Now, let's talk omelets. If you've been following this blog for awhile, you're probably sick of hearing me gush about vegan omelets and sharing pics of my omelet successes and omelet failures. But I love tofu omelets, and I'm probably going to blog about them every time I make one. 

This morning, I made the first vegan omelet recipe I tried several years ago. That would be Fat-Free Vegan Kitchen's Tofu Omelet for One:


It's not my best work. What you can't see here is the giant hole in the other side where I tore the tofu egg as I attempted to fold. But I've done much worse. I've only ever perfected the tofu omelet once, and it was damn beautiful. But regardless of what it looks like on the outside, it's what's inside that counts, right?


This one was stuffed with sauteed bell peppers and onions and Galaxy Mozzarella Vegan Shreds. It was lovely served with a slice of whole wheat toast schmeared with pepper jelly.

If you've never tried a tofu omelet, get thee to Fat-Free Vegan Kitchen stat. It's made with blended silk tofu, cornstarch, nutritional yeast, and some other magic stuff. You spread the batter in a skillet and it cooks up JUST LIKE EGGS! Just one more way to prove that eggs are pointless. There's also a great tofu omelet recipe in Vegan Brunch and a baked omelet in Happy Herbivore. I like to alternate the three in my breakfast repertoire.

I really should try a tofu omelet one of these days. I also really like the idea of pepper jelly. Nice breakfast.

Eggs are so pointless! Most people I know like tofu eggy things (as long as they're not biased about tofu to begin with...but then, I could just not tell them, ha ha), but it really is a damn-near-perfect egg sub.

I support you blogging about every tofu omelet you make.

I love your cookbook!!! I've already knocked out one tofu recipe.

Babette said...

This is also probably the best tofu omelet I've ever had. But you really need a non-stick skillet for that =)

I want one! I can't believe I've still never tried one of these... need to rectify the situation ASAP!

Kelly said...

Haha! I love that line, eggs are indeed pointless! I'm going to tell that to the next person who asks me why I don't eat them.

Rip be damned - that is a gorgeous omelet!

That looks like a damn good tofu omelet.
