Greek Chickpeas on Toast
If you’re looking for a quick, easy and delicious plant-based breakfast idea, look no further than this Greek Chickpeas on Toast. It’s perfect if you’re on the go or if you’re just looking for a healthy alternative to a traditional bacon and eggs breakfast.
Chickpeas are a fabulous source of protein and some folks (like us) actually prefer them over beans.
They are a nutritional powerhouse providing you with healthy fats, vitamins and minerals.
Chickpeas are extremely versatile because you can easily blend them into anything from oatmeal or quinoa, to smoothies, enchiladas, burgers, tacos, you name it!
One of the staples in our diet is hummus — we put it on EVERYTHING!
Inspired by our travels to the Greek islands, chickpeas on toast is a savory alternative to more traditional breakfast options.
If you can, get your hands on some freshly baked sourdough bread and fresh herbs to make this healthy breakfast swap even more delicious!
We love to add a green salad as an extra layer of nutrition on our Greek Chickpeas on Toast because it helps round out the nutritional profile and gives us an extra boost of energizing greens to kickstart the day.
