Chickpea ‘eggs’

  • 1 cup chickpea flour chickpea + fava flour also works
  • 1 scant cup water
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • pinch kala namak or vegan 'egg seasoning' for more eggy flavour, optional
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil

Sandwich assembly

  • 4 Silver Hills Bakery Bagels  or 8 slices Silver Hills Bakery Bread
  • 4 big handfuls baby spinach
  • 4 slices your fave vegan cheese
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • vegan mayo
  • hot sauce I like Valentina's here


  • Toast up your bagels or bread. Spread with mayo and set aside.
  • Whisk up chickpea flour, turmeric, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Add water and whisk until smooth.
  • Heat up large nonstick pan on medium heat with avocado oil. Pour ¼ cup of the chickpea mixture on pan, like a pancake. Repeat with remaining batter. Let cook for 2-3 minute, until firm enough to flip. We’re not looking for the egg to brown, you want to maintain a soft texture inside. Flip, add cheese and let cook for one to two minutes more. Place 'eggs' on the bagels. 
  • Add spinach to pan with a tablespoon of water and stir constantly until wilted, about a minute. Remove from heat and pile on bagels. Add sliced avocado and hot sauce to sandwiches and serve.


If making a single serving, use ¼ cup each of chickpea flour and water, 1/8 teaspoon each of turmeric, baking powder and salt. I’ll usually just wilt the greens in the same pan while I cook the chickpea egg to save a step.
