If you’ve seen Just Egg in the store, I bet you’re wondering can you make an omelette with Just Egg. I thought the same thing so I put it to the test! I love using this plant-based egg product to make traditional egg-based recipes vegan.

This vegan omelette is a great source of protein and adds even more nutrition when made with your favorite ingredients such as roasted vegetables.

You can serve this for a weekday breakfast or share it at your next plant-based brunch party!

Key Ingredients

  • Lemon — We’ll use both the zest and the juice of the lemon.
  • Oats — I used rolled oats for this recipe, but you can substitute instant oats.
  • Chia — We’ll add some ground chia seeds to create a thicker texture. You can use whole chia seeds; I just prefer ground because it creates a smoother finished texture.
  • Syrup — I used maple syrup, but you can substitute agave nectar.
  • Milk — We’ll use almond milk for the best overnight oats! Substitute your favorite plant-based milk.
  • Yogurt — I love adding some plant-based yogurt (plain, unsweetened) for an even more tangy flavor.
  • Protein Powder — I add some vanilla protein powder for increased flavor and nutrients. If your protein powder is not sweetened, you may want to add an extra teaspoon or two of sweetener.
  • Cornstarch — We’ll use cornstarch to thicken the lemon curd topping.
  • Turmeric — A pinch of turmeric makes that lemon curd sunny yellow.
  • Olive oil — I prefer to use olive oil, but you can substitute your favorite vegetable oil, like avocado oil, coconut oil, etc.
  • Just Egg — Just Egg is a plant-based egg substitute that delivers a similar texture and taste to traditional eggs. I love using it to make traditional egg-based recipes vegan. You can find it in major grocery store chains or health food stores
  • Flour — Use all-purpose flour, whole wheat pastry flour, or gluten-free baking flour.
  • Baking powder — We’ll add a bit of bakiong powder to make these omelettes light and fluffy.
  • Veggies — You can add chopped onion, chopped bell peppers, mushrooms, baby spinach, and more.
  • Cheese — Make your Just Egg omelette vegan by using vegan cheddar shreds.

Serving Suggestions

You can serve your plant-based omelette with any of the following:

  • Salad — Serving a salad such as vegan caesar salad or a vegan wedge salad on the side pairs perfectly with your omelet.
  • Potatoes — Make a dish of these crispy air fryer potatoes and have some ketchup and hot sauce on the side.
  • Tots — Keep it healthy with these baked cauliflower tots.

  • Add the remaining olive oil to the skillet and cook until shimmering. Pour the Just Egg mixture into the pan. Use a spatula to help guide the mixture to cover the bottom of the pan.
  • As the omelette begins to cook, the edges will start to turn golden. Use your spatula to run around the edge of the omelette to prevent it from sticking to the pan. Let it cook for up to 5 minutes until it solidifies. Use a spatula to flip the omelette.
