Feature Recipe | Garden Style Chickpea Omelette with Creamy Dipping Sauce
Yields two 10-inch omelettes
A savoury chickpea omelette – not too fluffy, not too dense – packed with freshly chopped herbs and veggies and featuring a crispy, golden exterior. Paired with a creamy, savoury dipping sauce, this egg-free omelette is elevated from deliciousness to showstopper!
You could switch up the variety of herbs and veggies used (depending on what’s in your crisper) but I would definitely recommend a medley that includes a few crunch-happy vegetables — such as radishes and carrots — to elevate the texture. The omelette is delicious on its own but if you’re looking to add a savoury dimension to this dish you’ll want to whip up a batch of Creamy Dipping Sauce. In fact, I almost called this “everything” sauce because it’s so delicious you may just want to slather it on a burger or using it as your next veggie platter dip.

1/Add glug of olive oil to a skillet on medium-low heat. Pour half the batter in the skillet (to cover entire surface) and cook until bubbles form (similar to a pancake). Flip over and cook until golden.
*Be sure to lift up the edges of omelette within the first few minutes of cooking to prevent the batter from sticking to the pan.
*Cut the omelette into quarters (before flipping to cook the reverse side) to ensure it doesn’t break/crumble.
2/Repeat with remaining batter to yield second omelette.
