This single serve chickpea breakfast combines protein-packed chickpeas and eggs for a one-skillet, healthy breakfast recipe.
What's better than a ONE SKILLET chickpea breakfast? Nothing. I don't know a single person who enjoys doing the dishes, which is why one skillet meals are the best. This skillet breakfast also happens to be single serve, which I think is convenient if you live by yourself or if you and your significant other simply crave different foods for breakfast. Plus, you'll only have one skillet to wash once it's all done. Win!
This recipe was a result of me craving my crunchy spicy roasted chickpeas for breakfast. Random, but also so good.
CHICKPEA BREAKFAST INGREDIENTS
- spinach or some sort of greens
Since this is a single serve recipe, I opted to just use one egg, but you're more than welcome to add a second. Likewise, you can use any kind of greens in this recipe, but the goal is to add some sort of green vegetable to this skillet.
HOW TO MAKE THIS CHICKPEA BREAKFAST SKILLET
Step 1: cook the chickpeas and spinach with the seasoning and a little bit of olive oil in the skillet for 3 minutes or so. If you don't have spinach, you can use any sort of leafy greens (kale, collards, mixed greens, etc.).
Step 2: use a spatula to make a hole in the center of the skillet, then add the egg and cook it to your liking. This part takes anywhere from 3-5 minutes depending on how runny you want the yolk to be. Once the egg is done, sprinkle a little black pepper on top and enjoy!
This breakfast is single serve, meaning you can whip it up and then eat it with a fork straight from the pan if you’d like! Or, you can double the recipe and it’ll serve two people. It’s packed full of protein thanks to the chickpeas and egg, and potassium and iron thanks to the spinach. I used cajun seasoning to spice things up, but feel free to use your favorite seasoning or no seasoning at all—totally up to you.
The best part? It's a meal that can be made while running around the house getting ready in the mornings--my kind of

I made this recipe this morning & I loved it! Olive Oil, Chick Peas, Spinach, & An Over Easy Egg are all ingredients I love. I’ll be trying more of your recipes.
Thx for sharing!
Did you dry the chickpeas overnight or use them out of the can?
Nope! Just drain and rinse them, then they're ready to go.
Good to know, thanks! Can’t wait to make this tomorrow
