When I went vegan I had completely accepted that I would never eat an omelette or something eggy again. Then I discovered chickpea flour. They also call it gram flour. It has a yellow colour and mixed with plantbased milk or water, you make the omelette batter. And yes that is super jummy! Let me show you how to make it:
- 1 cup chickpea flour
- 1 tsp garam masala (indian spice mix)
- pinch of salt (or black salt) and pepper
- 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/4 tsp cumin
- 4 tbps nooch (nutritional yeast)
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup of water or plantbased milk
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl and whisk until all the lumps are gone. Cover and set aside in the fridge for 15 minutes. You can leave the omelette natural as it is or you can add some veggies. I used:
- Spring onion
- Red bell pepper
But you can feel free whatever you like of course! Spinach and mushrooms are also a really good pair.
In the mean time.. Preheat your oven to 200 C.
After fifteen minutes take the batter out fhe fridge and heat up a non-stick frying pan. Put a tablespoon of olive oil in the pan and poor the batter in. Put your heat on medium to low and fry for three minutes until big bubbles appear. If you want to add veggies then now it is the best time to add those into te mix. Then transfer the pan into the oven for 5-6 minutes. Serve the omelette with a slice of lemon and siracha mayo for that yolky effect.
This is so delicious! Enjoy the magic!
