Omelette with Silken Tofu (V, GF)

When I’m craving a high protein breakfast this omelette is one of the meals that I enjoy very much. The main ingredient is silken tofu which imitates that eggy structure. I also put in cashews and vegan cream cheese that add some cheesy flavour.

This meal doesn’t need a lot of preparation. Just blend everything together in a food processor then cook the omelette in a pan. You can eat the omelette without any filling or choose a filling you like. For me this omelette goes best together with vegan sausage, lentils, beans and beetroot.

Ingredients
  

Omelette batter:

  • 170 g extra firm silken tofu
  • heaped 4 tsp nutritional yeast I used fortified with B12
  • 9 g (1 tbsp) arrowroot starch
  • 15 ml (1 tbsp) coconut cream only the cream part from a can of coconut cream (without water)*
  • 12 g cashews
  • 8 g (1/2 tbsp) vegan cream cheese plain
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp turmeric powder

For making omelette:

  • 1/3 tsp vegan butter

Suggested fillings:

  • vegan sausage store bought or homemade, gluten free if needed
  • red lentils
  • beetroot grated
  • beans of choice

Suggested toppings:

  • avocado sliced
  • micro greens

Instructions
 

  • First prepare the filling if using any. For the filling that I'm using I cook store bought vegan sausage on a pan for a couple of minutes, turning it around so that every side is cooked. I cook red lentils in water for 5 min then I drain the excess water. To the bowl with lentils I add some beans (from a can) and grated beetroot. I slice the cooked vegan sausage and add it to the mix as well. I mix everything together.
  • Put all ingredients for the omelette batter into a food processor and blend well, scraping down the sides until the mixture is very smooth.
  • Heat a non sticky pan on high heat and melt vegan butter. Transfer the omelette batter into the pan and spread it with the back of a spoon evenly. Don't try to make it very thin, it's suppose to be thicker.
  • Turn the heat to low, cover the pan and cook for 5 min.
  • Uncover the pan and if you are not using any filling, carefully flip the omelette, cover the pan again and cook for another 5 min. If you are using filling, place it on half of the omelette then carefully lift the other half of the omelette and cover the filling with it. Cover the pan and cook another 3-5 min.
  • Serve warm with some sliced avocado and micro greens on top for decoration.

Notes

*Put a can of coconut cream in the refrigerator a few hours before starting if it’s not already there.
*I like plain vegan cream cheese from brands Violife and Viofree.
*You could also use the same omelette batter for vegan frittata. Instead of cooking in the pan, pour the mixture (you will need about 3 times the quantity of all ingredients) in a round baking dish (I used 23 cm), greased with oil. Add vegetables of choice in the mixture. I think that spinach and asparagus work very well here (I wilt the spinach on medium heat on the stove beforehand and roast chopped asparagus at 200 °C for 10 min). Bake frittata at 180 °C for 40 min. Add desired toppings or sides. I love having some avocado with this frittata.
*Prep time and nutrition information does not include the suggested filling.
*I got the inspiration for this recipe from Fat Free Vegan Kitchen.
