Vegan Cheese Omelette

Slide1

NEW REVISED RECIPE

I created an eggless vegan cholesterol-free omelette a short time ago. It was light and full of promise, but it needed a deeper, richer taste, less ‘floury’, and a more exciting texture. Making egg dishes without the use of eggs is indeed a challenge, both in the taste and especially in the texture arena. After some experimentation I reached a wonderful balance and I hope this fulfils all your egg omelette cravings, without having to eat eggs again.  This result here is a fluffy, soft, light and flavoursome omelette – easy to like, and great for making different variations of this theme.  Enjoy with your favourite sausages, or just with a mixed salad.  Great for breakfast, lunch or supper.  Bon Appétit !

Note re-texture :-  People’s preference for the texture of omelettes differ, some like it dense and others prefer a softer less dense texture (personally, I fall under the latter, something between the texture of an omelette and a thick scramble) – SO, if you prefer a denser omelette, you may wish to add more flour to your mix – in any event if you are unsure, then I suggest a fast small test as follows:- prepare the batter as per recipe and spoon a little of the it in a hot non-stick pan, around a tablespoon’s worth – fry it on both sides and if you like the texture make your omelette, if you want a denser one add more flour – mark down the amount you have used if you have altered this from the amount given on the recipe so that you know the exact preferable quantity in advance for subsequent times.

Makes 2 thick omelettes – around 4 portions

INGREDIENTS

200g firm silken tofu

¼ tsp turmeric

¼ tsp ground garlic granules

salt to taste (or else for an “egg-ier” flavor, you could try kala namak (black salt) – available from Indian grocery stores. It adds a sulfuric, eggy taste.

3 Tbsp nutritional yeast

¾ cup soya milk or any other vegan milk (cashew milk)

1 heaped tsp tahini

11/2 Tbsp white flour (can be made with gluten free flour – it’s best to buy a ready mixed one – if not I suggest tapioca, rice and corn mixed together to make the suggested amount).

1 Tbsp of chickpea/gram flour

FOR THE FILLING :

4 slices of vegan cheese of your choice, cut into 2 inch squares (or around 1½  cups grated mozzarella cheese)

oil for frying

METHOD

  1. Place all the above ingredients in a plastic or metal mixing bowl, and, using an electric hand blender (or processor) blend until ingredients are totally smooth.
  2. Next, in a non-stick pan, heat up a very small amount of oil. When it’s hot, pour  a ladle of the omelette mix/batter into the pan, and allow to settle for a few seconds. Wwirl it around at the outset so that it is evenly distributed, then, within a few seconds, place the equivalent of one slice of cheese (the ones you have already cut up in squares) –  these will most likely begin to ‘melt’ within a minute or so.
  3. Next, fold one half of the omelette on top of itself, and do this by gently working your way in from the edges with a metal spatula.
  4. Finally, flip it over and allow to cook for a further minute or so, or until golden.
  5. Serve onto your plate, and enjoy with any other vegan accompaniment – we had ours with vegan sausages and ketchup.
  6. Enjoy !!

  1. Yvonne Harley Says:

    Oh I need to try this – where can I find the recipe for your mozarella cheese. I have one but not convinced by the taste

  2. Phil : ) Says:

    I did used to enjoy Omlettes back in the day.
    I make yummy vegan pancakes but I’ve not had a go at vegan omelette and this I have to try. Thanks Miriam. Will report back with review.

  3. Miriam Says:

    Hi there Phil, as you know very well vegan substitutes for all time favourites vary – as I also mentioned in the intro to this recipe “it’s something between an omelette and pancake (in taste) – and was very gentle. It’s the ideal brunch – easy to make, and I hope you enjoy it too ! It’s not as dense as an egg omelette, but it does the job, especially if served with vegan sausages and beans. Let me know how it goes and best to you as always Phil !

  4. Miriam Says:

    Yvonne Hi there, do let me know how this goes – I have not yet published my mozzarella cheese – try it with another in the meantime and get a feel for the omelette itself (I added nutritional yeast to the batter so it’s a little cheezy itself). Let me know how it goes. Best to you in the meantime.

