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
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).

Fried Peach Pasta Salad w/fresh mangoes & blueberries

But for 24,240 hours, you've patiently waited for me while I explored other things like getting married, expanding my reach on Instagram, getting a promotion, going on many tours with my band and recording two amazing (if I do say so myself) albums. And now I'm back for a little while because I missed you and I hope you missed me too.Speaking of missing stuff: ya know how in the Summer heat you can wait for Fall so you can wear your favorite sweater? And in the dead of Winter all you can daydream about how tan you're going to be come Summer? Well, Boise is officially entering the phase of Summer that makes you beg for Fall. With temps over 100 everyday it can be hard to cook, eat, or just function in general.

This quick and cooling salad is a one stop shop for a meal. It's got everything you need for it to be a successful single main dish, but it def works as side dish too.

Look a lot of people are dependent on salt to enhance the flavor of their food but here's the deal - too much salt (like anything else) is not awesome for your body, or your head, or your brain, or your mind (claps for anyone who can guess what movie that loose quote is from). I could go in to a long lecture-speech on the effects of eating too much salt but y'all ain't here for that and google is free. 
When you're ready to reduce your salt intake look for other flavor enhancers to make your meal's best attributes (a.k.a. flavors) P O P ! Like adding a squeeze or two of fresh lemon or lime juice, or your fave type of vinegar if you don't have any fresh lemon or limes; you really can't go wrong with adding fresh minced garlic, ginger, green onions, cilantro, basil, jalapeƱos, like literally any fresh strong flavor will do the trick and do it salt-free. In those times of desperate need get you a lil pump spray bottle and fill it with Braggs Liquid Aminos or co…
