Chickpea Omelette

Omelettes are a pretty widely loved breakfast item, yes? I thought so. It never really crosses my mind to attempt to make omelettes but this morning something about the idea really tickled my fancy. See I've made an omelette before, and while it was easy and super tasty, it didn't really fit into my idea of healthy; so, I rarely make it.

To me healthy has little to do with balancing carbs, fats, and proteins. Or fighting with counting calories, which I've totally done before. Over the years, I've grown to believe that if it comes in a package its not healthy. If you can't eat it in it's natural state, then you shouldn't be eating it all.

For me that's a suggestion, not a rule. Sometimes I don't follow my own suggestions. Sometimes I want tofu or Daiya Cheese substitute.

And that's ok.
There are no rules.
Only delicious omelettes.



1/3 c dried chickpeas, ground into powder
1 tbsp flax seed, ground into powder

1 tbsp chia seed ground into powder
1/2 c non-dairy milk

1/4 c water
salt,
to taste
black pepper, to taste
cayenne, to taste
turmeric, to taste
1/2 tsp baking powder
onion, chopped

mushrooms, chopped
bell pepper, chopped
1/2 c baby spinach 

vegan cheese subsitute
  1. Combine the ground flax and 1/4 c water. Let them sit and get all congeal-y while you chop your veggies.
  2. After about 5 minutes, dump the chia seed, chickpeas, milk, spices, and baking powder into the congealed flax. Give it a good mixin'. If you think the batter is too thick add some more water.
  3. Fold in all your veggies, save half the spinach for the inside, and pour your omelette into a hot oiled pan.
  4. Cover with a lid and cook for 5 minutes or so.
  5. Flip and cook for 5-6 minutes, leaving the lid off.
  6. Add 1/4 cup of spinach on the inside along with your favorite non-dairy cheese (I used this cashew cheese sauce ::scroll down past the sammiches for the recipes::), fold and eat.

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

RESTAURANT REVIEW: Firenza

...

I’m not gonna lie to you my pizza was very bomb but everything else was very not.

Firenza (located in downtown Boise) looks, feels, and acts like a corporate fast food franchise because it is a corporate fast food franchise but it’s a corporate fast food franchise that offers vegan pizza, and if it wasn’t for the damn up-charges it would be, on the cheap. 

My guests and I walked through the front door of Firenza (which was kinda hard to find to be honest) and I immediately got thrown back to my high school cafeteria and not in a pleasant way. Imagine bare white walls and what looks like a giant high school logo painted over a pizza assembly line. 
We approached the pizza assembly line and I immediately told the staff member who welcomed us that this was our first time visiting the restaurant and asked for guidance. They said ok and blankly stared at us until I eventually broke the awkward silence and started asking about vegan options. 
The sauces on the menu were clearly marked as veg…

Savory Taco Pancakes

Below is an actual text I sent to my partner and son, but first some context: I practice Intermittent Fasting every day, so breakfast doesn't get served until noon or later daily - thus it's not really referred to as breakfast. We usually refer to it as "first meal" and sometimes brunch. My kid and partner can't really handle the late first meal on the weekends, but they deal surprisingly well. While I was making first meal today, my son was snacking on leftover cold pizza from yesterday and my partner was chugging a blueberry protein shake. So what does this have to do with the above referenced text? Well when they grew tired of waiting on me to finish putting together this dish, they decided to run down to our closest music store and grab some new guitar strings. Almost immediately after their departure, I had completed today's first meal and let me tell you I feel like a completed a masterpiece. So here's the text I sent in a group message as the van w…
