O-Mazing Omni Style Omelette (VEGAN!)

Last night my boyfriend and I stayed at my Aunts, and this morning we were in the mood to get creative and try something different, we were craving something along the lines of an omelette or savoury pancakes so we kind of combined them with the limited ingredients we were working with and voila!

(I’ve listed other things you could try out or that would work great with it but we just didn’t have on hand, so once I try it out with these I’ll update the recipe.)

*You can change up the veg in this, e.g peppers, spinach, broccoli, tomatoes, mushrooms!
*AquaFaba (chickpea water) would probably improve the consistency if you have it on hand!
*Blended potato could work well with the mix.
*Non dairy yoghurt or baking powder may make the end result fluffier, feel free to play around and experiment.

Ingredients (1-2 People)

200g of white or gram flour (Chickpea flour, I used white but added this in as an alternative for gluten free).
3 crushed garlic cloves (or a few tbsp garlic/onion powder)
Seasonings and herbs of choice, I used;
black pepper, smoked paprika, 2 tbsp turmeric, a pinch of salt, a handful of fresh parsley.
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
200ml dairy free milk
200ml veg stock
1/2 tsp black Himalayan salt (tastes EXACTLY like egg)
1 tbsp sesame oil

Vegetables I had on hand to use; (alter to preference)
Potatoes
Red Onion
Garlic

Method

1.Combine dry ingredients, then add wet and whisk (or blend) until no longer lumpy and smooth.

2.Dice vegetables and fry on a medium heat in a pan with any oil of your choice until golden brown or slightly charred.

3.Transfer vegetables to a bowl.

4.Using the same pan, scatter a few vegetables around the pan and pour a ladleful of the mixture over until covering the base of the pan and vegetables.
(You could also pour the batter in then place vegetables on top which would make it easier to flip but you’ll have to work fast!)

5. Flip once edges appear cooked, it usually takes between 3 and 7 minutes.

6.Make sure it’s cooked all the way through (no mushy bits, and usually browned on both sides).

7. Serve hot with condiments, vegetables and any other breakfast/brunch sides you fancy! I love Cholula hot sauce & Hummus, with beans, salad and mushrooms on the side.

Chocolate Power Pancakes

The past few months I’ve been more active than I’ve been in a long time (I think it’s got something to do with the amazing weather recently) from yoga to cycling, hiking, walking the dogs, or hitting the gym. So one thing I’m always looking out for is a breakfast that’ll keep me full & going throughout the morning and needless to say, I’ve found it! It’s packed with good stuff, plus it’s oil & refined sugar free. I thought up this recipe and tried it out, and i think it’s one of my best pancake recipes yet if I do say so myself.

Ingredients (1-2 people)

2 1/2 cups oats (about 225g) – Blend in food processor or blender till flour consistency
2 Scoops of protein powder (I used Sunwarrior Raw chocolate)
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 – 1 tbsp of Maca powder
1/2 tbsp chia seeds, 1/2 tbsp flax seeds – Make chia flax egg (mix with 3 tbsp water and leave to gel together)
2 tbsp organic unrefined brown sugar (or any other unrefined natural sugar of your choice)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract (optional)
2 cups of any plant based dairy free milk
Coconut oil (or spray oil if you don’t have a non – stick pan)
Toppings of your choice (fruit, syrup etc)
