Easy Vegan Omelet

 

 

 

This 7-ingredient base starts with silken tofu – creamy, blend-able and full of protein. Then, flavour is added from hommus, nutritional yeast, sauteed garlic and paprika. Sautee veggies add extra fiber, nutrition and texture.

 

Even though it doesn’t look like eggs before cooking, the finished result is nearly identical to the real thing!

 

An easy vegan omelet for first timers. 7 ingredients, loads of veggies, simple methods. Hearty, savoury, fluffy and delicious.

 

 

 

Ingredients

 

Omelet:

  • 5 ounces (~3/4 cup) Kingland Silken Tofu, drained and gently patted dry

  • 2 Tbsp hummus

  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast

  • Salt and black pepper

  • 1/4 tsp paprika

  • 1 tsp cornstarch 


Filling:

  • 1 heaping cup veggies of choice (I like onion, tomato, mushroom, spinach)


Toppings:

  • Fresh herbs

  • Salsa

  • Vegan Parmesan Cheese

 

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees

  2. Prep veggies, drain and dry tofu, and mince garlic. Set aside.

  3. Heat a small-to-medium, oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add olive oil and minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes or until just lightly golden brown.

  4. Transfer garlic to food processor, along with remaining omelet ingredients (tofu – cornstarch) and mix to combine, scraping down sides as needed. Add just a touch of water to thin – 1-2 Tbsp at most. Set aside.

  5. To the still warm skillet over medium heat, add a bit more olive oil and the veggies. Season with salt and pepper and sauté to desired doneness. I like to start with onions and tomatoes, then add mushrooms, and end with spinach so each has proper time to cook. Set aside.

  6. Remove skillet from heat and make sure it’s coated with enough oil so the omelet doesn’t stick. Add back 1/4 of the veggies and spoon on the omelet batter, spreading it gently with a spoon or rubber spatula, being careful not to tear or cause gaps. The thinner and more evenly you can spread it the better. So you may not end up using it all.

  7. Cook over medium heat on the stove top for 5 minutes until the edges start to dry. Then place in 200 degree oven and bake until dry and deep golden brown – 10-15 minutes. The longer it bakes the less soft/wet it will be, so if you prefer a more “well done” omelet, cook closer to 15 or more.

  8. Using an oven mitt, in the last few minutes of cooking carefully add remaining veggies back on top of the omelet and cook another 1-2 minutes to warm through.

  9. Carefully remove from oven with oven mitt and fold over gently with a spatula. If it doesn’t want to fold, you can serve it as a frittata or scramble!

  10. Serve with desired toppings.
