Chickpea Omelette

Hello everyone! 

I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had any time to blog :(.  

Its been a wonderful week filled with birthdays, live music and catching up with good friends.  Today is my 8 year anniversary with my man, I’m planning a romantic dinner for us with all his favorites.  We’ve had our ups and downs, but no matter what we made it through stronger than ever, so I think he deserves a little treat having to deal with my crazy ass all these years :).

On to the recipe, I love making recipes that doesn’t require soy, but still has a lot of protein in it.  This is a great and easy breakfast recipe that will give you a nice protein kick. These don’t taste like egg at all, but its got a nice nutty taste, this is delicious with baby spinach, but feel free to use any filling your heart desires

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup Chickpea flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper – optional
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 tbsp fresh chives, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2/3 cup water or non dairy milk
  • 1 cup baby spinach, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Directions

In a large bowl mix the chickpea flour, baking powder, cayenne pepper, garlic powder and turmeric together.  

Slowly add in the water and mix until just combined.  

Fold in the chives and parsley.

In a small pan on medium heat (make sure the pan is hot before you pour in the batter), pour in the half of the batter and cook until bubbles start to form on the surface.  Add in half the spinach in the omelette (or any other filling).  

Fold omelette in half and reduce the heat, cook for another 1 – 2 minutes.  Make sure not to overcook it, you want the middle to be slightly soft.  Remove from pan and serve.  This is great with some ketchup or as is.
