SUBSTITUTIONS

  • You can substitute the mushrooms with any other vegetable.
  • Chickpeas are optional (but recommended) for this recipe. You can either not use any chickpeas, or substitute with any other bean or peas such as green peas.
  • I wouldn’t recommend substituting the tomato as it helps to make the ‘omelette’ airy and fluffy

  • You can substitute the spices to your liking and preferences. If you are used to eating spicy food, feel free to use slightly more than the recommended amount. 

PRO TIP

Depending if you are using induction or gas for cooking the Chickpea ‘Omelette’, it can happen that your ‘omelette’ will not be properly cooked from inside when you fold it in half. In that case, you can oven bake or air fry the ‘omelette’ to make sure it is cooked from inside.
