Vegan Omelet


Recipe

This took about one hour to make. It’s enough for 4 people, and is easy to make.

Ingredients

  • 250g mushrooms (paris mushroom if possible)
  • 50g chickpea flour
  • 200g silken tofu
  • 2 tablespoons of cornstarch
  • 10cl water
  • A half teaspoon of turmeric
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Vegetal oil (for cooking)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • The herbs you like (we used chive)

Steps

  • Clean the mushrooms, and make them sweat in an oiled pan for 5 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, mix the tofu, water, oil, flour, cornstarch, turmeric and salt until it’s smooth.
  • Pour the mixture into a hot pan.
  • Let it cook until the bottom is golden brown, and the top isn’t liquid anymore.
  • Add the mushrooms and fold the omelet in half.
  • Add the herbs.

Results

We didn’t manage to cut the omelet into parts without destroying its structure, and it was still a little bit too liquid on top. But it was still good.

Overall, I’d give it a 4/5.
