In order to make this vegan omelet you will need to gather the following items:
How to Make a Vegan Omelet
The simple steps to take to create the perfect plant based omelet are:
- Sauté veggies.
- Pour in the vegan egg, allow it to firm up then flip. Add the veggies, cheese, and protein.
- Slide onto a plate, fold it over, and serve!
Mix things up and try a variety of flavors! Any veggies that you love are great to add, as well as a variety of plant based cheeses and proteins. Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Cherry tomatoes
- Artichoke hearts
- Sun dried tomatoes
- Fresh herbs
- Avocado (add when serving)
- Vegan Sausage
- Mushroom Bacon
- Vegan Feta Cheese
- Dairy Free Ricotta
This omelet is filling enough all on its own. However you can serve it with a few other items to make a big breakfast or brunch spread. The following dishes would go well:
- Toast with Chia Seed Jam
- Bagel with Vegan Cream Cheese
- Vegan Yogurt
- Homemade Hash Browns
- Spinach Banana Smoothie
- Easy French Toast Sticks
- Banana Oat Blender Muffins
- Apple Cinnamon Scones

Tips and Tricks
Here are a few ways you can achieve the perfect vegan omelet:
- Depending on the egg you are using you may not need any additional salt and pepper.
- When sautéing add the greens last since they don’t take as long to cook.
- Some vegetables release moisture when they are cooked. Make sure to sauté them until the moisture is gone, or simply drain it from the pan.
- Dairy free cheese takes longer to melt, So once the veggies are cooked mix in the cheese to allow it to start to melt while you are making the eggs.
- If you haven’t mastered flipping the egg yet, you can slide it onto a plate then return it to the pan upside down.
- Prep ahead my cooking up your veggies. Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. When you’re ready to make the omelet just reheat them in the pan real quick then follow the rest of the directions.
A vegan omelet is a dish made with a plant based egg substitute cooked into a disc, loaded with fillings, then folded over into a half circle then served.
You can make vegan egg with chickpea flour, tofu, store bought vegan egg.
All standard omelettes consist of eggs. However, there are many egg alternatives available to make vegan omelettes.

The Best Vegan Omelet Recipe
- ½ cup vegan egg , either chickpea flour recipe or store bought vegan egg
- ½ cup veggies of choice , I used mushrooms, onions, cherry tomatoes, peppers, and spinach.
- ¼ cup dairy free cheese of choice
- ¼ cup protein of choice , I used my vegan bacon (optional)
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt , may not need if egg choice has plenty of flavor
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper , may not need if egg choice has plenty of flavor
- Sliced green onions , optional for garnish
- In a small omelet pan (6 or 8 inches), saute veggies with drizzle of oil, or broth, and salt and pepper if using. I add the greens last. Add the protein here if it needs to be cooked. Set aside. A trick I use is to add the cheese here. Dairy free cheese tends to take longer to melt so if you warm it with the cooked veggies it will melt better.
- Using the same pan, pour the vegan egg in (put oil in first if using) and cook over medium low heat.
- Allow it to firm up a bit then flip carefully. See note for a trick I use.
- Once you see them firm up, add the cooked veggies, cheese and protein to one half of the egg.
- Cook until you see the cheese melting and you look under the egg and see it brown.
- Slide onto a plate and fold the empty side over to serve!
- Use any veggies you love, just be mindful of the ones that will give a watery result, and saute those well.
- A tip to flip the egg over if you are having trouble, you can slide it onto a plate and then slide it back into the pan on the other side.
- This makes one omelet enough for two people as it is pretty stuffed!
- Nutrition facts do not include protein.
