Apart from a big bowl of fruit I love a savoury breakfast. There are many savoury plant based breakfast options with mushrooms, spinach, tomato, asparagus, peppers, potato and kale all on my best of list. Although all these veggies are great for you and full of nutrition an added boost of protein from a bean or legume source can be great to include. 

This “omelette” is probably like no other you have ever tried… because this one is made from chickpeas and not eggs!
