We are thrilled to participate in #brunchweek 2020 and contribute some vegan brunch favorites that are simple and delicious! I am sure you can find some “accidentally vegan” or easy-to-alter vegan brunches from the lovely ladies participating this week. Check them out at the end of this post!
This is a super easy vegan omelette that you can fill with whatever veggies you love. I like the combination of spinach, potato and vegan cheese sauce. The base of the vegan omelette has store bought vegan feta, which I think adds a great flavor and texture. I was never a huge egg-lover, so I never aim to get traditional egg dishes too close, so this may be a little bready if you are looking to really mimic an egg. I included the option to replace a 1/2 cup of water with aquafaba if you want a even bendier texture. If you are looking to be super quick, easy and delicious, this vegan omelette is great as-is!
