Chickpea Flour In The Vegan Omelette

First, let’s talk about chickpea flour. Chickpea flour, also known as gram flour or besan, comes from ground chickpeas and is a staple in many vegan and gluten-free kitchens. It’s high in protein and has a nutty, slightly earthy flavor. It’s also incredibly versatile and can be used to make everything from pancakes to pasta.

The result is a delicious and fluffy omelette that has all the texture and flavor of a traditional omelette, but without the eggs.

Servings: 4 people

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chickpea flour (also known as gram flour or garbanzo flour)
  • 1 cup plain plant milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2-3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • dash turmeric optional
  • salt & pepper to taste (use black salt if you have it)
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar

Vegetable Filling

  • 12 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 large handful baby spinach
  • 4 large white mushrooms, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 shallot finely diced (2 green onions work as a substitute)

Instructions

  • In a medium mixing bowl, add all chickpea omelette ingredients together and whisk well to combine.
  • Keep whisking until there are no lumps and set aside.
  • In a large pan on medium heat, add 1 tbsp of olive oil, garlic, onion, and vegetables of your choice. Cook for 2-4 minutes or until mushrooms have cooked and the spinach is tender. Remove the filling from the pan and set aside.
  • In the same pan, use olive oil or vegan butter to grease the pan before pouring the batter.
  • Pour the batter into the pan into a thin circular shape. Cook for about 2 minutes on medium heat. The edges should be slightly browned, and bubbles should be forming throughout the omelette. (Similar to when a pancake is ready to be flipped). Once this has happened, carefully flip the omelette, and cook the other side for 1-2 minutes.
  • Once the omelette is cooked all the way through, serve with the vegetable filling, and fold in half.
  • Top with vegan cheese, and fresh herbs (optional.) Serve and enjoy!

Notes

Batter Consistency:
The chickpea omelette batter should be a consistency that’s similar to pancake batter. It should drip from the spoon while not pouring too easily. If you batter is too thick, add a little more plant milk. If your vegan omelette batter is too thin, add a little more chickpea flour and whisk thoroughly. 
Vegetable Filling:
The vegetable filling can be totally customized to your preferences. If there are other veggies you love, or if you hate mushrooms simply swap for another veggie. I often make omelettes to clean up my old vegetables in the fridge, so it’s different every time! 
Spices:
Feel free to customize spices in this recipe as well. I enjoy adding a dash of paprika, turmeric, garlic powder, and herbs de provence! 
Black Salt:
Black salt will add a slightly “eggy” flavour to this dish. If you don’t have it, no problem. It still tastes amazing with regular salt. 
Size of Omelette:
This recipe makes 4 medium sized omelettes. If you are serving with toast, or other sides this is the perfect amount. If you are extra hungry, or serving without sides, you may want two! 

Conclusion: Vegan Omelette

In conclusion, the vegan omelette with chickpea flour is a delicious and versatile dish that’s perfect for vegans and those who are gluten-intolerant. Made with chickpea flour, it’s a great source of protein and can be customized to suit your taste. It’s a great alternative to traditional omelettes and it’s a great way to experiment with different flavors and ingredients. It’s egg-ceptional, give it a try and let your taste buds be the judge!
