Chickpea Omelette Sandwich
One-bowl / one-pot
1 Tbsp (7 g)ground flaxseeds
3 Tbsp (45 mL)water
½ cup (58 g)
½ cup (120 mL)unsweetened soy milk
1 Tbsp (2 g)
¼ tsponion powder
¼ tspgarlic powder
¼ tspkala namak (optional)†
⅛ tspground black pepper
½red bell pepper, minced, divided
1small red onion, minced, divided
1 Tbsp (15 mL)olive oil, for frying
6slices whole wheat bread, toasted
3 Tbsp (45 mL)
1 cup (35 g)romaine lettuce
1medium tomato, thinly sliced
1avocado, thinly sliced
- In a large bowl, mix together the ground flaxseeds and water. Set aside for 5 minutes to gel.
- Then add the remaining omelette ingredients, but only add half of the bell pepper and onion. Reserve the other half for later. Mix well.
- Add some oil to a large pan over medium-high heat. Add two tablespoons of the omelette mixture to the pan per omelette.
- When golden on the bottom, flip the omelettes over and cook on the other side. Repeat this process until all the batter is used up.
- Lather some mayo on each slice of bread. Top with the omelette and veggies, including the remaining raw bell pepper and onions. Enjoy!
- †Kala namak, also known as Himalayan black salt, is a salt often used in South Asian cuisine. The sulphur compounds give the salt an egg-like smell and flavour, which makes it perfect to use in an omelette like this one.
- The omelette can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

I just made these and I cannot believe how delicious they are! They seem more like a fritter or a veggie pancake but I don't care what they're called. They're going in my fave recipe rotation. Even my carnivore sister would like them. A lot! Also made your spicy vegan chipotle Fajitas. A big hit for my delayed Cinco de Mayo dinner. Enjoyed by my carnivore sis and pescaterian mom. Thank you for creating and posting your awesome dishes!
These little omelets are so cute and so easy to flip! They came out perfect! I Aldo used all the suggested toppings, including the optional ones and I'm literally obsessed 😍
Since I didn’t have all of the ingredients to make the full sandwich, we made the chickpea omelette portion of this recipe. We were pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to make & also the delicious taste! We served it with sautéed spinach & spicy black beans on the side. We will be making this often!
Absolutely delicious and SO easy to make! I usually make the omelette "patties" and put them on avocado toast and it's just delicious! PUL you never fail :D
Lovely breakfast and daughter who hates eggs loved this alternative! I usually add various Indian spices such as turmeric, dried fenugreek leaves (methi), cumin, coriander and a touch of garam masala too if we’re in spicy mood.
Loved it! Usually working with chickpea flour gives me a headache cos it takes so long to cook properly. But this recipe worked like a charm! I made wraps out of it instead of sandwich and had breakfast for dinner. Thanks for this great recipe 😊
Hi PUL team,
Can you tell me where to get GF nutritional yeast in the Netherlands? So far I've only found nutritional yeast that contains wheat and/or other gluten full ingredients.
This is such a delicious recipe! I followed it step-by-step scaled down to one sandwich and it came out lovely. Unfortunately, my bread was no longer good to use when I came to assemble so I just used the chickpea omelette as a base and topped it with all the goodies.
Super yummy and only took about 10 mins. Now I've done it once, I can definitely do it again quicker. Thank you!
So good! We made ist 3 Times already 😋
Enjoyed this video! Looking forward to trying it. Love the look of the bread - so healthy and dense. What type of bread is this? Would love to try searching for it.
so yummy and filling! i'm not vegan but this was delicious!
This was amazing! It reminded me exactly of these Asian panfried omelettes. I did 1/4 red onion (that's all I had left) and did some green scallions, so mine were quite colorful at the end. I'm so glad I finally caved and bought some kala namak. I can't wait to make this on a regular basis! Thank you!
Will this recipe come out ok if I use homemade almond milk
The omelets look amazing, Sadia! What brand of nutritional yeast are you using in this recipe? It looks quite different from the Braggs I normally use in both color and texture. Honestly I don't love nooch, but so many vegan recipes call for it! I'm looking for one that I like better--or are they all the same??
