SusanV's omelette for one

I tried to make this recipe with one big change--I made it a vegan omelette for two. I followed the recipe exactly, which is a rare thing in our household. I put it in the pan, waited and waited for it to cook, but it just wasn't working. When I tried to peek under the edges to see if it was cooking, it ripped. In one spot, it was starting to burn. So Andy poured the other half of the batter into the pan and we turned it into scrambled eggs instead. But, because it was so liquidy and cornstarchy, it was still fairly gooey even when it was fully cooked. Here it is, my disaster of a vegan omelette for two, with mushrooms, red capsicum and tomato.

It's obviously not the recipe, because it worked for Susan and a few other bloggers, but maybe turning it into a vegan omelette for two fundamentally changed it or something. That's all I can think of, anyways...

Awwww I hate it when things don't turn out, especially things you think you'll have no trouble with! For what it's worth it looks fine, very much like scrambled eggs on toast!

I second that; it LOOKS good!

Veg and Little V, it was very tasty. Her recipe was definitely worth it, even if I screwed it up somehow!

My omelette turned out ok, but I just wasn't a huge fan of the flavor. Try as I might, soy-flavored food just tastes bad to me. Hope you have better luck next time!

It's too bad the omelette didn't work out. At least you were creative and turned it into "scrambled eggs" - they look good!

That looks hearty and creamy and just plain YUM.

hey, as long as it tastes good, that's all that matters!! I have to admit, I haven't been crazy about some of Susan's "eggy" recipes (the omelette, the mini quiches, etc.), so no worries on it not turning out how you'd like it to.

even that the omelette didn't work out, looks good and yummy.
