Enjoy a delicious, hearty breakfast with this vegan chickpea omelette recipe.
I used to love making my own veggie-packed omelettes for lunch. My favourite combination was always mushroom capsicum spinach and olives. I used to enjoy eating it but sure enough, it still made me nauseous no matter how much I enjoyed it. For me, eggs were very easy to give up when I went mostly plant-based but I did miss the convenience of a quick lunch like this that was full of vegetables and satiating. It’s taken me a little while to try a chickpea omelette version.
Part of the reason is that I found it very hard to find chickpea flour for a little bit. Now I seem to see it everywhere even in mainstream supermarkets. But the other reason is that I’m still learning to love chickpeas. I am enjoying them much more than I used to. But when I first started eating them, I really did not enjoy their aftertaste. I have tried a couple of chickpea omelettes at restaurants before and although they were quite nice, I could definitely taste a bit of an aftertaste. I’m so happy I finally decided to try my own version because it is the most legit version that I have tasted. It tastes so incredibly similar to the omelettes that I used to have.
It’s important to mix the liquid in a separate bowl first. I have tried to keep the recipe all in one bowl, but I find that doing that leads to a very clumpy omelette. A clumpy mixture will still work. Personally, we prefer it for lunch. I will admit that it is not as quick as a regular omelette but the frying process is very similar and all in all, it’s still a fairly quick and easy meal. Enjoy![amd-zlrecipe-recipe:307]
