If you’re hungry and wondering what to have for breakfast or lunch, you should definitely try out this easy-to-make, delicious, vegan omelette recipe.
If possible, make the batter in advance because it works best if left to stand for a while, even overnight if possible. But it will also work if you cook it immediately when you don’t have time.
To make the batter you’ll need 2 cups of chickpea flour (also known as gram flour or Besan), 1/2 cup of chia seeds, 1 cup of cooked quinoa, 1 cup of cooked kale, 1 tsp turmeric, 1 tsp cumin, chilli powder to taste, 1/2 tsp salt.
Put the chickpea flour into a bowl and gradually add the water, stirring all the time so as to avoid it getting lumpy. When you have a liquid consistency, add all the other ingredients and mix well.
Taste the mix to make sure it has enough salt and leave it alone to stand.
It will thicken up while left standing, so whenyou come back to cook it, give it a stir and if necessary add some more water. It should be runny so that you can pour it into the frying pan.
Put a little olive oil in the frying pan and when hot, pour in the batter mix so that it completely covers the bottom of the frying pan. Leave to cook on a medium high heat for about 6 minutes or until it’s bubbling up.
Using a spatula, gently free the base of the omelette all the way around. Make sure not to be impatient and try to turn it before it’s properly cooked or it will break up!
Turn the omelette and leave to cook on the other side for another 6-8 minutes or until browned and crispy looking.
Serve with lambs leaves and enjoy!
