Chickpea Flour 'Omelette'
*Recipe adapted from Tasty Co
¾ cup chickpea flour (90 g)
1 ½ tablespoons nutritional yeast
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon turmeric
¼ teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon pepper
⅛ teaspoon black salt, kala namak, optional
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
¾ cup unsweetened almond milk(180 mL)
In a medium bowl, combine the chickpea flour, nutritional yeast, baking soda, garlic powder, turmeric, salt, black salt, apple cider vinegar, and almond milk, and whisk together until mostly smooth.
In a medium nonstick saucepan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium heat. Once the oil begins to shimmer, add a ½ cup (120 ml) of the omelette batter to the pan. Let cook for 5-7 minutes, or until several bubbles have formed on the surface. Spoon half of the vegetable filling onto one side of the omelette.
Using a spatula, fold the omelette in half. Turn off the heat and cover the pan with a lid. Let the omelette steam for 5 minutes, until completely cooked through. Repeat with the remaining omelette batter and filling. Serve the omelettes with greens of choice, vegan cheese and tomato chutney
