Egg-free omelette – Chickpea pancakes

omelette egg free veganThe most delicious vegan breakfast pancakes.
Egg-free omelette – how can this be possible? Well, it can..  Usually I don’t buy eggs, but I just looove a good omelette so that’s often a hard decision. All you need to make these is chickpea flour, chili, chives, lemon, salt and pepper, and some water. Which you whisk up and then cook in a small frying pan for a couple of minutes.

Not quiet the same as a traditional omelette, they have a different taste and texture. But taste with your own favorite spices and ingredients and you’ll have your new favourite morning or supper. They take about five minutes to make, need just a few ingredients and taste amazing.
I made this creamy spanish romesco pesto to these pancakes the other day. It was so good! I hope you want to try out this recipe. Just remember to taste the dough before making, and add more lemon, salt, pepper og chili if needed.
