IMGP2305.jpg

INGREDIENTS

- Omelette
200g firm tofu
3 Tbls soya milk
2 Tbls miso paste
1 Tbls potato starch
1/2 Tbls mirin
1/2 Tsp turmeric
1 pinch paprika
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup rice flour
(1 Tbls nutritional yeast, if you have or can get.)

- Filling
100g spinach
100g mushrooms
2 cloves garlic
1 Tbls olive oil
1 Tbls soya sauce
1 Tbls vegan mayonnaise
Salt and pepper to taste


Directions:
1. Mix all ingredients of the omelette with blender until smooth.
2. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, add minced garlic. When the garlic starts to smell good, add spinach and sliced mushrooms.
3. Once the vegetables are tender, add soya sauce and mayonnaise. Stir and cook, add salt and pepper to taste and set aside.
4. Add vegetable oil to a non-stick frying pan (do not preheat - see memo), add half of the tofu mixture and spread out the mixture to make the shape of an omelette about 7mm thick. Turn on the heat and fry it over low heat until the bottom side is starting to brown. Gently flip it over. After the other side starts to brown, transfer omelette to a dish.
5. Cook the rest of the tofu mixture in the same way. Put the cooked spinach and mushroom's filling on half of each of the omelettes. Fold the omelette to cover the filling. EAT!!



We can veganize almost all foods that use eggs now, but it can be difficult to make dishes that have egg as the main ingredient (i.e. omelettes!) I use tofu and rice flour for the texture, miso for taste and turmeric for appearance. It totally looks like egg. From the filling, you can smell the nice garlic. And the mix of the taste of mayonnaise and soya sauce makes you feel so satisfied.
In the UK or America, I think you can get nutritional yeast or black salt (Kala namak) easily, so you can add them if you want to make it more eggy.

Vegan Memo:
- You should spread the tofu mixture on to the pan BEFORE heating it. If you add the mixture to a hot frying pan it will be difficult to spread.
- It's difficult to flip it over, so please be careful!
- This filling has enough taste, so you don't need additional sauce I think.
- If you don't have a blender or food processor, you can do it by hand. But you have to mix really hard!!
