What-You-Have-In-Hand Oven Omelette

Nutritious and delicious oil-free vegan oven omelette with summer squash, carrots and chickpea flour.

There I was the other evening – the fridge almost empty, but needed to fix something for dinner. I only had a summer squash, carrots, half turnip, potatoes, and celery stalks left. I chose omelette.

At first I thought I’d just make a quick wok with some beans and rice, but then noticed a grater and remembered I have chickpea flour in the cupboard, and had another idea – a dish of summer squash-carrot oven omelette with turnip-potato mash and cashew mayonnaise was born.

Omelette


Description

Nutritious and delicious oil-free vegan oven omelette with summer squash, carrots and chickpea flour.


Scale

Ingredients

OMELETTE

  • 1 summer squash, finely grated
  • 1 carrot, finely grated
  • 1 celery stalk, finely grated
  • handful on onion flakes
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 5 tbsp chickpea flour
  • marjoram or oregano, Himalayan salt, pepper to taste

TURNIP-POTATO MASH

  • ½ turnip
  • 4 small potatoes
  • a bit of stock powder (I use organic, yeast-free)
  • water

Instructions

OMELETTE

  1. Heat oven to 190C (374F).
  2. In a bowl, mix the grated vegetables with onion flakes, garlic powder, chickpea flour and oregano, salt, pepper.
  3. Place this mixture in an oven dish and bake for about 30 minutes (the top of it should be dry, baked).

TURNIP-POTATO MASH

  1. Peal and cube the vegetables.
  2. Boil in stock for about 10 minutes or until soft enough to mash them. I used a hand masher and left some bugger chunks in, because I like it! Mix in fresh parsley.
  3. To finish the dish I quickly prepared some cashew mayonnaise to pour on as well. I halved the recipe, but one can also prepare some extra to store in fridge for next meals.

Notes

As this meal is quite high in fat, make other meals leaner that day or omit the cashew cream and have a slice of whole-grain bread instead.

I served the omelette and mash with green salad (about 200g).
