Last week Seth and I had a discussion about IHOP and we talked about how we used to frequent the restaurant for breakfast (pre-vegan) and he mentioned their omelets. Then I said, ‘next week, I will make you an omelet!’ I’ve attempted the vegan omelet several times over the years and continue to try and perfect it. Since we both had the day off and better yet, it was my hunny’s birthday – I made Omelets yesterday! This recipe is very flavorful in my opinion and you can add any filling(s) you’d like. I had spinach, onions and garlic on hand so that was today’s filling. Don’t get discouraged in your attempts to make your vegan omelet, sometimes they break or it can get tricky to flip. Just be patient, stick with it and enjoy!

-Gently smooth out the omelet batter from the center and pulling outward until batter is evenly spread throughout the pan. (if there are any holes smooth the batter over to cover).

      Thank you! Let me know how you make out if you do. 🙂
      I read about your wild mushrooms, I’d love to try that one day. I see wild mushrooms all the time, but I’m always nervous that I’ll pick ones that aren’t edible. :/

        It is imperative to be absolutely certain that a wild mushroom is edible. I have had an interest in wild edible foods for much of my life and include many wild edibles frequently in my diet, but the area of mushrooms is incredibly complicated. Of the numerous mushrooms that show up at our place I have only been able to positively identify four or five as being edible. It’s an area I would love to be an expert in but I am not.

      Yummy, that sounds like it would make for an awesome omelet. I’ve had the “Vegg” before at a vegan restaurant once, I think I confirmed at least 3 times that it was vegan before diving in, lol, it really looked like a yolk. I’ll definitely have to try the Follow Your Heart brand.
      Thank you so much! 🙂
