Omelette Stacks

This morning was not a zombie apocalypse and it wasn't a Sunday hangover type morning, but it is Vegan MoFo and the prompt for today is Pantry Meal: Don’t go out and buy anything fresh for this meal, cook something just using the contents of your storecupboards!

I have a propensity to plan for the worst of the future. From the zombie apocalypse to Sunday morning hangover, I like to be prepared when it comes to noms because there are few things I love more than eating. I keep my pantry full and my tiny freezer stocked with foods that can be prepared quickly and easily. There's a shelf in my pantry that's just packed with jars of pancake mix, gravy mix, omelette mix, cheese sauce mix etc. (all housemade, of course). I keep these mixes in my upcycled Adams peanut butter jars and make labels out of tape that tell anyone looking in what the mix is and how much liquid to add to it to make it turn into food. My freezer is crammed with frozen fruit, veggies, and faux meats (because my mom gave me 5lbs of Beyond Chicken and 5lbs of Beyond Beef Crumbles).

My brunch was prepared from my pantry's omelette mix and cheese sauce mix. Once I added water to the omelette mix, I added in some frozen peas to the batter. While the omelettes were cooking, I cooked up some frozen Beyond Chicken and frozen kale to top my omelettes and put together a cheese sauce for drizzling.

I know you can see the bright bottom layer of fresh red cabbage, but I didn't go out and buy that for this challenge. I know exactly when I bought it - it was actually the cabbage I bought for Day 7 of Vegan MoFo for the color prompt and it's still packing the crunch. I'm a big fan of raw and cooked foods mixed together and I try to invite them both to every meal I have. But back to business, the greatest thing about cabbage is that shit holds up for weeks in the fridge.

Omelette Mix

1 1/2 c chickpea flour
1/4 c nutritional yeast
1/4 c ground flax seed
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp turmeric

1 tsp black salt 
  • Mix all of this shit together and store in an airtight container in your pantry until you're ready for omelettes.
  • When the mood or the zombie apocalypse strikes, combine 1/3 cup of your omelette mix and 1/3 cup of water and fry in a pan until it's cooked through and golden on each side. 
I know traditionally the fold is where all the cool fillings hangout, but these omelettes can be difficult to fold; so I like to make smaller, silver dollar sized omelettes and stack all of my cool ass fillings on top.

Up next, we have now entered in to the third week of MoFo and the best week so far: IT'S BUDGET WEEK. I'm like real good at eating vegan on a budget so I think I'm going to nail this.

ICYMI, previously I gave you some tips on oil free life. Check it out

Can't get enough? I'm all over the place, let's follow each other (cause that doesn't sound creepy, at all!) InstagramTwitterFacebook, and Pinterest.  Nothing makes me heart more full than when people let me know they've tried my recipes. If you wanna help make my heart happy you can # vegan4one, comment on the post, post on my wall, tweet at me; whichever socials you feel comfy with.

All the love,

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…
