Vegan Omelette Pipérade

[Vegan Open-faced Omelette Garnished with Onions, Peppers, Tomatoes, and Ham]


I know I said a couple of Sundays ago when we made the Crêpes that we were out of Omelette recipes...but I was wrong...there was one more...and it is a fancy-schmancy-fill-you-up-hearty omelette for sure...

Julia says this is a Basque specialty and you'll need some Ham Seitan for it - I had some already sliced in the freezer...so that shortened our prep time considerably...


...First...you brown the 'ham' lightly in butter...

...and set aside...

...then in the same butter you browned the 'ham' in...cook some onions and peppers slowly without browning...

...season with salt and pepper...

...stir in some garlic and tomatoes...

...make your omelette... - remove it from the heat and spread your pipérade mixture over it...

...sprinkle the 'ham' over the top...and serve...

...I know that looks like wine in the glass but it's really cranberry juice...HA!

...so very hearty and good...

...we loved this omelette and will definitely be making it again...

Substitutions:
Earth Balance for Butter
Ham Seitan for the ham
Vegan Omelette for the omelette portion
