Omelet

Posted by on Feb 26, 2010 in Blog

If you’ve been reading my blog (THANK YOU!) you know I’m always looking for breakfast idea’s. When people ask me what food I miss most, I use to say cheese, actually there’s some pretty tasty “cheese” choices out there. So I guess, no not cheese. I think probably it would be eggs. I’ve long ago given up “fried” eggs, went to “egg beaters” now, I can’t even do that! I did make the “bitches”
breakfast burrito with yumming results. Now, I’ve tried their omelet, (they call it “bitchlette”).
I’ve modified it…it was really good…..give it a try!

“Omelet”
Serves 2
9 – 10 oz firm or extra firm tofu, crumbled (use a fork or your hands)
3 oz vegan any kind of cheese (I used a combo of Cheddar and Jack)
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 teaspoons nutritional yeast flakes

2 teaspoons tamari
2 teaspoons Ener-G egg replacer
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon refined coconut oil
Filling of your choice
Examples: green and red peppers, onion, Vegan ham or bacon
I used leftover roasted vegetables I made the other night.

In a large bowl, combine the tofu, cheese, garlic, yeast flakes, tamari, egg replacer, turmeric, salt and pepper. Set aside.
In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, melt 1/2 tablespoon of the coconut oil. Add your filling of choice, (not ham or bacon if using) stirring occasionally until tender,
about 3 minutes.
Transfer vegetables to a plate or bowl.
Return the skillet to medium heat and melt the remaining oil. Add the tofu mixture and cook stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. Then spread it evenly in the pan and cook, without stirring, until nicely browned on the bottom, 2 to 3 minutes.
Arrange the filling mixture and bacon and ham(if using) on top of one side of the omelet. Remove from the heat and gently slide the omelet about halfway onto a serving plate. Carefully turn the pan over to fold the omelet in half on the plate.
This recipe would make a great Mexican Omelet…fill with corn, beans, salsa, cheese….yum…
I think I’ve solved my breakfast dilemma…..finally!
ENJOY!
