Enjoy this flavourful Chickpea Omelette for Brunch. The cooking method is easy and is aided by a lid. No flipping of the entire omelette is needed. Add fillings of your choice. Today’s fillings are sautéed diced bell pepper, diced onion, garlic, and jalapeño slices. The non-dairy cheddar shreds were added on top of the omelette. Then the veggies were added on the cheese. A little more cheese was added on top of the veggies. The veggie blend was cooked first before making the omelette. This recipe is soy-free, gluten-free, egg-free, Esther Approved, and vegan.

Chickpea Omelette
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 7 minutes without fillings
Yields: 2 omelettes
Author: Chef Linda | Esther's Kitchen

1 cup chickpea flour
1 teaspoon tapioca flour
2 teaspoons potato flour
1/2 teaspoon Kala Namak salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon melted coconut oil
1/8 teaspoon ground turmeric
pinch of ground cumin
1 Tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes
1-1/4 cups water

1. Stir all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl first. Pour in the water. Whisk until smooth. Let the batter rest for 5 minutes.
2. Heat a nonstick pan on medium heat. Melt nondairy butter in the pan. Pour the batter in the pan. Add the lid on the pan. Begin to swirl the pan with the lid on to spread the uncooked batter to the sides. Cook for about 5-7 minutes. Once you begin to see the surface cooked, begin to loosen the sides and bottom of the omelette with a spatula. Shift the pan occasionally to loosen the omelette.
3. Add nondairy cheese or precooked vegetable fillings down the center. Fold one side of the omelette over the center. Fold the other side of the omelette onto the first folded side. Place the lid on the pan. Cook for an additional 1 minute to melt the nondairy cheese. Slide the omelette out of the pan and onto a plate.
