I love Jackie Sobon’s inspiring vegan recipes and gorgeous food photography, but mostly I like her habit of liking the stupid, often mean things I say on Twitter. No, that’s not fair, she’s a prolific food blogger over at Vegan Yack Attack, and a two-time cookbook author, with the release of her new book Vegan Yack Attack On the Go! just last week. So yeah, I like the food stuff about her the most, but the part where she encourages me to be rude on Twitter second.
This new book is a departure from her previous, Vegan Bowl Attack!, in its focus on make-ahead, and portable (think packed lunch or camping trip) recipes featuring short ingredient lists and quick prep times. The recipes are simple enough for someone new to cooking, but interesting enough that old school vegans will find plenty of inspiration, too.
I chose this Asparagus Omelet in a Bag recipe to share, because quick, healthy breakfast options tend to go the way of smoothies or overnight oats for vegans, and tofu scrambles get tiresome. You can actually throw the ingredients in a Mason jar and store it until you’re ready to cook – you can even put it in your camping cooler and be the fanciest vegan at the campground when you whip out some omelets for breakfast. Incidentally, if you’re looking for a camping cooler, Globo Surf has a comparison guide on their site that might help you out.
P.S. I’m giving away a copy of Vegan Yack Attack On the Go! Enter here!

Vegan Asparagus Omelet
By July 10, 2018Published:
- Yield: 4 Servings
I love Jackie Sobon's inspiring vegan recipes and gorgeous food photography, but mostly I like her habit of liking the stupid, often …
- 1 cup chickpea flour
- 3 Tbs nutritional yeast flakes
- 2 Tbs cornstarch
- 1 & 1/2 tsp Indian black salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1 & 3/4 cups vegetable broth
- 2 cups chopped asparagus woody ends trimmed
- 1 cup packed baby spinach or arugula
- 1/2 cup vegan Cheddar shreds (optional)
- 1/4 cup diced shallots
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the chickpea flour, nutritional yeast, cornstarch, Indian black salt, and
black pepper until combined.
- Pour vegetable broth into the flour and whisk until smooth, then divide the mixture between 4 sealable sandwich bags. (Alternatively, use Mason jars.)
- Next, place ½ cup (75 g) of asparagus, ¼ cup (10 g) of spinach, 2 tablespoons (15 g) of Cheddar shreds (if using), and 1 tablespoon (7 g) of shallots into each
bag. Store in the refrigerator or an iced cooler for up to 1 week, or move on to preparing it.
- When you are ready to prepare an omelet, warm a pan or well-seasoned cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Spray the pan with a thin layer of cooking oil.
- Once it is hot, shake the omelet bag vigorously. Pour the mixture into the pan and cook on one side for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the edges start to brown. Flip one half over onto the other half and cook for another 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining bags, when ready, and serve hot.

My favorite on-the-go vegan foods… I have a recipe for these apricot granola bars, but they take a long time to make so I savor them when I do. I love a good trail mix, some of Trader Joe’s fruit and nut discs, celery and hummus in a jar, fruit. Easy stuff!
Protein bars a là Clif or nut bars. Haven’t been cooking much so basically grab and go stuff.
This sounds amazing! One of my favorite on-the-go foods/snacks is jerky from Louisville Vegan Jerky.
I can’t wait to try this, just have to get some asparagus! I will always be a fan of throwing bananas, oranges, and trail mix into my bag for a quick on the go snack but if I have time, I make these yummy spinach “caesar” wraps with alfalfa sprouts!
I’ve been looking to add more vegan options to my lineup!! This omelet will be a stellar start.
I like to make a big batch of quinoa patties so I always have a few in the fridge for a sammie!
Love the idea of taking this recipe camping and can’t wait to check out the book! For premade on the go, I love the nugo slim vegan bars (mint or pb). Otherwise I go for make ahead meals that I can freeze…like veggie burgers and snobby Joe’s (ppk).
I usually throw together a hummus and veggie sandwich for on-the-go.
I am straight up cackling at the mention of my twitter behavior. This is the bestttttt <3
Weird–I love baked potatoes. Sweet, plain, purple, you name it. All colors. They are surprisingly delicious room temp or even cold. Good with hummus, salsa, mustard, plain. They’re great on a plane, no a car trip, etc.
I like to make a big batch of no-bake energy bites, and see how long they’ll last. 🙂
And, I love making little waffles (think Egg’o-sized). Not long ago I got a great deal on a Dash mini waffle-maker. I modified a recipe for pumpkin spice waffles, and use it all the time.
We frequently have energy balls available, but I’ve recently started cooking big batches of beans for the freezer, too. So easy to throw a meal together quickly!
I would say kale chips.
I find trail mix to be easy and yummy!
I’d say dried fruit and nuts. =)
