This is one of those recipes that got me really excited when I first heard about it!
Being that I’m a bit of a lazy breakfast maker and usually head for the toaster or a bowl of porridge this recipe was a real find, we make this up for breakfast at least a couple of times a week it’s just so easy to whip up.
This scramble is packed with protein and a great alternative to tofu scrambled eggs plus it’s cheaper than cheap I’m talking about 25p a wrap!
We rock this bad boy out usually in the form of a breakfast wrap with fried onions, mushrooms, lettuce, tomatoes, egg free mayo and some hot sauce. Delicious!
This chickpea powered extravaganza is going to power you up for hours, the ingredients are chickpea flour (protein), nutrition yeast for that lovely cheesy savoury flavour (b-vits), black salt (eggyness) which you’ll find it in your local Asian food store, ground flax seed (to bind) and turmeric because it’s golden and lovely and very very good for you.
So there you go!
If you fancy going all out and cooking up a full on fry up take a look at my magic mock meat mix to make up some sausages or patties to go with your hash browns, toms, beans and scramble.
SCRAMBLED CHICKPEA WRAP
- ½ cup chickpea flour
- ½ cup water
- ½ tsp turmeric
- ½ tsp black salt (for that eggy flavour and smell)
- 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 2 tbsp ground flax seed
- small ½ tsp cajun powder
- salt and papper to taste
- Chopped tomatoe
- Shredded lettuce
- Wraps (gluten free)
- Whisk the chickpea flour, water, flaxseed, nutritional yeast, black salt, cajun powder and turmeric together in a small bowl and leave to sit for 15mins to an hour.
- Meanwhile chop the onion, mushroom and pepper.
- After the batter has sat for at least 15mins heat 2 tbsp of oil in a large skillet or frying pan and cook the onion for 2mins.
- Add the mushroom and pepper and cook for 1-2mins.
- Add another tbsp of oil to the pan and give the batter a quick whisk.
- Pour the batter into the pan and tip the pan side to side so the batter fills the bottom as evenly as possible, leave for 1min.
- Start to break up the batter into small pieces, mixing and breaking it up as you go, don't worry if the batter seems gloopy it will dry as you break it up and mix.
- Keep breaking it up and mix until the batter has dried up and is starting to look like scramble egg, usually 3-4mins.
