How To Make Vegan Eggless Omelette

Eggless Omelette That’s So Good You Won’t Notice It’s Vegan!

Imagine a silky, fluffy omelette served with a generous heap of veggies and a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. Each bite is so fulfilling and seems to be the only right way to start your day. There is something about having eggs or omelette for breakfast, but if you are on a vegan diet, you’re out of luck. 

I have you covered, though! I’m quite interested in experimenting with various egg replacements in my recipes, and the one I’m sharing today is Eggless Omelette for all the vegan souls out there.

What Makes Eggless Omelette Taste Like Eggs?

If I’d need to choose the key ingredients in this recipe these would probably be tofu and black salt. Tofu is just perfect for this type of recipe because it helps create that pancake-like batter that we need for this omelette. A lot of my friends fell in love with tofu when they switched to a plant-based diet, and it’s quite a versatile ingredient because it has a pretty mild taste and will soak up the flavours you add to it. I must say I enjoy it quite a lot in plant-based versions of traditional recipes with meat sauces. I used tofu when I was creating my recipe for Vegetarian Spaghetti Bolognese and it was an absolute hit! 

Let’s get back to the other star in the Eggless Omelette recipe – black salt. This one is quite interesting and I use it only on special occasions like this one. Lol! Jokes aside, it’s indeed a type of salt that you will use only with certain types of recipes because it has a very potent smell. I don’t know if it’s only me, but for me, salt brings about the smell of sea. Black salt, however, smells like eggs! It’s very rich in sulfur, which gives the salt its peculiar smell, but that is exactly why black salt is great for this recipe.

Besides these two ingredients, I also used turmeric for the bright yellow colour, some savoury yeast and shallots for flavour, and plant milk to bind everything together. The full recipe is right below!
