Vegan Chickpea Omelette

Chickpeas are a wonderful legume, a source of essential plant protein. Considered very important in vegan or vegetarian diets. But the truth is, the nutritional value of chickpeas can benefit everybody, regardless of their food preferences in a tremendous way. I must admit, I searched for an alternative to eggs for a long time until chickpea flour came knocking on my door – it’s was perfect timing. Welcome, please come inside!

  • diet no eggs, dairy, meat, gluten (vegan)

WHAT YOU NEED

  • ¾ glass chickpea flour (you can buy it in a healthy food shop of simply blend the chickpeas)
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  2. Warm up the oven to 190°C
  3. Wash and cut the pepper together with spring onion. Warm up the pan, melt the oil and fry them a little. Then add into the bowl and mix again with the chickpea mixture. Put it all back on the frying pan and fry for 1 minute to help the mixture set a little
  4. Put the pan into the oven and bake for about 10 minutes until the omelet sets
  5. You don’t have to use the oven – not everyone has one – but it’s easier as you won’t have to flip it upside down. The alternative is to use the pan on the hob.
