Chickpea Flour Omelette
Updated: Nov 10, 2020
This is a recipe I wrote years ago and it’s often a breakfast staple in my life! Filling, customizable, and delicious. You can watch me make it in my latest recipe video here!
Ingredients (serves 2)
1 cup chickpea flour
1 tablespoon flax seed
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 & 1/4 cups water
1/2 tablespoon oil
Examples/other spices I like to add: garlic/onion powder, pepper, dried dill, smoked paprika, dried chilli flakes, turmeric
Veggies you could add: mushrooms, jalapeño, garlic, broccoli, olives, tomato, spinach, fresh herbs
-Mix dry ingredients together including any optional spices you want to add.
-Add water, mix, and let sit for 10 minutes so the flax thickens the batter a bit.
-Prep whatever veggies you want (or you can do none at all!) and mix them into the batter.
-Heat oil in a large pan on just below medium heat.
-Pour all the batter into the pan and allow it to cook until the top looks mostly dry, around 7-10 minutes.
-Flip the omelette over, turn the heat to medium-low and cook for 5 more minutes. You could also add some vegan cheese at this point so it melts on the omelette!
-Cut in half, share with a loved one (or have it all to yourself), enjoy!
-If you split the batter to make 2 smaller omelettes, they will cook faster! About 6-8 minutes on the first side and 3-4 on the second side.
-Regardless of the times I provided, make sure it is fully cooked because uncooked chickpea flour tastes horrible!!!
