Vegan Omelette for One

Courtesy of the Fat Free Vegan Kitchen:

Vegan Omelette for One

It’s essential to use a truly non-stick skillet to make the omelet come out of the pan intact. Be sure to oil it and have it hot before you pour the batter into the pan. If the unfortunate happens and your omelet sticks, open-faced omelettes taste good, too!
Also: You may double this recipe but you must divide the batter in half and cook it as two separate omelets. If you try to cook too much at one time, your omelet will not cook properly.


6 ounces (1/2 package) Silken tofu
1 tablespoon soymilk
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 tablespoon potato starch or cornstarch
1 teaspoon tahini
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon turmeric
1/4-1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1 pinch chipotle pepper or smoked paprika (optional)
Also needed:
Omelette filling of choice (have filling warm or at room temperature)


Blend together all ingredients until smooth. (I use a Magic Bullet blender, but you may use any small blender or hand blender. To use a larger blender, you may have to make a double batch.)
Spray a large non-stick skillet with olive oil and heat on medium-high until very hot. Pour the batter into the center of the skillet in a circular pattern about 6-8 inches across, and use a spoon or spatula to smooth over the top. Place your filling ingredients over the batter, and reduce the heat to medium-low.
In the pan
Cover and cook for about 3-5 minutes, checking often to see if it’s done. When the edges have dried out and the middle is no longer liquidy, lift a small section with a spatula and check to see that the omelette is set. It will be golden in color and browned in spots. When it’s ready, loosen the omelette by sliding the spatula under it from each direction, and then fold one side over the other.
After turning
Cook for about one more minute. Carefully lift or slide it onto a plate and serve hot.


  • If you make more than one omelet, clean the skillet and re-heat it on high. To cook through properly, the skillet must be hot when you pour the batter in.
  • Make sure that your filling ingredients are dry. Drain vegetables well before adding to the omelet.
  • The texture of the omelet inside is similar to scrambled tofu, moist and creamy, not fluffy as an egg omelet. If the tofu still looks wet in the middle, continue cooking on low until it appears more set. Even if it does not get completely dry, it will still be tasty, though moist.
  • If you have trouble getting your omelets to cook all the way through, divide the batter in half and make two small omelets.

Karma + Erica

Most of you will remember Karma, the handsome colt rescued through Hope Farm Delta and Karmvavore fundraising efforts.

Karma is doing very well since his life saving surgery and has grown into a handsome, fast, and healthy horse!

He has also found his new forever home where he will be placed in January, with Erica, where he will be loved and taken care of.

Janet Friesen of Hope Farm Delta, who has been the single most important person of this effort, has taken care of and raised Karma, including all transport and veterinary arrangements, and finding him his suitable forever home. Here is an update from Janet:

Karma is an amazingly confident, brave and
intelligent fellow. He is getting quite muscular and of course, beautiful. He loves to play and run very fast. He tests my 24 year old gelding's patience, but nothing is more patient than a horse. A lot of the time he is just quiet and taking in all the information. He is still happy to hang around people even when the herd is far away. He really connects with Erica and her parents. Her father says he has seen a thousand colts but none with Karma's brain. He acts like he is a much older horse, except for teething on his lead rope. He has a wonderful, calm mind and spirit and the name Karma befits his noble being. He has an old soul. I think he is on a wonderful path and will be happy at his new home. Thank-you to everyone who helped him, especially Salim and Jenn. You are generous beyond imagination.

Thank you Janet for everything you have done for Karma! You have not only saved his life but also given him a warm and loving upbringing, and ensured his happiness in a good home.

For those that wish to help make a contribution to Hope Farm Delta, you may contact Janet at

Janet also wishes to mention the following Horse Rescue organizations that could also use your help!
