Vegan Chickpea Omelette

A Simple Chickpea Omelette with THIS™ isn’t Bacon

This Vegan breakfast comprises of a deliciously simple Chickpea omelette with THIS™ brand’s This is not bacon.

Now I love eggs, like REALLY love them. But I also like finding ways to enjoy meals without meat. Of course there are so many egg substitute brands out there now, however not all are good or even accessible.

This Vegan omelette is made from chickpea flour and a few other ingredients readily in the cupboard. To compliment the omelette I wanted to try the THIS™ isn’t bacon for the first time and to my surprise I really enjoyed it.

THIS™ isn’t Bacon

The THIS™ Co is a London based Vegan brand offering a wide variety of Meatless options. They are also very good on educating the importance of Co2 and water consumption within the business of meat vs a plant based lifestyle.

This brand is cool. I love the concept and the offerings of so many meat substitute options. Lets get into this not so Bacon, Bacon.

At first it reminded me of bacon jerky you would give to your pup, however once you throw it into a hot pan wit a little splash of oil, the fragrance is very meaty and inviting. When I took my first bite I knew this was a great choice.

No, it doesn’t taste like bacon. It does however taste smokey and delicious with hints of maple sweetness. I definitely enjoyed the taste of this and it has been used in a few other recipes you will see soon.

Making the Omelette

When I was vegan I used to make this on a regular using these few ingredients:

  • Gram flour – aka chickpea flour is the main flavor component and full of protein and nutrients.
  • All purpose flour -helps to give that egg texture while balancing the flavor of the gram flour.
  • Liquid – water or milk alternative helps to bind the ingredients.
  • Seasonings – because we love them!
  • Fillings – veg, cheese, meat substitute ect.

Chickpea flour can have a slightly bitter taste when raw. For that reason I like to cut it with the all purpose flour while also giving the batter more body from the gluten. You can easily make this GF by leaving out the AP Flour and it will be just as good.

I Filled my Omelette with a combination of Vegan Cheddar by Sainsbury’s Free From selection and Bute Island’s Sheese Red Leicester cheese. The mix of both is really good together and gives a great flavou with the omelette.
