Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. In a small mixing bowl, mix the vegan egg product with soy sauce and vegan fish sauce and mix. Add the green onions, dill, and black pepper and mix. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a medium-sized pan on medium-high heat until hot. Add the shallots and cook until translucent. Add garlic and cook for another 20–30 seconds until brown.
  3. Add tomatoes and cook for 2–3 minutes, until tomatoes are cooked.
  4. Pour in the omelette mix to form a circle over the sauteed vegetables. Change heat to low-medium. Allow to cook for 3–4 minutes or until firm.
  5. Flip over and cook for another 3–4 minutes. Flip to see if brown; if not, let it cook for another 1–2 minutes or until brown (if the other side needs to be cooked longer, flip and cook for a few more minutes).
  6. Remove from the pan and serve with sticky or steamed rice.
