Ingredients


200 gm Tofu, silken, soft (or organic firm silken tofu)
1 tbsp Soy milk, unsweetened
1 tbsp Nutritional yeast
1 tbsp Potato starch (or cornstarch)
1 tsp Tahini (optional)
1 dash Onion powder
1 dash Turmeric, ground
1 dash Salt (or to taste)
1 dash Paprika, smoked (a pinch; or chipotle pepper)
1 dash Black salt (Kala Namak) (a pinch)
1/3 cup Vegetable mix, chopped (vegetable filling of choice (have filling warm or at room temperature))

Instructions


  1. Blend together all ingredients except for vegetable filling until smooth. (If using a larger blender, you may have to make a double batch)
  2. Spray or wipe a large non-stick skillet lightly with oil and heat on medium-high until very hot. Pour the batter into the center of the skillet in a circular pattern about 6-8 inches across, and use a spoon or spatula to smooth over the top.
  3. Place your filling ingredients over the batter, and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and cook for about 3-5 minutes, checking often to see if it’s done.
  4. When the edges have dried out and the middle is no longer liquid, lift a small section with a spatula and check to see that the omelet is set. It will be golden in color and browned in spots. When it’s ready, loosen the omelet by sliding the spatula under it from each direction, and then fold one side over the other.
  5. Cook for 1 more minute. Carefully lift or slide it onto a plate and serve hot.
