I recently heard of a product called Just Egg, and wanted to try making omelets with it. It took several attempts to figure out how to create an omelet with this bean-based liquid, which can be found in the egg-display case at Whole Foods. Below is the recipe.
Step 1. First grease a non-stick, 10-inch pan with olive oil.
Step 2. Set out the remaining ingredients:
- 1 slice of Violife Mature Cheddar [vegan] Cheese
- A handful of broccoli crowns
- A slice of red pepper
- 1/2 cup of Just Egg
Step 3. Slice the cheese into thin strips, and then cut the broccoli crowns and pepper slice into small pieces.
Step 4. Pour a half-cup of Just Egg onto the pre-greased pan.
Step 5. Next, set the burner to a medium-low temperature. (The highest heat setting on my stove is 10, and I set the burner to 3.)
Step 6. As the burner heats, add the chopped vegetables.
Step 7. When air bubbles can be seen in the Just Egg, reduce the heat (on my stove, I lower it to 2.4).
Step 8. Add strips of vegan cheese.
Step 9. Fluff the edges of the Just Egg with a flexible spatula. This makes it easier to roll the omelet.
Step 10. When one side is firm enough to gently lift, begin rolling the omelet from one side to the other.
Step 11. Finally, slide the omelet onto a plate…
Step 12. Add a bit of salsa for taste and color.
Like hash browns with your eggs, but don’t have time to prepare them? Have Cape Cod Kettle Cooked Chips instead.
So how does the Just Egg omelet compare to a chicken-egg omelet? In all honesty, I like the taste and texture of the Just Egg omelet better, and this is now a staple dish in my weekly diet.
