Place a plate on top of your Spanish omelette, place your hand on the plate and flip the omelette. Then, add more olive oil if necessary and carefully transfer the vegan Spanish omelette back into the pan and continue cooking until is lightly browned.
- Repeat the same flipping technique with the plate and the frying pan to cook the omelette if one of both sides is not completely cooked.
