We are enjoying the bounty of all fresh veggies in this tasty chickpea vegan omelette, the recipe is great for Fall weekend brunches.

Ready in just 30 minutes, it’s an excellent way to use up leftover vegetables in the fridge. Onions, mushrooms, bell peppers, broccoli, and asparagus are particularly good in an omelette, but almost any leftover veggies will work well here. If you’re like us we get excited cleaning up the fridge on Friday night, taking those leftover veggies and give them a makeover.  You can make an omelette or even a buddha roasted veggies bowl so many options. Listed below is the recipe for the chickpea vegan omelette.
