Asparagus Omelet in a Bag

  • 1 cup (120 g) chickpea flour
  • 3 tablespoons (15 g) nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons (15 g) cornstarch
  • 1½ teaspoons Indian black salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1¾ cups (415 ml) vegetable broth
  • 2 cups (250 g) chopped asparagus, woody ends trimmed
  • 1 cup (40 g) packed baby spinach or arugula
  • ½ cup (55 g) vegan Cheddar shreds (optional)
  • ¼ cup (30 g) diced shallots
  • Cooking oil spray

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the chickpea flour, nutri-tional yeast, cornstarch, Indian black salt, and black pepper until combined. Pour vegetable broth into the flour and whisk until smooth, then divide the mixture between 4 sealable sandwich bags. Next, place ½ cup (75 g) of asparagus, ¼ cup (10 g) of spinach, 2 tablespoons (15 g) of Cheddar shreds (if using), and 1 tablespoon (7 g) of shallots into each bag. Store in the refrigerator or an iced cooler for up to 1 week, or move on to preparing it.When you are ready to prepare an omelet, warm a pan or well-seasoned cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Spray the pan with a thin layer of cooking oil. Once it is hot, shake the omelet bag vigorously. Pour the mixture into the pan and cook on one side for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the edges start to brown. Flip one half over onto the other half and cook for another 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining bags, when ready, and serve hot.

Yield: 4 servings

Tip: If you have the space and aren’t worried about weight, you can bottle these omelets up in 12-ounce (355-ml) jars. An omelet may not seem like an inherently vegan dish, but this asparagus spinach omelet with a chickpea base is quite outstanding! Make this omelet-in-a-bag recipe for your next camping trip or overnight stay, so that you don’t have to sacrifice quality for convenience.
