I adapted my version slightly from Hummusapien’s version, making it my own. It’s an awesome blog and I look forward to trying more of the great recipes on it too.
I got some chickpea flour recently and made a falafel dish with it. The chickpea flour is made from ground-up chickpeas and has protein and fiber in it.
These came out so well and are so easy to make. Not only are you getting fiber from the chickpea flour but also protein. If you like the flavor of hummus you’ll like these.
After you get the chickpea cakes done, top with scrambled eggs or in my case I took the equivalent of two eggs which is one half cup egg substitute and scrambled it in a Gotham steel pan with no fat added to the pan – because you can do that with a Gotham steel pan!
I added some mrs. Dash Southwest chipotle seasoning to the eggs, and it gave them a nice flavor.
You can vary it any way you like to make it your own.
I topped mine with great value Peach Chipotle salsa.
1/3 cup chickpea flour
1/3 cup water or vegetable stock and the seasonings of your choice.
A touch of Chef Merito’s Garlic Powder or a little minced garlic.
I have bad habit of not eating breakfast and these are awesome and because of the high fiber, high-protein easy as can be to make and vegetarian, it’s a super triple win recipe.
Chickpea flour really isn’t flour at all in the sense of being a grain, but ground up chickpeas. So, you’re getting all the nutrition and flavor from the chickpea, including keeping your hunger pangs down.
A Chef’s Cap off to Hummusapien.com, and this great recipe I found by searching high fiber breakfast ideas using Google Voice Search on my Galaxy Note 4.
Ain’t technology great!

This is a stellar example of when vegetarian shines like the most brilliant star in the night sky. the key that makes this extraordinary is great ingredients period when you’re using only the most fresh and highest quality ingredients, the dish will shine with very little work from you.
All you will need are the best, freshest ciabatta rolls you can find. Walmart buy me actually make some phenomenal ones that are better than some I’ve had it Italian delis.
The biggest, most juicy, ripe tomatoes you can find
Pesto sauce, homemade or bought
Fresh basil leaves
To assemble all you do is just spread some of the pesto sauce on the ciabatta bread. Slice the tomatoes thinly and top with tomato slice, fresh mozzarella slice and fresh basil and a little bit drizzle of Pesto, garnishing with fresh basil leaves.
Leftover Vegetarian Stir Fry Vegetable’s or you can simply make your own with in season vegetables in your area.
Cook some Chinese wheat noodles about 6 or 7 minutes in a large 4 quart wok with plenty of water until tender.
Once the noodles are cooked, drain them and add them to a large 4 quart platter or bowl, then add in your 3 cups of stir fry….whatever you like…about 50/50 ratio of noodles to veggie mix.
Drizzle with a little sesame oil and low sodium teriyaki sauce or hoisin. You can add some roasted garlic cloves, if you have them on hand, which I usually do because they infuse so much flavor to dishes and sauces.
Top with shredded fried wontons.
I found mine in the salad section where they sell dressing and croutons.

Note: the noodles are cooked for this dish where in the international section of the store labeled “Chinese Chow Mein” noodles. Mine were made in Los Angeles, California, where they make lots of international ingredients. These are not fried Chow Mein noodles that you buy in a can! These are wheat noodles that are very long and cooked just like pasta from Italy, but they’re not. If for some reason they don’t carry the long thin chow mein and your area, you can find them at Cost Plus World Market Kama which is one of my most favorite stores in the world!
