The Urban Dictionary defines nom nom as ”the sound made when someone is eating or chewing something and really enjoying it”. I call this dish Nom N’omelet because it will have you making just this sound. The title also fits because it’s no omelet as it doesn’t contain eggs but has the appearance and similar texture of an omelet. You can make it with vegetables or not and season any way you like, it’s up to you. Dress it up or down but either way it’s great for breakfast, lunch or dinner.



  • 1 cup garbanzo bean flour
  • 3/4 - 1 cup water
  • 6 tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 tsp sea salt, divided
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tsp rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, diced
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1/2 red pepper, diced


  1. In a medium sized bowl whisk together the garbanzo bean flour, 3/4 cup water, 4 tbsp oil, and 1/2 tsp sea salt. The batter should be rather thin so add a little more water if it appears too thick. Set aside.
  2. Heat the remaining oil in an 10 inch skillet (non-stick is best for this recipe) over medium high heat and add the onions, mushrooms and peppers. Add the remaining 1/2 tsp salt and sauté until tender about 4-5 minutes. Add the rosemary and thyme.
  3. Pour the batter into the skillet with the vegetables. Swirl it around to cover all around the bottom of the pan. Reduce heat to medium and cook until the edges start to brown.
  4. You can either flip the N’omelet over into another non stick skillet to cook the other side or cut it into 4 wedges and turn over each one individually in the same skillet.
  5. Cut into 4 wedges (if you haven’t already) and serve.

      Hey Samy, You can buy garbanzo bean flour in most stores. Bob’s Red Mill brand has one. The only thing is that it isn’t organic so I order organic garbanzo flour from Buffalo Valley Grains. I am currently addicted to this omelet. Lately I have been making it with roasted tomato, garlic and potatoes. I have it for breakfast and make in a single serving with 1/4 of the ingredients. Enjoy.