  5. Maryan Says:

  12. Karen Says:

    Looks amazing! Will certainly be making this! Miriam, I’m interested to know your opinion regarding soy; there seems to be quite a bit of negativity surrounding is use; what is your take on it? Thank you for all your delicious recipes!

  13. Seb Says:

    This made me hungry, although I’m not so into “replacement” ingredients… Looks delicious…

  16. sande waybill Says:

    Wonderful! I do not like omelt myself, but my father hankers after cheese omelt and i do NOT want to buy eggs just to please his taste buds – so THIS recipe will be given a try real soon!

  17. Miriam Says:

    Sande Hi there and welcome here. Many thanks for dropping by here with your comment. I hope your dad enjoys these, and if you take a bite, I hope you enjoy it too. Best wishes to you in the meantime. Cheers !

I am delighted that you have come across my page and hope that you enjoy this omelette together with my other recipes (see categories on the right hand side when you get a chance). I very much look forward to your future comments on my blog. Cheers in the meantime.

  19. Miriam Says:

    Hi there Karen and welcome here. Many thanks for dropping by with your comment here. I believe in moderation. If tofu was that bad, then I believe the Japanese would not be around today – that said with all that one has read and heard ‘my pendulum’ swings in the middle somewhere, by that I mean I cook and eat tofu in moderation, plus many of my dishes don’t call for it. Moderation – in my household I use tofu 1-2 a month at most. Also, Organic and non-GMO:
    Many commercially available brands of tofu are made from organic and non-genetically modified soybeans, and, as an added bonus, most organic and non-gmo tofu brands are the same price as conventionally produced tofu. Look for Nasoya brand, Mori-nu organic and other organic tofu brands. The organic tofu usually is not genetically modified. Hope this info helps. Best.

  20. Miriam Says:

    Hi there Seb, thanks for dropping by here with your comment. You are allowed to indulge in cruelty free recipes, especially if all or most of what you are eating is healthy – the origins of this recipe are still all plant-based. Hope you make and enjoy this. You could always tell yourself this is a savoury pancake ! Very best to you !

  21. Miriam Says:

    Hi there Sei and welcome here. Many thanks for dropping by here with your comment. I do hope you try out this recipe and enjoy it – meantime you could try a commercially branded vegan cheese ? Very Best to you in the meantime, and let me know how it goes.

  22. Miriam Says:

    Hi there Vivienne, thanks for dropping by here with your comment. I do hope you try and enjoy this recipe – do let me know how it goes, it’s a very easy one to prepare. Best wishes to you !

  23. Alba Says:

    Great and delicious!

  24. Miriam Says:

    Alba Hi there and welcome here. Glad you enjoyed this recipe. I look forward to your future comments on my blog. Best to you.

  25. August Says:

    Miriam the taste was great but my consistency remained very soft near runny. I tried tweaking the temperature I was cooking at, putting in smaller amounts of batter and smaller amounts of Diaya cheese. I even added small amounts of additional flour. I’m also trying a chill to the batter as I find my vegan waffles always do better when I make the batter the night before and let it chill overnight. Any suggestions I would love to serve this up to my non vegan friends but not till I get the right consistency plus one of the few things I miss from my omnivores life was egg dishes like omelets.

  26. Miriam Says:

    August Hi there and welcome here. I am just about to tweak the recipe myself – reason being that it can improve and I spent time yesterday doing so with a fabulous result that I think may well just do the trick, so look out for my new revised and improved recipe later on today. Best to you in the meantime, and let me know how it goes ! Cheers !

  27. Miriam Says:

    Hi August, I have just revised the omelette recipe, tried and tested it, and it should work great for you. Please let me know how you get along.

Best to you in the meantime and hope you try it out – bear in mind you may use any veggies of your own choice as a filling. http://mouthwateringvegan.com/2012/06/23/my-spanish-omelette/ Cheers !

