You can also add a handful of baby spinach to the middle of the omelette and it will wilt with the melting cheese.)