Great recipe!! We loved the flavor... It tastes like eggs!!!
This sandwich is marvelous! I had to eat two, :)
It's really fast, cheap, tasty and satisfying. Great combination of ingredients but I will try with a wrap version too.
Thanks so much for your great videos!
This was quick to whip up and very tasty! I have been on the lookout for more savoury breakfasts and have tried your tofu scramble and now this. I just made the stand alone omelettes and topped them with mango chutney and guacamole. Please post more similar styled breakfast recipes :) (and happy 5th anniversary!)
Amazing recipe! I used to love omelette before going vegan, this recipe is hands down the best one! Better than the real thing if you ask me!
I just made these today and they're great! Since going vegan I'm struggeling with quick and tasty lunch meals, so I'm happy I found this one. Definitely a keeper, thanks! I can also recommend BLT with Tempeh, it's awesome!
I had the perfect breakfast, thank you for the recipe.
I love how quick and easy this recipe is!
It made a perfect and fulfilling breakfast.
It even got a "delicious" from my dad who doesn't really like vegan meals.
I've made these several times and they're always SO good and so easy!!!
Love this recipe! And I don't even have kala namak. 😅 I also use green bell pepper and coconut milk because it's what I have. Thanks for sharing this recipe with all of us! My dad really likes this too.
This recipe looks delicious. I am trying out alternatives to tofu scramble just to mix things up. If I was going to make an omelette with this and not a sandwich what adjustments would you recommend? Thank you. I love your channel.
Thank you once again for this link. I finally made an omelette after 5 years and this is officially my first vegan omelette. I used yellow bell peppers, leeks instead of onion and I also added tomatoes cut in small cube as I usually did before I became vegetarian. The smell came very close to the omelette I used to make but without the nastiness of the egg smell. Very yummy and feeling to just eat it as it is but with vegan spicy thousand island sauce.
If you have any recipe for vegan scamble eggs, please do let me know.
Love it ! The kala namak salt is optional but please don't do it without. It's the best !
This is one of my favorite recipes, I like to make it when we go hiking, it's so filling and rewarding.
I make this recipe about five times every month. It’s my go-to to impress my friends and family when they’re over for breakfast. They aren’t vegan but they absolutely love this (they even asked for the recipe 🥰).
This is so yummy!
This is my third time making this quick and simple recipe and it gets better every time! No more missing the taste of eggs, as the chickpea omelettes are so savory and fluffy. This will definitely be in my weeknight rotation in the fall when I go back to school again! :)
Very impressed! I've always been a bit skeptical about chickpea omelets, but this is definitely a winner! Fantastic as a sandwich or on its own, this is now my favorite omelet recipe. Thank you!!
Tried this recipe minus the bread and the omelets were delicious and filling on their own!! Love this recipe, will be a new go-to for me.
When I'm down for a savory breakfast, this is my go-to!
This recipe introduced me to chickpea flour and now I can't get enough!
OMG this is so tasty! My new favourite!
Just as a tip for those who like the eggy taste of kala namak: it loses some flavour when heated. So I sprinkled it over the slightly cool and ready omelette or directly on the bread.
Absolutely loved this sandwich!! This is my new go to for breakfast over the weekend. It’s definitely power packed and loved how it fits the plate method. Definitely recommend!!
Every time I make this sandwich for my friends they really enjoy it: “That was one of the best sandwiches I’ve ever had.” Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge and recipes!
I made these omelettes today and I added tofu, tomatoes, lettuce and parsley to the toast! It was devine! It's one of those recipes that proves that you don't have to "renounce" anything to be vegan! Best part? You make them once and have breakfast for several days!
We just made these omelettes for an indulgent breakfast and they were absolutely delicious! Our only challenge was to keep them together (they got stuck to our pans, we tried ceramic and cast iron), but regardless of their looks they tasted wonderful and we will be making them again! Any tips on how to prevent them from sticking to the pan would be most welcome. Thank you for another wonderful recipe!
Could we use besan , which is Channa dal flour instead of chickpea flour!
