Vegan Chickpea Scramble

The other day a lady I work with had heated up a chickpea scramble for breakfast that she bought through an online vegan website. It looked so delicious and she indicated it was very filling. I was then on a search to find a recipe for this delicious breakfast dish. I found one online and altered it slightly and added my own twist to it:

1/2 yellow onion
1 tbl garlic
1 tbl vegan butter (I used Earth Balance whipped)
1 15oz can chickpeas
2 tbl nutritional yeast
1 tsp tabasco sauce
2 tbl reduced sodium tamari
1 pepper, chopped (color of your choice)
2 tomatoes, chopped

Place the butter, onions and garlic in a pan and saute until golden brown.

Place the chickpeas in a bowl and mash them up until mostly smooth. Then add the tamari, nutritional yeast, tabasco and mix together. Add your chopped peppers and chickpea mixture to the pan with the onions and garlic mixture and cook for several minutes.

Add chopped tomatoes and cook for another few minutes until all ingredients are hot. 

The best part about this dish is that it is perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner and is super filling and good for you!
