Wake up to the flavors of Italy with this Vegan Caprese Omelette for breakfast! This is a vegan version of the classic breakfast omelette that uses protein-rich chickpea flour as the base instead of eggs.

Prep the veggies then whisk up the omelette batter, like you would for pancakes. Pour some of the batter into a small, non-stick pan (this is key!) until it covers the bottom. 

Cook for a few minutes until it starts to bubble, then layer the veggies and vegan cheese on one side and carefully fold the other side over to create the omelette.

After a few minutes, flip the omelette and finish cooking until the cheese is melted and the omelette is golden brown.

You can really use any ingredients you’d like to make this Vegan Caprese Omelette. This is a perfect end-of-the-week breakfast to make when you’re looking to use up leftover vegetables from the refrigerator.
