Easy Chickpea Omelette

Eggs – baked, boiled, fried – are the most popular breakfast choice. Except if you are vegan. But who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too? For those of you who are eating plant-based or are moving in that direction or are simply looking for a healthy alternative to eggs, this recipe is for you.
