Equipment

  • Nonstick frying pan

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup chickpea flour
  • 1/3 cup cold water
  • Pinch of black salt (or substitute regular salt)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil (or substitute vegan butter)
  • Optional filling ideas: vegan shredded cheese, diced bell peppers, chopped onions, spinach, and/or sautéed mushrooms
  • Optional garnish: fresh chopped chives

Instructions

  • Place a large nonstick frying pan on the stove set to medium heat.
  • Add the olive oil to the pan and allow the pan to heat up for a few minutes.
  • Add the chickpea flour, water, and black salt to a mixing bowl and use a whisk to mix well.
  • Pour that mixture into the hot pan and cook for 2-3 minutes or until it looks solid.
  • Sprinkle on any optional fillings and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes or until the edges look golden and slightly crispy.
  • Use a spatula to fold the omelette in half, then lift the pan and gently tilt it to slide the omelette onto a plate.
  • Garnish with fresh chopped chives (optional) then serve.

Notes

  • Black salt adds an egg-like flavor to this chickpea flour omelette recipe but you can substitute regular salt if you prefer.
  • You can scale this recipe up to make as many omelettes as you want and store them in the fridge for up to three days. Reheat in the microwave, on the stove, or in the oven before serving.
