Follow Your Heart Vegan Egg Omelettes
Follow Your Heart makes some fantastic foods for those of us on restricted diets. Their newest creation is a vegan egg that is free of soy, dairy, egg, gluten, and nuts. It comes in this cute little box that looks like an egg carton, but the contents are yellow powder in a bag. I like the package though because it feels fun and whimsical. You can use this substitute for making things like omelettes, scrambled eggs, or baked goods and frittatas. It is totally amazing! I have made about ten different omelettes since buying this new product a few weeks ago, I am not kidding! I made scrambled eggs, and I am planning to make some baked goods soon to see how they turn out. My guess is — fabulous, just based on my experiences so far.
I used to LOVE eating eggs. I mean, I had them for breakfast almost every day. My favorite was sunny side up with a soft and runny yolk. Boy do I miss those days. Egg and cheese sandwich was second to sunny side and my 3rd favorite was omelettes. With these new vegan eggs, I can’t do sunny side up for obvious reasons (no yolk folks), but I can make tons of omelettes. I don’t really eat bread, so I have not tried making a sandwich yet.
Anyway, I have been filling my omelettes with all kinds of fun things. I took leftover roasted broccoli and cauliflower and blended it with a little cashew cheese, then stuffed it into the omelette when cooking it. I did diced sweet potatoes with spinach and vegan cheese. I also really liked putting some leftover shredded pulled pork inside the omelette with sauteed kale and onions. I am suddenly craving an omelette again. I can’t imagine why.
I do recommend adding some seasoning to the egg because it is on the bland side. It reminded me of real eggs in appearance and even smell ( I have NO idea how they did that), but the taste was more like matzah meal. When I added fillings, it was just right. But, when I did them scrambled, I felt it needed some garlic, onion, or dill; basil and oregano, or even some pepper. I wrote up this recipe for the broccoli, spinach, cauliflower omelette that I made most recently. You can see the fabulous filling coming out the sides as I dig into my meal. I should have taken photos all along the way so you could see all my creations, but I was distracted by my incredible urgency to eat my ‘eggs’ for breakfast.
