Chickpea Omelet from Scratch

The Recipe

Chickpea Omelet #WFPB


1/4 cup besan (chickpea flour)
1/3 cup water
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp black salt
1/4 - 1 cup of vegetables of choice (onions, garlic, turmeric, chilis, parsley, spinach, peppers, mushrooms... etc etc)
1 cup of water (optional with Yondu, or BLA, or use veggie broth)


Mix chickpea flour, nutritional yeast, salt and whisk to eliminate clumps, add the water and whisk until smooth, let it stand while you prepare the rest.

Cut up onions, garlic, peppers, chilis and dry roast for a few mins at medium high for 5 mins, no stirring.
Mix in desired spices, and/or green veggies e.g. garlic, turmeric, parsley, panchpuran, spinach, peppers, mushroom, and stir-fry at medium high for another 5 mins, slowly adding in water.

Continue to cook at medium, for another 5 mins while adding in the mixed flour with the nutritional yeast and black salt, and cook some more while slowly adding the other 1/2 cup of water or veggie broth.

You can make this as an omelet or scrambled, with toast, or, at your option serve with a grain like Farro.
