Good morning, beautiful people! It’s Saturday, the sun is shining and the world is waiting for you. But, before you head out to enjoy this lovely weekend, you’ve got to fill your bellies with a hearty, healthy breakfast…or brunch. Between the silken tofu and tahini, this omelette has a nice balance of carbohydrates, protein and fat. It also has a nice amount of fiber and antioxidant-rich vegetables. Top with fresh avocado, salsa, hot sauce, and there you have it…a breakfast of champions!

Yields 1 huge omelette (serves 1-2)

6 ounces (1/2 package) Mori-nu lite silken tofu (or organic firm silken tofu)
1 tablespoon soymilk
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 tablespoon potato starch or cornstarch1 teaspoon tahini (optional)
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)
1 pinch kala namak (black salt), optional (adds an eggy taste; look for it in Indian grocery stores)
Also needed:
Omelette filling of choice (make sure filling ingredients are at room temperature and not frozen)
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
1/4 cup onion, diced
1/2 cup baby kale, spinach, or chard
2 cloves garlic, crushed and diced


Blend together all ingredients until smooth (use a food processor or blender).

Spray or wipe a large non-stick skillet lightly with 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.

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.

Cook for about one more minute. Carefully lift or slide it onto a plate and serve hot.
