Chickpea Omelette

Ingredients – This will make 3-4 omlettes depending how big you make them.

• 1 cup chickpea flour (if your unsure the size of a cup, it is actually a unit of measurement rather than something you drink tea from.) Compared to the average tea cup I would say this is 2/3 of it.
• ½ tsp onion powder
• ½ tsp garlic powder ( I like to add a little more)
• ¼ tsp white pepper
• ¼ tsp black pepper
• ⅓ cup nutritional yeast
• ½ tsp baking soda
• Onion – For one omlette I use about a thind of an average sized onion, one maybe the size of a cricket ball, maybe a little smaller.
• Mushrooms – How many depends on how big they are. Ideally you want a good covering of mushrooms and onions once the mix is in the pan.

Slice both the mushrooms and onions quite thinly. You can also add Peppers, Spinach, Chili, whatever you like really.

 

Instructions:

1. Sieve the chickpea flour into a good sized bowl then add the onion powder, garlic powder, white pepper, black pepper, nutritional yeast, and baking soda. Add 1 cup water and stir until the batter is smooth. Stir as you add or it might get lumpy !!

2. Consider using a little hand blender rather than trying to mix with a fork. It will make the mix nice and bubbly and guarantee getting rid of the lumps.

3. Heat a little oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Pour the batter into the pan, as if making pancakes. Sprinkle the onions and mushrooms into the batter as it cooks.

4. After a min or two, when you see the edges of the underside beginning to brown, flip the omelet. This can be tricky and it can break or toppings can fall off. Once you done it a few times things will improve.. After a couple of minutes flip the omelet again leave for a minute then serve.

5. You can add more than mushrooms & onions. I always put fresh chilli on mine, but you can add peppers, spinach whatever you like. I don’t tend to add tomatoes because of the water content, rather I put them on top or on the side of the plate afterwards. I know there are tomatoes in the picture above but this was an early effort. TBH you can try it, see if it works for you.
