Vegan omelet seems like an oxymoron, but Rita Serano, author of the new Vegan in 7 cookbook, has figured out the secret ingredient: chickpea flour. In this genius recipe, she mixes the chickpea flour with water to create an omelet -like texture, then stuffs it with fresh herbs in the style of Persian staple Kuku Sabzi.

Vegan Kuku Sabzi

Kuku (pronounced koo-koo) is a savory Iranian omelet. The word sabzi refers to the large amount of herbs used, which makes this a beautifully green and very tasty way to start the day. Chickpea flour is a perfect egg substitute, and the amount makes four individual omelets.

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup chickpea flour
  • Bunch of fresh parsley, chopped
  • Bunch of fresh cilantro, chopped
  • ½ bunch of fresh dill, chopped
  • 4 scallions, chopped
  • ¾ cup chopped walnuts
  • Non-dairy yogurt (we love Kite Hill Greek-Style almond milk yogurt) or hot sauce, to serve

Method

  1. Mix the chickpea flour with ⅔ cup of water in a bowl and stir until smooth and free of lumps. Stir in the chopped herbs, scallions, walnuts, and ¼ teaspoon of salt.
  2. Heat a nonstick skillet over high heat (adding a little olive oil or coconut oil if necessary). Spoon in ¼ of the batter, swirl around the skillet to spread evenly, and cook for about 2 minutes. When the top is dry, carefully flip it over and cook the other side for 2 minutes.
  3. Transfer the "omelet" to a plate and cover with a piece of foil to keep it warm while you cook the other three "omelets." Serve with yogurt or hot sauce.
