I'm allergic to eggs, dairy & soy... so I have to find alternatives for everything.

This is so simple to make and is absolutely delicious!!

You will need:
Chickpea/basan flour (I usually get mine at my local bulk food store)
Water
Salt & pepper to taste

This is what I like in mine, but you can add pretty much anything to it!! Make sure your veggies are finely chopped!
Spinach
red/purple onion
red peppers

Mix chickpea flour & water until slightly runnier than a standard pancake batter (I usually use about 1 C flour to 1 1/2 -2 cups water)
add chopped veggies and salt & pepper to taste, you can also mix in your favorite spices.

Use 1-2 tsp oil in your pan- pour in omelet mixture (very thin if you want an actual omelet or thicker if you want a scrambled omelet)
cook approx. 5- 10 minutes on med heat & Enjoy!!



Thanks for looking!!


P.s. If anyone wants to know what other alternative I use in my daily life don't hesitate to ask!

That is such a useful recipe, and so simple yet it can have multiple variants.  Saved for future use. Thank you very much.

No problem!  Glad I can help... it's so simple yet so delicious & it totally fills my craving for eggs!!  The first time I made it my husband asked me if I was crazy... he thought I was actually eating eggs!! LOL

You can use this as a none vegan/vegetarian recipe also by adding meat & cheese.
I've made it for my husband with cheese a few times & he says it's delicious!!

This looks so delicious! I can eat eggs but the smell of scrambled eggs makes me nausious so I never go for stuff like this but man this looks like something I could definately chow down on, I've been on such a breakfast kick lately too. I'm definatley going to be stopping by the healthfood store to look for that chickpea flour when I go into town. Thanks for sharing!

No it certainly doesn't taste like eggs, but it has a similar texture to eggs. I'm certain if you like chick peas you will like this!!!

im sure with a little work you could get something close..I was able to do it with tofu but if you didnt want it to taste like eggs it wouldn't really be a problem. Getting something to taste like something else spot on is pretty tough with agriculture products

Looks so good! I've never been a fan of tofu scrambles so I'm definitely going to try this!

Looks like an awesome alternate to my vegan brunch staple of tofu scramble--I'm trying to be less dependent on soy, and chickpeas are one of my favorite legumes. Thanks for sharing!

This is an awesome idea, I am surprised I have never seen this anywhere. I do love tofu scrambles, but this seems to be even less expensive and just as protein packed. I haven't ever used garbanzo bean flour before, im guessing it is not as gluey as wheat flour when mixed with liquid. Can't wait to try!

Chickpea flour does not contain gluten which in return means, right, it will not be as glue like when mixed with water.
Even though flour and water does make a great glue. (see wheat pasting)

Wow, that looks really interesting. I'll have to see if I can find that flour anywhere.

I'm curious, since you mentioned it - what do you use in place of milk? That's one of the reasons I can't/won't go vegan. I don't actually *drink* milk but I use it for cooking, and I've yet to come across any of the soy/oat/etc ones that are both a) non-sweetened and b) not gross. lol. And what about eggs for other stuff? Like, do you make any sort of pancakes? If so, what do you use?

That looks yummy! I did like the taste of eggs before I went vegan, so I wonder if adding some black salt would make it taste egg-ier? I'll hafta try that.
