Chickpea Omelette

chickpea omelette

A while back I made an Indian Omelette, which uses chickpea flour as its base, with Indian spices. I liked that, but wanted to try one that might be a little more like the omelettes that I used to eat. Chickpea flour does have taste that similar to eggs. The recipe is so simple it’s not really a recipe. I used a half cup of chickpea flour, then just enough water to make it more or less like pancake batter. The salt and pepper, and diced veggies and herbs (garlic, parsley, basil, red pepper, zucchini and summer squash) and then cooked it more or less like a regular omelette, then folding it and stuffing it with spinach, steamed asparagus, sautéed red onion and teese. It was great, the only drawback being that it’s a little dry. Granted, I’d had plenty of egg omelettes that were just as dry, so perhaps this is normal. I think that for my taste, I might add a little soy milk or soy yogurt to the base next time.

A note about the napkin- I really prefer to use reusable napkins. I bought these ones recently on Etsy, from this seller. She’s got lots of other ones, as do other sellers on Etsy. Check them out! And no, I’m not paid for this endorsement; I just think handmade items are mighty cool.
