Eggless Omelette

Fluffy, filling AND high in protein - the only thing this pancake-like omelette is missing is the bad cholesterol of eggs! Be sure to experiment with your favourite fillings - a meltable vegan cheese is highly recommended! And don't be afraid to fry them for longer than you might think to ensure the omelette sets properly in the middle - I like to leave mine to brown nicely on the outside before removing from the pan.

Equipment

Ingredients
  

  • 700 gram Silken Tofu
  • 6 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • 2 Tbsp Corn Starch
  • 8 Tbsp Brown Rice Flour
  • 4 Tbsp Non-Dairy Milk
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric
  • 1 tsp Kala Namak (Indian Black Salt)
  • Oil for frying

Instructions
 

  • Add the all ingredients (excluding oil) to a blender and blend until smooth - scraping down the sides as necessary. Set aside.
  • If you are using sautéed vegetables as a filling, cook now and set aside.
  • To make the omelette, add some oil to a medium-hot non-stick pan. When the pan is hot, pour some batter into the centre of the pan and try to make a circle. You want the omelette to be about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.
  • Cover the pan and cook for several minutes until the top looks "set" and firm.
  • Add any fillings to one half of the omelette, then fold the other side over to cover the fillings. Cover the pan and cook for another couple of minutes. You'll know that the omelette is ready when the underside has turned a nice golden brown.
  • Carefully transfer the omelette to a plate with a spatula and add any preferred condiments or toppings. Repeat until all the batter is used.