  37. sophie Says:

    I have made this twice so far, and it’s gorgeous! I used Cheezly mozzerella vegan cheese.

    thank you so much for all the amazing recipes, gonna try the spanish omelette next!

  38. Miriam Says:

    Hi there Sofie and welcome here. Here is my Vegan Spanish Omelette for you to try sometime soon http://mouthwateringvegan.com/2012/06/23/my-spanish-omelette/ – hope you enjoy it. If you wish to use spinach be sure it is as dry as possible. I look forward to your future comments on my blog. Cheers to you in the meantime !

  39. Maraika Says:

    I just tried this and have to say this is one of my least favourite of all the recipes I have tried so far. I too ended up with a soft gooey mess (although I ate it anyway:). I will try with another Tab of flour. It is more likely to be the cook rather than the ingredients.

  40. Vegan_Forever Says:

    That looks yummy :D

  41. Miriam Says:

    Thanks. V Forever.

  42. Miriam Says:

    Maraika Hi, prior to your making this a handful of other people tried it and liked it except for one whose consistency remained a little runny – after that I tweaked the recipe and since then I as well as others have tried it with much success. The only thing that I will say (if you used all the ingredients that I suggested) is be absolutely sure to try a spoonful first before spooning in the right amount to make up an entire omelette. Be sure that your non-stick pan is hot, be sure to see if the small amount you added flips easily once cooked on one side – the taste is a good one, but the consistency must be like that of an omelette – so if your small trial one doesn’t shape up like one, you must add more flour and less liquid in your next mix. If you’ve already made it and are in the process of trying it out, then add a little more flour – it does not have egg in it to help it bind, it the other ingredients, ie the tofu and flour that do that. The last thing to remember is that the consistency of the batter will be far thicker than what we recall the non-vegan egg version to be, so comparing the consistency of the batter thinking that the vegan one is too thick (which it is by comparison to it’s non-vegan version) would be a mistake. The spanish omelette is divine, dressed up with the other vegetables and some great cheese (this is another factor in this recipe, you must have cheese that melts and tastes good), then you are there. Once satisfied, this makes for a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner snack. Hope these detailed tips help you. Best.

  43. Corelli Says:

    Thanks for all the recipes here … I don’t know where to start

  44. Miriam Says:

    Corelli Hi there an thanks for dropping by here. I hope you enjoy my recipes. Best to you !

  45. Steph Says:

    Hi Miriam! Thank you so much for coming up with this! It’s added allot of fun to lunchtime :) we’re having it today with ‘cheese’ & tomato. My two toddlers love this. I have to say though that it took allot of playing around until I got it just right. I reckon it probably depends on brand tofu used…I can leave away all liquid and it’s perfect or add the liquid and add nearly a cup of flour! So yes I reckon everyone has to try what way it works for them. I also agree to start with a spoonful in the pan first and see how easy it is to flip and consistency once it’s done. Yummy! Thanks again for this great inspiration! x

  46. Miriam Says:

    Steph Hi there and thanks for your ever-so-constructive comment here. You are absolutely correct, the type of tofu etc all play a big role in this delicate yet simple vegan omelette. I am however delighted that you and your two toddlers are enjoying it. Try the spanish omelette I posted up for variety. It is indeed a very versatile recipe. Best wishes your way and I look forward to your future comments on my blog !

  47. zara Says:

    one question; 200g firm silken tofu tofu is or silken, or firm isn’t it? should I use firm or the soft one?

    thank you, the picture looks so good, I’d like to try it as soon as possible!!

  48. Miriam Says:

    Zara Hi there and welcome here. Firm silken tofu, yes, the firm one. Now remember to test the batter by frying a little 1st (use a teaspoon and fry a little to taste first in case you want a firmer finish) – if so add more flour to the batter and give it a good hand whisk. Hope you enjoy it and let me know how it goes. Bon appetite in the meantime !

