Whether you are tired of your morning tofu scramble, looking for something different for breakfast, or are allergic to soy, this Spicy Chickpea Scramble is a great alternative!
It is one of those meals that you can whip up in a hurry. You can include an array of different vegetables and greens. You can also season it with all your favorite herbs and spices. It is one of those meals that you know will work out every time, because it is so simple to make.
Now enter the chickpea scramble. For those of you who want a change from your tofu scramble, or if you're allergic to soy, this is a great alternative.
For this Spicy Chickpea Scramble, I used one of my favorite spices - sriracha powder. You could also use sriracha sauce, but I have noticed a slight difference in flavor.
The powder carries the heat without the added vinegar taste. Also, sriracha powder packs in a lot of heat in a small quantity. If you haven't added sriracha powder to your pantry yet, I highly recommend it. There are times when sriracha sauce just won't work as well in a recipe.
One of my favorite go-to meals using sriracha powder is fried squash. (I probably should have named it Spicy Fried Squash, but oh well. Live and learn.)Whether you are tired of your morning tofu scramble, looking for something different for breakfast, or are allergic to soy, this Spicy Chickpea Scramble is a great alternative!
