Vegan Chickpea Scramble – Gluten Free & Soya Free | Recipe

Move over tofu scramble, there’s a new scramble alternative in town, and it’s vegan, gluten free and soya free! I woke up one morning really craving an ‘eggy’ breakfast dish but all I had in the cupboard were chickpeas. I decided to give it a go and it worked amazingly, so I’m sharing it for you all to enjoy. It’s super easy, quick and only uses a few cupboard staples, so let’s get cooking.

The recipe below makes one rather hearty portion, enjoy!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 tin of chickpeas & the chickpea water
  • 1 tsp tumeric
  • 1/2 tsp black salt (for the eggy taste – it would still be tasty without this if you don’t have it to hand)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic granules
  • Pinch or two of paprika & cumin
  • Half an onion
  • Spoonful of dairy free butter / margarine

METHOD:

  1. Open your can of chickpeas and keep the chickpea water to the side. Mash the chickpeas in a bowl
  2. In a separate bowl, mix all of the spices & pour in a little bit of chickpea water to make a ‘paste’
  3. Transfer the spice mix into the chickpeas and mix until evenly covered. Add a little more water here if you think it is too dry, but you don’t want it soaking either! I find it easier to mash the chickpeas some more at this point too
  4. Whilst your chickpea mixture marinades, chop your onion and fry in a pan until translucent
  5. Once the onions are cooked, add your chickpea mixture to the pan along with a tsp or so of butter*
  6. Cook through and stir often until piping hot
  7. Serve & enjoy!

    *At this point you can also add any extra veggies that you fancy – I added some mushrooms but peppers, spinach or tomatoes would also make a great addition.

As always, let me know if you make this! Really hope you love it as much as I do x

Marmite Brownie Bites | Recipe

Marmite brownies with caramel sauce being poured on top

Love it or hate it, these chocolatey, gooey marmite brownies complete with marmite caramel sauce will be your new favourite! I know it sounds weird but hear me out – the sweetness of the chocolate & banana balances so well with the salty marmite kick. These simple brownies are not only easy to make but full of healthy ingredients too! Plus they’d be a great conversation starter at your next dinner party.

The recipe below makes six brownie bites. There are no exact measurements for the caramel sauce as you can add as little or as much as you like depending on your taste and how thick you would like it to be.


MARMITE BROWNIE BITES:

  • 1/3 cup or 80ml cashew butter
  • 1/4 cup or 60ml cocoa powder
  • 2 medium bananas
  • 1 tsp marmite
  1. Mash the bananas in a bowl
  2. Add in the cocoa powder, cashew butter and marmite and stir until all mixed into gooey but smooth consistency
  3. Transfer mixture to baking tray and cook on gas mark 4 for at least 20 minutes / until the skewer comes out clean
  4. Leave to cool before cutting into six


MARMITE CARAMEL SAUCE:

  • Coconut oil
  • Syrup (maple, sweet freedom, golden etc)
  • Cashew butter
  • Marmite to taste
  1. Melt the coconut oil and syrup together in the microwave until liquid
  2. Whisk in the cashew butter to your desired consistency (more for a thicker sauce)
  3. Add in your preferred amount of marmite. Taste as you add so you don’t add too much and lose the caramel taste
  4. Pour over your cooled brownie bites and enjoy

Let me know if you make these! Would love to know what you think. x
