One of the most popular recipes on this blog is the Eggless Vegan Omelette With Mushrooms and Spinach. Yet many people have pointed out that it contains tofu, and why does it have soy in it, and what can I eat if I want an omelette and I don’t want soy, and why you are so mean to me?
To quiet those complaining folks down and to keep my sanity, I have a soy free version of the vegan omelette for you to try. I worked on the recipe and finally got it where I wanted it taste and texture wise. This vegan omelette recipe serves just two people, so if you are making it for a group or family, just double or triple it as needed.
The recipe calls for black salt, which gives the vegan omelette an “eggy” taste and satisfies that vegan urge for an omelette fix. I strongly suggest that you find some locally or order it online by clicking the image.
Feel free to add vegan cheese shreds, hot peppers, different vegetables, vegan sausage crumbled up – whatever you want. Consider this recipe a frame of construction around which you will build your omelette house.

Let cook 2-3 minutes on second side, then place half the sauteed vegetables on one half of the omelette, sprinkle it with half the remaining salt, then flip other half over.
