Happy first Monday of 2021! Today I am giving you the recipe for this Pesto Veggie Vegan Omelette! Vegan “eggs” are a real tricky thing for a lot of people. Unlike real eggs that can be eaten as is, or used for baking etc, vegan “eggs” aren’t the same. You can use applesauce to replace eggs in baking, but you obviously can’t make a vegan omelette out of applesauce. Get my drift? Substituting eggs in baking recipes is something I’ve gotten pretty good at! However, creating a vegan egg substitute for breakfast foods like omelettes is a whole different story.
I want to quickly link to my favourite omelette recipe here, which is like a copycat of the brand JustEgg. But I also really love omelettes made with chickpea flour! They’re quicker and easier to make, and quite satisfying! This recipe using chickpea flour, veggies, some spices, and a homemade basil drizzle (you might recognize it from this recipe) to make this omelette flavourful and filling.
Recipe for success…
I used a tiny little baby skillet for this recipe. It was so cute. But it wasn’t the most ideal pan for this recipe because my “egg” mixture stuck to it. I ate it straight out of the pan, which was fine, but I suggest using a nonstick pan for this!
