Therefore, I came up with omelette recipe including tofu and I was thrilled. Finally, I got the same taste, texture and satisfaction.
So, I had to share this awesome vegan omelette recipe with you all.
Ingredients you will need:

I have used these easily available ingredients in this recipe which you may buy from any grocery store. However, I have provided links to few of them here for your convenience.

- Silken tofu – it’s a softer version of tofu that blends easily and makes the batter smooth. It is a soy product and is high in protein. This is also a great egg substitute and works perfectly well in this recipe.
- Cornstarch – I used the gluten free cornstarch. I used it in a minimum quantity just to bind this omelet recipe while cooking.
- Nutritional yeast – this brings out a nice color, texture and flavor which resembles a lot similar to regular omelette. It is also very nutritious being a great source of vitamin B12.
- Turmeric – along with having medicinal properties, turmeric is great to add the color to this breakfast recipe which would resemble the original one.
- Dairy free milk – I used oat milk since it was handy for me but you may use any unsweetened dairy free milk of your choice for this recipe. However, you may want to make sure of the measurements because we do not want an excessive runny batter.
How to make Vegan Omelette
Firstly, I blended all the omelette ingredients in the blender and kept it aside.
Secondly, I heated oil in a nonstick pan and sauteed onion until it starts to change into brown color.
Next, I tossed in tomatoes and cooked it until they were mushy.
Thereafter, I tossed in mushrooms and let it cook for 3-4 minutes at medium heat.
Afterwards, I added spinach, salt and cayenne pepper to it and mixed it well.
Then, I turned it off and removed from the heat.
In the same pan or in another nonstick pan, I heated 1-2 tbsp of olive oil again and poured about 1/2 cup of the batter at its center.
Then, I immediately, lowered the flame to medium. Next, I cooked it covered until it was dry at the top and ready.
Then, I topped it with about 2 tbsp of the stuffing at it center and gently folded the tofu omelette.
Later, I turned of the flame and left it in the hot pan for 1-2 minutes for it to firm up.
Lastly, I gently scooped it out of the pan with the help of a spatula on the serving plate and garnished with vegan queso and chopped cilantro.
I served it with toast to my family but I preferred eating it as is.
It was amazingly delicious and satisfying. Finally, I could satisfy my egg cravings. So, now it’s our regular breakfast.
So, by now, you must have realized how easy this recipe is and once you make it you will know how wonderfully satisfying it is. At the same, its loaded with protein and other nutrition, making it a perfect way to start your day.
- While blending the ingredients pour the milk first in the blender and then other ingredients for a smooth and easy blending experience.
- Be careful with the measurements and do not add more liquid other than recommended because we do not want an excessive runny batter.
- Oil is a must in this recipe so that this vegan omelette doe not break or dry up. Oil helps in cooking this recipe better and brings out a good texture.
- While cooking the omelette, once you pour the batter on the greased pan cover and cook at medium flame, it should rise and bubbles should form. Remove the lid at this point and gently check with your finger if you feel the top dry. Or else cook cover and cook for another few minutes. Do not be in a rush to take it out or stuff it.
This tastes best when served immediately.
You may blend the batter and refrigerate it for 2-3 days in an air tight glass container. Also, you may prepare the stuffing and refrigerate for about a week. When ready just microwave the stuffing and start cooking the omelette. Might take a bit more time to cook but it will still work the same.
