Veganism is my Passion! I always have seen eating a Plant Based Diet as an Adventure, I've never seen it as a Challenge.. I feel like I was Born to be a Herbivore..
Over the past (almost 24) years of not including animal products In my Diet and Lifestyle I've heard the Question ..."What do you eat if you don't eat Meat?" more times than I can count...
To me it was not really a question of what I'm Excluding from my diet, but more a question of -WHAT NEW EXCITING PLANT CAN I TRY TODAY...
Luckily as a Couple, Bronson and I have Very adventurous Pallets.. and we love to try new and exciting ways to prepare food.
We were lucky enough to get a young Moringa Tree or Moringa Oleifera from dear friends of ours, I planted it out and within a few months it had grown to about 2 meters high.
As many of you may know already, the Moringa has Many Health benifits- so I wanted to incorporate the fresh leaves into our food... What a Joy to eat! It's Slightly Peppery and has a lovely chewy texture.
So our Chickpea Omelettes with stir-fried Tomato and Moringa leaves was invented!
Chickpea Omelettes with Stir-Fried Tomato and Moringa leaves. (Serves 2)
4 level TBS Chickpea Flour (if you cant buy, just blitz dried Chickpeas in a spice grinder)
Salt,Pepper, Vegan Stock powder -to taste
About 1cup water
Put Chickpea flour and spices in a Mixing bowl
add enough water to it and whisk until it forms a Pancake like Batter
1 small Onion
2 cloves Garlic
2 cups Fresh Moringa Leaves (washed)
1 large Fresh Tomato chopped
Salt,Pepper, spices to taste
Stir-fry the onions a bit, add Garlic and Moringa and Stir-fry till Moringa Leaves are wilted and the onions and garlic is nicely browned.
add the chopped tomato and salt and spices to taste and fry until the tomato is soft and the juices de-glaze the pan.
Set the Stir-Fried Veggies aside and warm a clean pan, add some oil to the pan when hot and pour enough Chickpea batter into the pan to form an Omelette.
fry until golden brown on one side, then carefully turn over to fry the other side.
Turn out your omelette and the fill with your stir-fried veggies and fold over.
Garnish with some thinly sliced spring onion greens and our Kick-Ass Wood Smoked Chilli sauce!
Play around with ingredients and create a method that works for you!
Have fun and Enjoy an adventurous and exciting Plant Based Diet!
Lots of Plant Love
