  • Roasted Vegetable Toflette

    Yes – a vegan omelette made with tofu is actually called a Toflette. This version is packed with roasted vegetables which transforms the humble omelette into a fancy lunch or delicious dinner. Once you’ve mastered the basic omelette recipe you can adapt it to whatever you’re in the mood for. We love a mushroom omelette and tomato and your favourite vegan cheese is also great. If you want to omit the vegetables altogether, a plain version of this omelette is great as part of a vegan brunch with grilled mushrooms, baked beans and wholemeal toast.

    Ingredients:

    Omelette

    400g tofu (silken or block) – well pressed

    3 tbsp nutritional yeast

    1 ½ tsp kalam nalak

    2 tsp all-purpose flour

    1 tsp chia seeds

    1 tsp turmeric

    1 tsp garlic powder

    ½ tsp asafoetida

    1 cup unsweetened plant milk

    Salt and pepper

    A dash of olive oil

    Roasted Veg

    A mixture of some or all of the below, approx. 1 cup of each:

    1 cup mushrooms

    2-3 shallots

    1 courgette

    1 small aubergine

    1 leek – white part only

    Asparagus

    A few cloves garlic, whole

    Red or yellow pepper

    Cooked, diced potato

    Method:

    Chop the vegetables into small cubes and place on a baking tray with a drizzle of olive oil and mix to ensure they are evenly coated. Add salt and pepper and place in a pre-heated oven at 200 deg. C for 40-45 minutes or until the veg is golden brown. Mix the vegetables with a slotted spoon half-way through cooking to ensure they are roasting evenly.

    The Veg
    The Veg

    While the vegetables are roasting, crumble the pressed tofu into a bowl, add the milk and chia seeds and mix thoroughly. The chia seeds will expand gradually, absorbing the extra liquid and act as a super-healthy gelling agent. Mix the flour and spices together separately kalam nalak, turmeric, garlic powder, asafoetida and add to the tofu mixture. Mix together with a hand mixer or transfer to a blender and whizz together. You want the consistency of cake mix so add a splash more milk if necessary. Leave in the bowl and allow it to sit while the vegetables finish in the oven. This will allow the chia seeds to fully expand and do their magic.

    When the veg is cooked add it to the bowl with the omelette mix and give it a stir

     Heat a dash of olive oil in a non-stick frying pan on a moderate heat. Pour in the omelette mix with vegetables and spread out over the pan as you would with a pancake. Cook the first side until it has started to brown and flip to cook the 2nd side. Alternatively you can place it under a grill to cook the top.
