Vegan Omelette

11 Jan

Just one day now until the Channel 4 documentary comes out.  Eeeek!

These don’t taste exactly the same as an egg omelette but are delicious none the less, experiment with your own fillings!

500g of silken tofu, 2 desert spoons nutritional yeast, 1 teaspoon turmeric, 1 level teaspoon black salt (can be omitted if you can’t find any), 60 grams gram flour (chickpea flour), 1 desert spoon cornflour (the white kind, not polenta), 2 cloves garlic (chopped or processed), 4 desert spoons olive oil, A drop of veggie oil, Black pepper to taste.

Filling idea: A punnet of sliced button mushrooms gently fried in garlic, wilted spinach, Easy Peasy Cheesy Sauce.

Makes 4 omelettes

Preparation time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 10 minutes per omelette

For this recipe you can use a food processor, a hand blender or a potato masher (and some patience). If you’re not using a processor then get a mixing bowl ready for your ingredients.

Start by preheating your biggest and best non-stick frying pan with a tiny bit of veggie oil. Add the garlic, tofu, nutritional yeast, olive oil, turmeric, pepper and black salt (this is what makes it eggy) and blend (or mash) until its smooth. Add the gram and corn flour and blend until its all mixed in.

Okay… this is the tricky bit. Slowly spoon a quarter of the omelette mix into the middle of the pan. Gently spread the mix into a rough 15 cm circle with the back of a wooden spoon. Fill in any holes or tears with a little extra mix. Then, if you’re picky like me, wash your spoon and use it to press the sides of the omelette to make it into a neater circle.

Let the omelette fry for 5 minutes before flipping it like a pancake. If your toppings need to melt or wilt you can pop them ontop now. Fry the other side of the omelette for a couple of minutes then slide it out of the pan onto a plate. Add any extra toppings, season and enjoy :).

    After watching the show fair play to all of you. The bit I can’t get my head is that I have a very high sex drive, and being around the women would turn me on, how do you deal with that!?!?!

    Fair play to you all. We were all born naked, why do we feel the need to cover up just to keep everyone else happy? People shouldn’t be embarressed about their bodies, whatever they look like.

    HI Guys!

    Just watching you on the Channel 4 documentary – fantastic!

    Well done for a) being brave enough and b) being comfortable enough with your bodies to help change other people’s perceptions.

    Ignore and delete any negative comments by small-minded people – their opinion really does not matter and deserves no airtime.

    Keep up the nude work – and great GREAT recipes 😉

    Hello. Saw the tv prog, felt compeled to write. So many females i know have major body issues, and nothing anyone can say will help. people need to be content n realise there is no right or wrong…just difference!!!! After about 5 mins of whatchin…i got naked lol! i wanted to do the naked bike ride in 2011 in manc, but was preg n not up to the biking. my body is far from what id like it to be and what it was before i had my baby but that is irrelavant to my life. i can stil wear nice clothes, my fella still loves me. if we were ment to wear clother 24 hours a day, wed be born with clothes. skin to skin is amazing wether its with your baby, fella or just a hand shake with a new person. on the deepest levels mankind relys on its senses, naked = honest. no one is perfect, naked is truth n i think that is what the world could do with at the mo. everything in moderation, including moderation!!!!! cant wait to try your vegan recipys!!!!!! go you!!!!!

    Interesting documentary. Food looks good too, although i’d be concerned about finding pubic hairs in the cuisine.

    I saw you all on the documentary today, I think what you’re doing is awesome, I wish I could find a group of people like you in my area (can’t even begin on how enthusiastically I’d get on board a naked baking group!). Keep up the awesome work, you guys are fierce 🙂

  16. Katzie January 13, 2012 at 3:24 am #

    Loved your input into the programme. You came across as friendly, ‘normal’ and a credit to yourselves. I’d happily take tea and cakes with you any day of the week! Website looks great too 🙂

    I watched the channel 4 thing, I came for the naked but I stayed for the recipes lol. I’m a generally dairy free eater due to intolerant, but me and the hubby are trying to be less meat-reliant…..and probably less clothes reliant now lol.
