Chickpea Breakfast Sandwich

Chickpeas are one of the most versatile vegan foods out there. It’s a perfect way to add protein to breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even snacks. I really miss my mom’s signature egg sandwiches, but by substituting the egg with mashed chickpeas, I’m still able to get everything I want.
