Hello and Happy Friday!
I hope you are all looking forward to the weekend and have some fun stuff planned? I know I have, tonight I am off out to meet some friends for a kind of reunion get together, tomorrow I am working at the shop then off out for another party in the evening......its about time I spread my social butterfly wings its been a while!
Todays post is all about my new food addiction gram flour omelettes! If you follow my Instagram feed you will have seen these popping up quite regularly and this is why.....they are filling, delicious and bloody easy to make! Very much like a socca but with egg added to make a gram flour omelette. I love socca's but I find adding in an egg fluffs up the mix and makes it more filling.
Its actually really nice to be eating gram flour as I have had some issues with pulses but the flour seems to be fine so I am going to start introducing them slowly and hope I can include them in my diet now and again as I love them!
For my gram flour omelettes I use the same base every time but change the flavour ingredients to mix things up and keep them tasting different heres the basic mix:
1/4 cup Gram Flour
1/4 cup + 3Tbsp Water
Salt and Pepper
Sieve the gram flour into a mixing bowl then add the egg and water, whisk. Add in the salt and pepper and whisk again at this point you can also whisk in any other spices you want to use as flavour.
Here are four different variations of my current food addiction......
Red Onion and Garlic
Make the basic gram flour omelette and set aside. In a small frying pan melt some coconut oil then add a small red onion finely diced and 2 crushed garlic cloves. Cook the garlic and onions on a low heat, once the onions are soft pour your omelette batter in the pan and cook for about 1-3 minutes before turning. Flip the omelette when the top side becomes firm and starts to bubble and cook for a further 1-2 minutes. I served this with steamed broccoli mixed with zest pesto.....delsih!
Courgette and Turmeric
Make the basic omelette mix with some added turmeric and garlic powder (about 1tsp of each) and set aside. In a frying pan melt some coconut oil and add a small finely diced courgette, once it starts to brown add the omelette mix and cook as above. I added some tomato ketchup to this bad boy too!
I fancied something quite plain so this was literally just the basic mix and sliced mushrooms cooked in coconut oil.
Mushroom and Coriander
The only difference with this one was I added some garlic and dried coriander powder into the basic mix then added it to the mushrooms wince they were cooked. I also had some broccoli on the side to bump up the volume.
So as you can see these are super easy to make, healthy and a great option if you are short onetime but fancy something hot to eat. If there is more then one person eating you just double, triple the recipe for however many people that want in! I would definitely recommend sieving the flour too as it makes a much smoother batter.
Right thats me done for today I have some client sessions to plan, here's wishing you all a fabulous weekend come rain or shine! One last thing if your gluten intolerant, have coeliacs or are interested in alternative gluten free products tune in next week as its Coeliacs awareness week and I will be sharing lots of products and info all about it!
