Vegan MoFo IV Day 26: Omelette

A simple vegan omelette made with silken tofu. The recipe was loosely based on Fat Free Vegan's recipe but it's different enough to share. You can use any veggies or whatever as the filling, this one is just mushrooms and the last of Vegan Dad's Sausage (I really must stop calling it that!) fried up in some oil and seasoned with black pepper.

Vegan Omelette
serves 1

Ingredients
250 grams silken tofu (about one and a half cups)
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon black salt
1 Tablespoon soya milk
Quarter teaspoon turmeric
half a 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
Few twists of black pepper

Method
Place all ingredients in blender and blend for 1 minute. Heat a little oil in a frying pan and add the tofu mixture before the oil heats up. Spread the mixture out and cook on medium for 3-4 mins. Heat the grill (broiler) and place the frying pan under the grill and cook for 10 mins or so. You want the omelette to be nicely browned all over.
Remove from grill  
CAREFUL - HANDLE WILL BE HOT
Slide omelette onto plate, place filling on top and fold omelette over.
How easy is that!

Katie's making me laugh. ah ha ha! Jeni, i'm so jealous of your perfect omelette. dan and i tried to make susan's omelettes about a year ago and it ended up in failure. well, not complete failure - 'cause we made it into a tofu scramble, but i really wanted an omelette. i think we're gonna have to give them another whirl 'cause yours looks so damn delicious, my friend!

That looks amazing.

wow. just wow. this looks amazing! I am so into this. I have not had an omelet since going vegan over 12 years ago. Bad ass!

The omelette looks good! I have never succeeded in making a tofu omelette (it always turns into a scramble), so I mostly use chickpea flour these days. I'll have to try out your recipe next time. :)

Jessica said...

That looks great! I have been wanting to try an omelette but have had trouble finding a flour I like (chickpea, etc.). I think I'll try your version - no flour!

I love all the mushrooms, too. Yum!

Oh, vegan omelettes always look soooo good to me. Which is weird since I don't think I ever thought egg omelettes looked good.

I had about a 45 second delay before I "got it" and laughed at the vegan dad sausage comment.

That omlette looks so yummy I want to gobble it right up! It seems you're always talking about Vegan Dad's sausage, his wife might get jealous if you don't stop it! ;)
