Chickpea Scramble Breakfast Tacos (GF Vegan)

September 23, 2021
I have been playing around in the kitchen with chickpea flour for quite some time now, experimenting with the variety of ways that it can be used. It amazes me how versatile this flour can be and how many different meals can be made vegan by using it as a substitute. One of the easiest recipes to make is created by mixing equal parts water and flour with a bunch of spices and the result looks and tastes like a mock egg scramble.

Once you have your scramble made, you can utilize it however you would like. I chose to use mine as the base of some breakfast tacos. The scramble is super savory so I topped it with some fresh salsa to give it a burst of bright flavors. You can top your tacos with any add ins that you prefer.
