Ingredients

For the egg:

  • 1 cup (204 g) moong dal , split and skinned mung beans) sometimes labeled as petite yellow lentils
  • 1/4 test salt
  • 1 test kala namak or Indian sulfur salt
  • 1/4 test onion powder
  • 1/4 test garlic powder
  • 1/4 test black pepper
  • 1/2 test turmeric
  • 1 1/4 cup (295.74 ml) water or use 1/2 cup of light coconut milk + 1/2 of cup of water. Or use cashew milk (blend 3 tablespoons of cashews with 1 cup of water that will be your light cashew milk)

For the spinach and cheese filling:

  • 1/2 test oil
  • 6 ounces (170.1 g) of spinach frozen spinach thawed and squeezed a little bit
  • 1/2 test garlic powder
  • 1/2 test salt
  • 1/2 test pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/2-1 cup (56 g) of vegan cheese I like to use a mix of mozzarella and cheddar
  • bread slices

Instructions

  • Soak your moong dal overnight if you haven’t already. Drain and add to a blender. Add the rest of the ingredients with one cup of water and blend.

  • Blend for 15 seconds then wait for 15 seconds and blend again for 15 seconds. Repeat this three or four times and then check the consistency of the batter. You want it to be like a thin egg mixture.

  • If the batter is too thick, then your egg will be like pancakes so we need a thin batter. Add water 1-2 tablespoons at a time and blend again until you get a thin batter.Blend again for another 30 seconds and then set aside.

  • Make your spinach filling: Add 1/2 teaspoon of oil to a skillet then add the spinach, garlic, salt, pepper flakes, and bell pepper to the skillet and cook until the excess moisture of the spinach is gone and bell peppers are slightly cooked. 3-5 mins. Then take off heat and set aside.

  • Make the sandwich: Heat a good nonstick skillet over medium heat. Brush some oil over it.

  • Once the skillet is evenly hot, pour the batter about 1/2 cup to 2/3 cup of the batter, also it depends on the size of the skillet, so pour the batter in the middle of the skillet, and then move the skillet to move the batter to cover the rest of the skillet.

  • You want the size of your thin omelet to be the width of 2 bread slices.

  • Once it is spread, put two bread slices on the omelet. Cover and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the egg is fully cooked on the bottom. Then flip the omelet so that the bread slides are on the skillet. (You can butter the bread slices on that side before flipping for a golden grilled bread)

  • Now fold over the excess side of the omelet inwards and add your filling of choice. Most of the time I just add some vegan cheese and it turns out amazingly.

  • Add some of the spinach mixture and cheese on both sides and then fold over then press and cook until the cheese melts and sticks to the sandwich.

  • Take off heat and serve immediately. Serve with dressing or sauces of choice or some breakfast potatoes.

Notes

  • Storage : The batter can be stored for up to 5 days. Just put it in mason jar and put it in the fridge.
  • Don’t have Moong dal? Use split red lentils as a substitute.
  • Filling options: Use any other fillings of choice like vegan ham or other deli meat or bacon and some thinly sliced ​​vegetables.
  • Tips; You want to soak the moong dal for at least six hours.
  • You don’t want to do to overfill the sandwich because then the cheese won’t melt as vegan cheeses are usually temperamental.
