I'm An Omelet Master!

I've attempted to make Fat-Free Vegan's Tofu Omelet several times. And each time, the "egg" mixture sticks to my crappy old not-so-non-stick pans and becomes a fancied-up version of tofu scramble ... until today. Check this out:


Sorry for the crappy photo ... it was still dark outside when I ate this!

Yep, I've masted the tofu omelet! It's only because my mom gave me her hand-me-down cookware after she got a shiny new set of Rachel Ray pots and pans for Christmas. Her non-stick pans actually prevent sticking! Even though the omelet tastes the same no matter how it looks, presentation is pretty darn important.

This omelet is stuffed with Cheddar Teese and sauteed bell pepper and mushrooms. Since I whipped up the omelet batter and sauteed the veggies last night, tossing it together for breakfast today was a snap.

If you haven't tried this recipe yet, you must. I was always a big omelet fan in my omni days and this has all the fluffiness of a real egg omelet. It even tastes just like the real thing minus that icky battery cage cruelty.

As much as I love Susan's recipes, I think I'm gonna stick out for the release of Vegan Brunch to attempt my first veg omelet. I just feel like Isa is queen of everything. haha, and only 2 months left!

Oh my gosh! That is just amazing, I can't believe how beautiful that is! It looks like an egg omelet, exactly. I will have to check out this recipe.

You are an omelette master and a care-package winner! (Read my blog entry for details)

Kiersten said...

That looks so good! I am going to bookmark that recipe right now. I'm glad you finally got a non-stick pan that doesn't stick. Everyone needs one of those.

Vegan_Noodle said...

What was the trick? I've made those before and had sticking problems too. Maybe I just need to try again. I need to learn from the omelet master!

man, look at you! you are an omelet master!

Laura said...

where are you getting your teese at?? i really want to buy some.

Cyn said...

Your omelet is so pretty! It turned out perfectly. I've had issues with that omelet sticking too - I also have issues where it doesn't really cook through properly and has an unfortunate bit of ooze to it.

twoveganboys said...

You ARE the omelet master. Seriously! That looks freakin' awesome.

madaboutudon said...

Mmm, nicely done! Looks delicious! Good cookware really does make a difference!

aTxVegn said...

Ha ha, a good nonstick pan makes all the difference! I learned that with a bundt pan not too long ago. That omelet looks so much like the real thing. I'm need to do a breakfast for dinner again soon.

jodye said...

Looks delicious! yay for teese!

Macie said...

Oh my god! I must try some of that faux cheese... I can see it peeping out the side of the omelet, and it looks SO good!!!

Mike K said...

I love this recipe - I made the same thing from Susan's site. I never thought I would eat anything like an omelette again, but this is really great.

River said...

Awesome omelet mastery! I haven't tried this one yet, will have to wait until I'm over the soy-free thing.
