Have you heard of aquafaba? If not, you need to know about it!
It’s the water in a can of chickpeas and it has an amazing, egg-like consistency. Because of its properties, aquafaba can be used for baking or even to make vegan meringues!
In today’s recipe, I’m going to share how you can use aquafaba and chickpeas as a plant-based substitute for an egg scramble. It’s delicious and easy.
Chelsea and I have been making this at home and our kids LOVE it! I am completely serious – they literally DEVOUR this recipe!
We make it as “breakfast for dinner” as well as brunch on the weekends. You can add any other veggie you like such as finely chopped broccoli or ribbons of kale. And you can top it with a cashew cheese or vegan cheese if you’re not on the 7-Day Alkaline Cleanse.
Have you used aquafaba? Give it a try and let me know what you think over on Facebook. Post your recipes, as we ate going to start a give-away contest for our favorite pictures and/or story’s…but you have to be IN it to WIN it!
CHICKPEA SCRAMBLE BREAKFAST BOWLS
Ingredients [Serves 4]

½ tsp. turmeric
½ tsp. sea salt (Himalayan, Celtic Grey, or Redmond Real Salt)
½ tsp. black pepper
½ medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp. cold pressed coconut oil
1 red or yellow pepper, diced
2-3 carrots, shredded using a peeler
Handful spinach, chopped
Handful parsley, cilantro, or chives, chopped fine
Directions: Mash chickpeas slightly with a fork, leaving some whole in their aquafaba liquid. Mix in turmeric, sea salt, and pepper until evenly combined. Set aside.
Heat a pan over medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil. First, sauté the onions until they are soft. Then add the garlic and continue sautéing. When onions and garlic are soft, add in peppers, carrots, and mashed chickpea mixture and sauté for about 5 minutes.

Kelly Ripa, who wrote the Foreword, had this to say:
“What I like most about Dr. Daryl’s method is that it’s not a ‘diet’ but more of a lifestyle change.
There’s no counting calories or limiting portion sizes, only a new awareness of ‘alkaline eating.’ Once you learn the difference between alkaline and acidic ingredients, you will know what to eat and will be able to benefit from keeping this balance in your bodies.
“Whether your goal is to lose weight, sleep deeper, feel more rested, think more clearly, or boost your energy, this plan will get you there…”
