Feeling southwestern, but not a fan of meat? Then spice up your morning routine with tofu rancheros. Either serve it as a scramble, or add some corn tortillas for some makeshift breakfast tacos — either way, it's a spicy and scrumptious alternative to the classic eggy (and flour-y) breakfast burrito.

Sure, you've heard of traditional scrambled eggs and their soy counterpart tofu scramble — but why not go Mediterranean with one of the most popular legumes, the chickpea. This dense and protein-packed chickpea scramble will have you wanting it for lunch and dinner too!