  49. Brandie Says:

    I made this today for brunch. I added raw onions with the cheese, bc I love onions. Even though I have not mastered the art of a pretty omelette, this was tasty no matter how imperfect it looked :) another recipe I will be keeping. Maybe if I make this enough, I will have the prettiest looking omelette ever :)

  50. Miriam Says:

    Hi there Brandie and thanks for your comment and feedback. Taste is a number one factor – texture second here, but you will find that the more you make it the better it will turn out – add more flour and the consistency will be more dense. I agree about the onion, and it marries well with the cheese. I look forward to your future comments on my blog. Also, if you once loved your scramble allow me to suggest my tofu scramble for you to try at some point. Best to you in the meantime !

  51. Donna Says:

    This sounds delicious….not sure of the vegan cheese to buy…turning the corner on vegan…but this recipe looks divine….I need to try this….and the scramble tofu eggs…..! Thank you so much for posting this.
    Best wishes for a wonderful day.
    Donna

  52. Miriam Says:

    Hi there Donna and welcome here. Glad to have you on my blog. Hope you make and enjoy this – but do try my scramble tofu first. As for cheese Daiya is a good one – and my own will follow in my upcoming book (and very easy to make too !). Best wishes your way too and enjoy the day !

  53. Earlene Wortham Says:

    Just stared vegan love it and have used some of recipes great, trying to get my supply of things i need to cook with

  54. Miriam Says:

    Hi Earlene, good luck and kudos to you for this change ! Wonderful and brava !

  55. Tanya Marwood Says:

    This looks great – we will try it this weekend! Thanks Miriam.

  56. Jules Says:

    Hi there. I really want to make this recipe. Yum!! Can you give me a substitute for the tahini?
    Thx!!

  57. Miriam Says:

    Jules Hi there. You can try a non-dairy cream instead of tahini if you wish. Before you make the entire omelette be sure to fry out a spoonful of it first to check it for the consistency that you like and don’t forget the salt ! Enjoy !

  58. Miriam Says:

    Hi there Tanja and welcome here. This omelette is great especially if you also make your breakfast with the addition of mushrooms, beans and dare I say it a few potatoes (optional) remember before you make the entire omelette be sure to fry out a spoonful of it first to check it for the consistency that you like and don’t forget the salt ! Enjoy !

  59. Lynntofu Says:

    I just made the batter for this. Will be trying this in the morning for breakfast. I am subbing some cashew cheeze and putting in some chopped veggies (onions, mushrooms, red and green peppers, zucchini and maybe a few jolopeno peppers).

  60. Lynntofu Says:

    I just read the comments and saw your post for the Spanish omelet and that looks what I am going to make. lol I will let you know how it turns out.

  61. Miriam Says:

    Lynn Hi there and welcome here. Let me know how it goes and remember before you make the entire omelette be sure to fry out a spoonful of it first to check it for the consistency that you like and don’t forget the salt ! Enjoy ! :)

  62. Miriam Says:

    Lynn Hi there – Sounds good – I certainly hope you enjoy this and come back with your feedback :)

  63. Waterman Jim Says:

    Been an ovo-lacto vegetarian for 40 years.
    This omelette recipe intrigues me on many levels.
    (Certainly helped that you supplied one georgeous photo to get me salivating!)
    Gonna give it a whirl and listen to what my “buds” think.
    Thank you for your time and attention to detail.

  64. Miriam Says:

    Jim Hi there and welcome here. One of my most delicious egg sub recipes is my tofu scramble, here is the link to it – http://mouthwateringvegan.com/2011/01/01/easy-delicious-scrambled-egg-less-mushroom-delight/ – do let me know how this goes and please remember to try and fry a spoon first to see if the consistency is to your liking – some people prefer their ‘omelets’ less dense than others in which case you would add more liquid/milk. Best Wishes your way and I look forward to your feedback. :)

  65. Luda Andreyeva Says:

    Can’t wait to try it! Bought all the ingredients today; will make it tomorrow.

