"This tastes just like eggs!"

…was the husband’s exclamation after throwing back one of these omelets in three minutes flat. Seriously, I caught him licking his empty plate before the intro credits to Angel started!


2012-12-03 - VJF Potato Soyrizo Omelet - 0010


The recipe, as per usual, is from Lane Gold’s Vegan Junk Food. (Have I told you lately how much I love this cookbook? Because I do! The holidays are coming up and it’d make a great gift for the vegan – or vegetarian, or omnivore; basically any of the food eaters – in your life. Plus it’s small enough that I bet it could fit in a stocking. Think about it okay!)

Anyway, I expected Gold’s Potato Soyrizo Omelet to be comprised mostly of tofu, like all of the omelets I’ve tried previously. Joke’s on me: in addition to tofu, the batter also contains flour and soy milk. The result is an omelet that looks and tastes like eggs (tumeric and nutritional yeast, yo!), but is also vaguely reminiscent of a pancake – complete with crispy, crunchy fried edges. You actually cook it like a pancake – both sides, evenly – and only add the “filling” once it’s done. That way you’re not stuck with any not-quite-done bits in the center (see, e.g., The Hangover Tofu Omelet from The Tipsy Vegan.) Mama likes!

This one’s a keeper, alright.
