I left the Dijon mustard, turmeric, and the lemon at G's, so I substituted Nathan's Original Coney Island Deli Style mustard as close enough, Jamaican curry powder (turmeric, foenugreek, coriander, cumin, anise, star anise, pepper, pimento, cloves, garlic), and a little bit of juice squeezed from both halves of a small grapefruit (which I subsequently ate with sugar).

Also, the tofu was 14 ounces not one pound, and I almost certainly used more than the listed measurements for everything else. The large roasted pepper was from a jar. Oh, and the thyme was fresh and cut up really small and cooked you didn't seem to get anything stuck in your teeth etc. The basil leaves I just rinsed thoroughly and tore some in half or thirds before mixing in.

It took me about an hour and a half of prep time, but that's me. A garlic mincer (or something that worked as one) saved me from probably another hour of chopping.

And it didn't stay together, but it was really good nonetheless.

RECIPE BY: Kozmic Blues

This is a delicious vegan version of the classic Italian omelette. The sundried tomatoes REALLY add a wonderful depth of flavor in this. Feel free to try different veggies in this too. Chopped broccoli, asparagus or spinach would be a nice substitute for the roasted peppers. NOTE: I have made this and skipped the broiling step. Just leave in the oven another 5-10 minutes to make sure it's firm.
