VEGAN OMELETTE

VEGAN OMELETTE

Traditionally omelettes are made of beaten eggs; such as chicken eggs. So if you are wondering How to make vegan omelet, in order to make this classic dish into a vegan omelette I used chickpea flour. Also, this simple and easy vegan chickpea flour omelette recipe was made with fresh and delicious ingredients which are great for a vegan breakfast.

WHAT IS CHICKPEA FLOUR?

Chickpea flour is a great type of flour that is made of chickpea/garbanzo beans. Also, this flour is known as besan flour, gram flour, and garbanzo bean flour.

One of the fantastic characteristics of this flour is that is gluten-free; therefore, is ideal for people with celiac disease or wheat intolerance. Furthermore, you can also use this flour mixed with other flour; such as wheat flour. And also gluten-free ones; for example rice flour, brown rice flour, potato starch, etc.

Additionally, I love this chickpea flour as you can use it as an egg replacement, and works really well as a bidding ingredient; hence you can also make a vegan version of scrambled eggs and Spanish omelette recipes too.
