Everything you eat, I can eat vegan. Yes, even an omelette! You really do not have to miss out on anything. Except of a bunch of cholesterol. Haha! I heard that you can make omelettes with chickpea flower and tofu and I often eat the chickpea omelette at Paradise Planetbased in London (so good!). So I did some experimenting in the kitchen and eventually created this recipe. It’s so delicious and it definitely hits the spot. It’s so much better than the regular egg omelettes as well. I like to eat mine with a simple salad and avocado. You can also add some (sriracha) mayo if you like. The recipe is for 2 people, so if you just want to just make one, make sure you only use half of all the ingredients. Or you can keep half the omelette batter in the fridge, to make it the next day. Yum!
1/2 cup PB milk
150 gr silken tofu
1/2 cup chickpea flour
2-3 tbs nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp garlic granules
1/4 tsp onion granules
1/2 tsp salt
pepper (to taste)
oil for frying
1 tomato (chopped)
4 mushrooms (chopped)
2 babycorns (chopped)
1 spring onion (chopped)
2 handfuls of spinach
1 handful vegan cheese (grated, optional)
oil for frying
-Mix all the ingredients for the omelette in a kitchen machine until it’s a slightly runny paste.
-Heat the pan, with the oil of your choice, on a medium fire.
-When the pan is hot, pour half of the mixture in the pan and spread it out.
-Divide the cheese on top go the omelette and put the lid on the pan.
-Turn the fire down to a low and let it cook until it dried up and the bottom is slightly brown (3-5 min). Do the same thing with the other half of the mixture.
-In the meantime: Put some oil in a pan and fry all the ingredients for the filling (except the spinach) in a pan, for about 3 min.
-Add the spinach and mix it up until it shrunk.
-Carefully take the omelettes out of the pan and put it on a plate.
-Put the filling on top and fold the omelettes in half.
