Not only is this recipe quick, but it’s also super nutritious! Chickpeas are a great source of protein, fiber, potassium, and iron. They support weight loss, protect against heart disease, and improve gut health. This is a delicious egg substitute that has a similar consistency and great taste that will keep you satisfied all morning.
