Egg Free Veggie Omelette
- 8 ounces organic firm or extra-firm tofu
- 3/4 -1 cup soymilk
- 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon granulated onion
- 1/2-3/4 teaspoon turmeric
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons light miso
- 4 teaspoons Vegan Butter I prefer EarthBalance
- 1 1/3 cup baby spinach
- 3 cups Danielle's Sautéed Summer Veggies
- 4 tablespoon Danielle's Versitle Cream Cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon kala namak black salt
- Sauté whatever ingredients you are planning to fill the omelette with and cook them without a lid to get them as dry as possible. Otherwise, you will have soggy omelettes. Bring your vegan cheese to room temperature before making your omelette to assure it will melt. This is a quick process.
- Blend together all batter ingredients until smooth and about the consistency of pancake batter.
- Heat a medium-sized non-stick ceramic sauté pan on medium-high until medium-hot. Pour half the batter into the middle of the pan and spread it out with the back of a non-stick spoon. Try not to pull the batter off the bottom of the pan creating holes. If that happens, repair the holes with a little more of the batter. Reduce the heat to medium or medium-low.
- Cook, uncovered, until the batter begins to dry out. When it is nearly dry and is obviously firming up, add your ingredients to half of the omelette beginning in the middle and working towards the edge until half of the omelette is covered. Sprinkle or spoon your vegan cheese, if using, atop the ingredients. Cover and allow the cheese to melt.
- The omelette will become fairly crisp around the edges. Work a long, thin spatula (similar to a fish spatula) underneath the uncovered part of the omelette and fold it over the side with the filling. Then, using your spatula, slide the omelette onto your plate. (It helps to have two people to perform this task.)
- Serve hot.
