Tofu OmeletteThis Vegan Tofu Omelette recipe is fluffy and is packed with double dose of protein from tofu and chickpea flour.

For Day 2 of this week’s ‘Pick a protein’ theme, I have a Tofu Omelette recipe that is fluffy and absolutely delicious. These vegan omelettes are perfect to make for weekend breakfast or brunch. I served them with some hash browns for a filling and comforting meal.

I have already posted quite a few vegan versions of traditional egg based dishes – like this quiche, scramble, pizza etc. So when I saw this omelette recipe in ‘Vegan Brunch‘ cookbook, I wanted to try it for my family to see if they can see the difference. I am happy to report that everyone loved these and my 10 year old even came back for seconds.Tofu OmeletteSilken tofu (not the vacuum packed kind) aka soft tofu is used instead of egg to make this tofu omelette. Another key ingredient is chickpea flour which gives tofu fluffiness and an egg like taste. So basically this is a fusion cheela with tofu and they taste a lot like them too.

These tofu omelettes can be served just as is or you can get creative and stuff them with roasted, sauteed or fresh veggies or cheese. I ate mine with some green chutney and ketchup.

  1. Cant wait to try this vegan beauty, tofu omelette sounds absolutely prefect for vegan lovers. And i have never tried adding nutritional yeast in my foods. Time to get them and try this alluring omelette.

  2. Fantastic option Pavani..for my mega bm I had replaced chickpea flour for all egg recipes though I am not personally very fond of tofu, so had to skip it. Together these surely make a high protein kick!

  3. Indeed a protien rich meal. Like Valli, I dont like tofu but I think I can skip it. Will def try your recipe Pavani.
