Recently, Allergy Little had to have a day off school because he had a cold. Obviously, I wasn’t pleased that he was ill, but it was nice to have my cooking wingman back for the day. It was like the beginnings of this blog when he was at home during the day while Allergy Big was at school. Enough reminiscing…
Allergy Little and I decided to try Terra Vegane’s Egg-free Omelette Mix, which we bought from The Veggie Stuff website. The ingredients of the mix are Potato Starch, Cassava Starch, Chick Pea Flour, Amaranth Flour, Sunflower Oil, Nutritional Yeast, Corn Starch, Baking Agent (Potassium-Tartrate, Sodium Bicarbonate), Turmeric, Kala-Namak Salt.
The mix is easy to prepare as you simply mix 4 tbsp of omelette mix with 4 tbsp. water. Allergy Little and I were very surprised by how eggy and sulphurous this smelt, as eggy as an egg mayonnaise sandwich left in a plastic lunchbox on a hot coach on a summer term school trip. Luckily, the smell quickly disappeared.
We cooked the omelette mix in a little olive oil, and used Vegamigo Pizza Melty vegan cheese as the filling. And what we ended up with was pretty impressive. It’s not exactly like a fluffy egg omelette, but nonetheless it tasted good and not at all like it had smelt on mixing. The texture is different too as the cassava flour makes it a little doughy. However, judged on its own merits, and not as a fake cheese omelette, it was very good.
