Savory Plant-Based Omelette

Savory Plant-Based Omelette

Here is my go-to plant-based omelette.

Preparation Time: 2 Minutes

Cooking Time: 5 Minutes


1/4 cup chickpea (garbanzo bean) flour (affiliate link)

1/4 cup + 1 tbsp warm water

1/8 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/4 teaspoon turmeric (for colour)

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon dried parsley

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (affiliate link)

Black pepper

Optional fillings


  1. In a bowl, first, whisk all of the ingredients together until thinned out and smooth.
  2. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  3. Pour the mixture into the pan, and tilt the pan to spread the batter to the desired size.
  4. Cook for 5-7 minutes then flip, cooking for another 2 minutes.
  5. Plate and fill with desired fillings.
  6. Top with optional salsa or guacamole.
  7. Enjoy!

Cooking Tip:

Don’t taste the raw batter. Uncooked chickpea flour tastes horrible but becomes much better with cooking!

Filling Ideas:

Keep in mind that these omelettes can be small, so make sure to use a small amount of filling. Ideas for fillings include:

  • Diced bell peppers
  • Cheese
  • Tofu (Grated or small cubes)
  • Spinach
  • Halved cherry tomatoes
  • Halved olives
  • Chopped onions (of any colour)
  • Beans of any kind
  • Broccoli
