  2. If you’re opting to make the broccoli, bell pepper, and cheddar filling,  add your avocado oil, garlic, diced peppers, steamed broccoli, and saute for 5 minutes.  Add in your cheddar cheese, toss to combine, and turn your heat down to low.  Cover your pan and let the cheese melt (about 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add sea salt, pepper, and oregano to taste.

  3. To prepare your omelet, heat a green non-stick pan on medium heat.  For each omelet add 1/3 Cup of your batter to your pan and let cook for about 5-7 minutes, until you can easily flip the edges up and is golden.  Carefully flip your omelet and cook for another 2-3 minutes.  As your omelet are prepared place them on  a baking sheet. When ready to eat, heat your oven to 200 degrees and pop them in for about 5 minutes to warm.    P1110198s P1110200s

    Yum, I’ve never seen them done like that before. The vegan omelets I’ve tried have all been with chickpea flour. I’ll have to try them this way too!

      All I’ve saw was chickpea, too! I’m allergic to them (extremely sad face!) so I had to devise a different recipe. I absolutely LOVE these! ☺️
