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.
