Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup chickpea flour
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tbsp water (for a total of 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp water for each omelette).
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp salt (black salt for a more egg-like flavor)
  • 1/2 cup vegetables of choice

Instructions

  1. Measure out the chickpea flour, nutritional yeast, and salt and store it in a large jar or plastic water bottle with a wide lid like a Nalgene.
  2. Bring along any veggies or vegan cheese that you would like in the omelets. Cut them up ahead of time and store in baggies or dice them at the campsite.
  3. If camping with children or a lot of people set out the ingredients in buffet style and let people make their own.

  4. Give everyone a sandwich bag with their name on it and allow them to fill the bag about 1 inch deep with veggies of their choice.

When you’re ready to make your omelets...

  1. Pour the water into the jar of the dry mixture and give it a stir. (Shaking alone unfortunately doesn’t get out the clumps).
  2. Pour about 2/3 cup of batter into each bag, squeeze out excess air from the bag and seal completely.
  3. Drop the bag into a large pot of boiling water and boil for 12-15 minutes until it becomes firm. (Use a wooden spoon to keep the bags from touching the hot edge of the pot).
  4. Take out of the water and allow it to cool for about 5 minutes before opening the bag.
