Vegan breakfast Tempered ChickPeas

Here is a recipe for quick and easy breakfast. This tempered Chickpea(also called garbanzo -an annual legume ) is a healthy and protein-rich food for both adults and kids. When my kid doesn’t have a mood to have any other food, I cook this spiced chickpea and give it to her.  I am totally in love with this healthy and tasty breakfast. You may include this nutritious dish part of your snacks as well. It hardly takes 15 minutes to prepare. It tastes amazing. You may also serve with rice. You may mix with stir-fried veggies. Mixing with smoked bell pepper makes this dish highly nutritious and tasty.


One cup of cooked beans contains about 12 grams of fiber. Fiber is beneficial for your digestive tract, but it can also cause gas. Overnight soaking and adding the spices like cumin will help in reducing the gas. Cooked chickpeas are also rich in potassium.
