This oil-free recipe is simple, hearty, and delicious. In under an hour, you can whip up a gourmet meal, good at any time of the day, especially if you use warmed leftover vegetables!

Ingredients

 3 cups steamed or sautéed vegetables
 1 cup Chickpea Flour (Besan)
 ¼ cup nutritional yeast
 1 teaspoon baking powder
 ½ teaspoon garlic powder
 ½ teaspoon onion powder
 1 teaspoon dried Italian Seasoning (optional)
 ½ teaspoon salt
 1 ½ cups unflavored, unsweetened plant-based milk of your choice
 Salsa, Vegan Cheese Sauce, pesto, or marinara sauce for garnish (optional)

Instructions

1

Steam or sauté and season vegetables of your choice to yield 3 cups. Keep warm in oven or on burner as you make the omelets.

2

If using a sauce, warm the sauce on the stove top or in the microwave. Keep warm until serving.

3

In a large bowl, stir together all dry ingredients. Add the plant-based milk and whisk until smooth.

4

Warm a non-stick pancake griddle or skillet on medium-high heat. When hot, using a small ladle, pour batter onto the hot surface, smoothing the batter out using a circular motion until you have a circle about 6 inches in diameter. Cook for 5 minutes on first side. Flip and cook the second side for 1-2 minutes.

5

Remove the omelet to a plate, cover one half with vegetables and flip over to create the omelet. Top with salsa or warm sauce and serve immediately.

6

If making multiple omelets for a meal, you can transfer them to a plate or pan to keep warm in the oven until you have made all of the omelets and are ready to serve. Serve with the sauce of your choice.

Note:
Another way to make this omelet is to add diced cooked vegetables to the batter before cooking the omelets. Use about ¼ cup of vegetables per omelet.

7

Suggested vegetable combinations:

• Onions, asparagus, mushrooms, and sundried tomatoes seasoned with garlic and Italian seasoning
• Onions, mushrooms, sweet red peppers, and spinach seasoned with fresh basil
• Onions, mushrooms and broccoli seasoned with tarragon.

Chickpea flour or besan can be purchased in many chain grocery stores and all Indian grocery stores.
