Dairy-Free Ratatouille Omelets
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Using a higher ratio of egg whites makes the omelet just a little fluffier and higher in protein. For even fluffier omelets, you can beat the egg whites separately and fold them into to the eggs.
Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: French
Serves: 4 omelets
  • 6 large egg whites
  • 5 large eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 cups ratatouille
  • ¼ cup crumbled or shredded dairy-free cheese alternative (optional; see post above)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg whites, eggs, salt, and pepper.
  2. If using leftover ratatouille, reheat it in a pan over medium heat for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until heated through.
  3. Preheat a small non-stick skillet over medium heat and grease it with oil or cooking spray. Add ½ cup egg mixture and cook for 1 minute, or until the eggs begin to set. Lift the edges of the omelet with rubber spatula as it cooks, allowing uncooked eggs to run underneath. Cook the omelet for 2 minutes, or until the eggs are set. Add ½ cup ratatouille and 1 tablespoon cheese alternative down the center of the omelet. Fold one side of the omelet towards the center, over the ratatouille, then tilt the pan to roll omelet, seam side down, onto plate. Repeat this step 3 times, greasing the pan between each omelet.
Omelet Tip: A quality nonstick skillet is the most important tool for making a great omelet. When cooking with a nonstick skillet, be sure to only use a rubber spatula or wooden spoon and always wipe it clean with a sponge or paper towel.
