Also, if you can find it, try acquiring some chickpea flour (besan flour). Bob's Red Mill company makes it so look for those, and many Whole Foods or healthfood stores also carry it. It is a savory eggy tasting flour that can be used to make chickpea flour omelets. Simply measure 1/2 cup of chickpea flour into a bowl. Add some spices like cumin, black pepper, garlic powder etc. Then add 1/2 cup of cold water and stir to make a pancake batter. Heat a nonstick skillet or add just a touch of oil, and spread your batter in a circular motion in the skillet like a pancake. As it cooks and bubbles, you can add vegetables like leafy greens, salsa, tomatoes etc and then fold the pancake in half over them. It takes me about ten minutes tops to make this. 1/2 cup of chickpea flour has about 8-10 grams of protein, is lower carb, and if you add stuff like nutritional yeast flakes to the batter, and leafy greens, you add more protein.
Scrambled chickpeas, cubed sweet potato, and chopped bell pepper and celery all scrambled in a skillet with veggie broth and spices makes a nice meal too.
