This omelette is by far one of the tastiest thing I made recently! I know I say this all the time but trust me, you got to make this! The chickpea flour combined with silken tofu create the fluffiest on the texture so close to a regular egg omelette! The filling options are obviously endless but I personally love creamy avocado, panfried mushrooms, kale and creamy cashew cheese. It’s a great breakfast/brunch dish or for whenever you want something super quick and delicious!
For the omelette
1/2 block of silken tofu (about 150gr) Please don’t sub it with the regular firm tofu as it won’t work!
1/2 cup of chickpea flour (also called Gram flour)
1/2 cup of water
3 tbsp of nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of turmeric powder (for color)
1 tsp of baking powder
A dash of oil for cooking
For the filling:
A squeeze of lime juice
Salt and pepper to season
For the mushrooms & Kale:
About 150gr of chestnut mushrooms sliced
A generous handful of finely chopped kale
1 garlic clove crushed
A dash of soy sauce
Some cashew cream cheese or any other vegan cheese of your choice
Place all the ingredients for the omelette Into a blender and blend util smooth and creamy. Let the batter sit in the blender for 5 minutes, this will help to thicken it up. Heat up a dash of oil into a large non stick pan. Once hot pour in the batter and try to create a round shape. Cover the pan with a lid and cook the omelette for about 5 minutes on the first side. Flip on the other side and cook for another 2-3 minutes. In the meantime in separate pan add a touch of oil and the crushed garlic. Cook the garlic on a low heat for only a couple of minutes. Add in the sliced mushrooms and chopped kale. Add the soy sauce and cook for 5-8 minutes on a medium heat until all the water from the mushrooms has evaporated.
Serve the omelette in a large plate. In a small bowl mash the avocado with a fork and add the lemon juice, salt and pepper. Spread the quacamole onto the omelette, add the mushrooms and kale and top it with some cashew cream cheese. Enjoy while still warm!
