Tofu Omelette | Vegan Omelette

Breakfast is made very simple at my home. We have 2 slices of bread along with fresh juice. So there is never a big preparation for it. Most of the time the south indian tiffins end up becoming our dinner.
I came across this vegan omelette recipe & decided making it as a lunch side. I'm not vegan, I love eggs & love anything made with them. I can never imagine replacing egg omelette with anything. But this recipe just won my heart & undoubtedly with no hesitation I loved it. I did a lot of googling for a perfect recipe & in process of making it made a lot of blunders too. The taste was similar to omelette & was just yum. All I want to say is that give it a try you will love it.

Tofu Omelette
Ingredients
½ Pack silken tofu
3 Tbs chickpea flour / Besan
2 Tbs coconut milk
1 Tbs cornstarch
½ Tsp minced garlic
2 Tsp red chili
1 Tbs soya sauce 
2 Tsp sesame oil
Pinch of turmeric
Salt
Filling 
Few sundried tomatoes
½ Cup grilled onions
1 Tbs basil leaves

Tofu Omelette

In a bowl mix all the ingredients to a smooth batter leaving few chunks of tofu. Leave the filling behind which we will use it later.
Heat a non-stick pan with oil. First pour the batter on the skillet & in circular motion spread the batter. Let it cook in medium heat. You can see some small hole in between. Once the edges starts browning carefully lift the omelet & reverse it.

Check for the edges to be brown. Now spread the filling one by one on the omelet & close it half way. Cook it in low heat for 2mins to 3mins & switch off heat. Serve it warm.

Below is the tofu scramble. Buy adding another ½ cup of tofu to the above recipe you can get a scramble. I avoided tomatoes to the dish & went a head with onions & basil for scramble.

Enjoy this healthy dish as a breakfast or along with lunch as a side dish.

  10. I really would love to make a "chickpea"-based omelette, or a wrap! I tried Amy's gluten-free vegan wraps and they are sooooo tasty and now after looking at this lovely dish, I want to make some now!
