Vegan Omelette for One
Another winner from Susan Voisin!
See the original post for this recipe HERE
in her blog: Fat Free Vegan.
This recipe is just plain fabulous!! I still can't get over how much like the egg version this omelette really is!! I make this for myself at least once a week.
You will definitely need to use a non-stick skillet to make this omelette, even using some Pam Spray as well. However, there are some wonderful new non-stick pans out there that do not need ANY oil or pan spray. Two brands are Berndes and Swiss Diamond. I recently bought a Swiss Diamond 12" skillet, and am utterly amazed at how well it works with zero oil or Pam Spray or anything! A video of this omelette being cooked in my Swiss Diamond pan is further down on this page.
- I always make double the recipe, in order to use an entire package of the Mori-Nu Silken Tofu. I cook up half the batter for one omelette, and then just refrigerate the remainder for the next time I want an omelette. I've kept the batter for several days in the refrigerator with no problems.
- Susan's recipe calls for extra firm silken tofu, but I usually use Mori-Nu's firm silken (since I can get that in an organic form ... why doesn't Mori Nu offer the extra firm in organic??). Using the firm Mori-Nu, I can just skip the one tablespoon of soymilk that Susan calls for.
- If you have a stick blender, that whips all these ingredients together very easily! I've also used a regular blender, but it's a bit hard to scrape out all batter from the blades.
- My favorite way to eat this omelette is just plain, but a little Daiya Cheese is wonderful too!!

No oil or even Pam Spray needed.
I know this looks like an infomercial for Swiss Diamond, but honestly, these pans are the best thing I've found in a long time!! I first found out about these from Bryanna Clark Grogan. She was a presenting chef at the June, 2008 "Celebrity Chefs" weekend hosted and arranged by Dr. John McDougall.
Mary and John McDougall do not use any added fats or oils in their recipes, not even so much as Pam Spray. Mary McDougall introduced Bryanna to these pans, and she was very impressed with them after using them for the weekend.
Now that I have one, I really have to agree. See the video below (run time: 2:25) to see just how non-stick a dry, ungreased pan really is! This video demonstrates cooking the Vegan Omelette for One, by Susan Voisin, in the Swiss Diamond pan. (And no, I'm not a spokesperson for Swiss Diamond ... !!)
