Sprout Leaf Chickpea Scramble


After Amanda's bachelorette party a few weeks ago, I decided it would be the smart thing to do to spend the night with Devon and relax before I had to go home.  So, I took Monday off work and relaxed at her house in Northwest Arkansas when we got back from Tulsa.  She works at home, and had to work Monday, so when I woke up, I went into her kitchen and decided to make her breakfast.  The first thing I noticed were the many cans of chickpeas in the pantry.  I knew I could make something great!

I started thinking about the chickpea scramble that my mom made the last time I was home, which was  inspired by this one from Vegetarian Times.  I also noticed a HUGE bag of Brussels sprouts in the fridge, so I knew I was set!




Sprout Leaf Chickpea Scramble


  • 2 cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 small yellow onions
  • 1 large green bell pepper
  • 1 1/2 cup brussels sprout leaves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp tumeric
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • sriracha and avocado to top
  • wraps for rolling, or eat plain

  1. Chop the onions and bell pepper into small pieces.
  2. To get the Brussels sprout leaves, cut the ends off and peel the leaves off.  You can use the very small inside, or discard.
  3. In a large sauce pan, heat on medium/high.  Add olive oil.
  4. Add in onions and bell pepper and saute for 8 minutes.
  5. Add in sprout leaves and cook for another 5 minutes.
  6. Add in drained chickpeas and spices.
  7. Cook down for 15 minutes.  
  8. Add in a few tsp of water if chickpeas are crisping up too much.
  9. Once everything has had time to cook, smash down about half the chickpeas.
  10. Serve wrapped up in a tortilla or by itself.






Devon didn't have a potato masher, but I made due with a large slotted spoon.  She was excited when I presented her with this amazing scramble!




This makes a great, filling breakfast, but it would be good for lunch and dinner as well.


So remember, if you don't have tofu on hand for a great scramble, reach for those chickpeas!

  1. Yum! I first tried chickpea scramble after reading about it in Isa Does It. I hadn't even thought of that before, but it's sooooo good.