  66. Miriam Says:

    Hi again Luda, let me know how this goes. Note:- remember to try and fry a spoon first to see if the consistency is to your liking – Enjoy ! :)

  67. Vegansandy Says:

    Hello :) Beautiful omelet: I am going to try this version because mine breaks little itself! Thank you :)

  68. Miriam Says:

    Hi Sandy, thanks for your comment – I hope you enjoy my omelette ! Best wishes your way ! :)

  69. Marty Bellew-Smith, Ph.D. Says:

    I made this about two hours ago. I added an extra teaspoon of flour to the mixture. It was absolutely delicous and will become a staple in my house.

  70. Miriam Says:

    Marty Hi there and thanks again for dropping by with your comment and feedback – I sure am delighted that you have made and enjoyed this omelette and glad it will become a staple. Remember you can add pre-cooked veggies in it, even cut up pre-cooked potatoes to make up a Spanish Omelette if you want a more filling dish and a fast one, especially if you have some ready cooked ones lingering in the fridge. This cheese omelette also tastes great with some baked beans – filling and fun food, all cruelty free too – a win-win ! :)

  71. m Says:

    Hello Miriam! I wanted you to know that I found this recipe on Care2′s site and I made it this weekend. First and foremost, it is delicious! I wanted to find a substitute for eggs and this is it. However, I tried it first with a stainless steel pan and it sure didn’t work. I went that day to buy a ceramic non-stick and it worked better. I’m going to have to perfect it, perhaps adding more flour, as others have done, since it’s still a little sloppy. But the taste is suberb. Thank you so much, Miriam- I will be buying your cookbook.

  72. Miriam Says:

    M Hi there and welcome here. Would you be so kind as to sent me the link for the Care2 site where it is posted ? I have since slightly altered the recipe, I realized that I like my omelette less dense than others. I have added a little more flour – am using chickpea/gram flour to it, and it works even better. Hope you enjoy it again and the addition of cheese to it is great ! Best wishes your way and I look forward to your future comments on my blog and also for your interest in my upcoming book !

  73. m Says:

    Hi Miriam. I should have been more clear… I found a link to your recipe through an article on the Care2 website. The link went directly to your site and your amazing Vegan Cheese Omelet, so I believe everyone since your revision should see it. The article is called: “Ten Tasty Vegan Breakfast Ideas” by Becky Striepe- you are the 9th idea on page 3. It said it was awesome and I missed eggs… so it’s the only one I tried and as I said, I loved it and I will make again and again. You got quite a few good comments too. I hope you get a tremendous following. Thanks again for sharing. Here’s the link for you: http://www.care2.com/greenliving/vegan-breakfast-ideas.html?page=1

  74. Miriam Says:

    Thanks M, that’s so kind of you to explain ! (I saw the breakfast ideas, but did not see my omelette for some reason – no worries at all, it must be somewhere there). Best wishes your way and I look forward to your comments on my blog !

  75. m Says:

    Hi Miriam. Good morning. The article doesn’t mention your site, just a link that says to check out an “awesome vegan omelet”. On page 3 of the article, item #9, in that paragraph, click on “awesome vegan omelet” and it takes you to your vegan cheese omelet on your website. I want you to see it, so here’s the link to page 3— http://www.care2.com/greenliving/vegan-breakfast-ideas.html?page=3 Thanks again and my best to you.

  85. Raj Says:

    Dear Miriam, G’day

    I just made a stuffed version of this same dish. I made one small mistake of making the paste little thin. The result, I have to leave the omelet 2 mins extra in the pan, I got over roasted, but somehow managed to make it eatable. Thanks.

  87. Raj Says:

    Dear Miriam,
    ^-^ Thanks, I’m like begin-begin-beginner in cooking. I’m laughing to myself, why people think cooking is difficult, I can’t understand them!

    On Wednesday, I’m going to try Ratatouille before our tango practice.

    Thank you once again for all the encouraging words!

    No worries Raj.

