Chickpea Egg Breakfast Sandwich

Chickpea “Egg” Breakfast Sandwich

Breakfast Sandwiches are such easy way to grab a healthy breakfast on the way out the door in the morning. These are a great thing to make up on the weekend while making chickpea quiche… just make an extra quiche to cut into sandwich sized slices.

These are simple to assemble. I often make them up on a Sunday afternoon with the leftover chickpea quiche I had earlier in the weekend.

I like to toast the English Muffins so that they are a little more hearty for sitting wrapped up in the fridge a few days. Sometimes I spread some nut cream cheese on the bottom piece of bread and sometimes I add a slice of cheese.

The chickpea quiche recipe is simple for making a whole pan of “eggs” but sometimes I will just make up a quick skillet chickpea egg as well and just toss in some chopped spinach, salt and pepper, and onion salt for extra flavor. I mix chickpea flour and water at a 1:1 ration when making up scrambled eggs on the fly. I just pop it into a counter top mixer like a vitamix or a magic bullet mixer to get the mixer nice and smooth before pouring into the skillet and frying up like I would a traditional scrambled egg. Have you tried this ?