  91. szilvia Says:

    can this be made with something other than tofu? (i don’t eat soy)

  92. Miriam Says:

    Hi Szilvia – try this :-
    Makes 2-3 depending on size
    1 cup chickpea flour
    1/4 cup plain flour
    Half tsp black salt ( for eggy flavor) or sea salt
    Half tsp baking soda
    1/4 tsp turmeric, optional for color
    1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast
    1 cup vegan milk

    Place the ingredients in a bowl and whisk till smooth, then fry a small quantity to try it out for consistency, if you like it thicker add more flour. Hope this helps.

  93. Julie Says:

    Hi Miriam I made this yesterday. It was delicious. I filled the omelette with fresh fried tomatoes, onions, mushrooms spinach and herbs. I didn’t use the vegan cheese. I added a couple more tablespoons of chickpea flour. My daughter and I both loved it. Thanks so much for the recipe.

  94. Miriam Says:

    You really are most welcome Julie, so glad to hear you and your daughter enjoyed this so much. Great thing about this recipe is you can fill it with whatever takes your fancy ! :)

    Oh dear…I just reread the recipe’s instructions in the revised version. I apologize. You did mention those things in the instructions. Initially, I was only checking the amounts on the ingredients. Please do not post my previous comment. It was just frustrating when we had such high expectations… We may try again with the suggestions. Best wishes.

    Hi Miriam,

    I made this for breakfast this morning, and while the taste was delicious (!) it didn’t out quite right. First, vegan cheese is a difficult thing to come by at 7am on a Saturday morning in Sydney so I instead fried together a tomato and a couple of chopped tofurky smoked slices. I also didn’t have any chickpea flour so used a bit more wheat flour. Anyway, it got stuck to the pan and would not flip, and it usually a relatively reliable non-stick pan. Do you think it is best to use a really good non-stick pan for this recipe?

    Toby Hi and glad you enjoyed the taste of this ‘omelette’. I think a couple of things could have worked out better for you for next time, here is what I suggest for you for best results :- 1. Make sure you have all the ingredients in advance including a vegan cheese of your choice that you like (I understand why you didn’t have this to hand). 2. A good non-stick pan is helpful and ideal. 3. I don’t know what ‘fat’ you choose to fry this in, but make sure it’s well heated. 4. Allow it to cook properly before flipping it over. You used tomatoes in it, it is possible since tomatoes yield so much juices that those juices thinned out the batter and caused part of the problem, so in this recipe I wouldn’t advise using them (fry them in another pan or grill them in halves for next time if you fancy tomatoes) – otherwise I think you will do well 2nd time round, make sure the batter is thick enough and ease the edges first before flipping. :)

    Hi Miriam! I just made this omelette for myself, and whilst it was thoroughly delicious, mine came out really mushy on the inside, a bit like runny scrambled egg. It cooked really fast on the outside though, so it would’ve burnt if I’d left it in the pan any longer. It fell to bits when I tried to fold it. Do you think cooking for longer on a lower heat would be better? Maybe I had my oil too hot? Or just more flour needed? Only recently discovered your blog, and am absolutely loving it, can’t wait to buy your book!

  101. Miriam Says:

    Hi Lois, worry not, just add more flour and it will bind better – just add 50% more flour and a little more salt and turmeric (don’t over do it) and you will have a perfect omelette. Enjoy ! :)

    This was delicious! Thank you for the recipe. I filled mine with vegan Parmesan cheese (cashews blended with nutritional yeast and salt), mushrooms, spinach, and freshly grown chives. The first time I made them, though, they were too moist, so I think I need to use less batter next time for each omelette. Do you think this recipe could work as a crustless quiche if I baked it in a pie pan?

  103. Miriam Says:

    Nichole Hi there, sounds like you enjoyed the omelette. I don’t know whether it would work as a crustless quiche, but you could give it a go, be sure to firm it up with a little extra flour if so. Good luck and look forward to your future comments on my blog ! :)

    I have tried the French omelette where we add cheese on top of the omelette. But this is something new to me. I am waiting to try this recipe today night. Is there any substitute for the black salt though?

  105. Miriam Says:

    Davis Hi there, hope you enjoy this. Normal sea salt will be fine for this. Best your way ! :)
