Vegan Mofo Day 15: Chickpea & Broccoli Tofu Curry Scramble

Day 15. Halfway there!
It's a cool Sunday.
Not too hot or cold. A sign that autumn is on the way.
Starting week 4 of school and homework has miraculously piled up. Art criticism theory reading, paper writing, and painting galore. All those fun things. I only had a little time to relax in the kitchen and glance at the chickpeas next to the vanilla almond milk. In a rush to do this school duties that should have been yesterday, I could've quickly prepared oatmeal or cereal. (hence the reaching for the milk).
But chickpeas sounded good for breakfast/brunch.
My intuition proved to be beyond right. Not always the case. However, it happened today! (personal high five)
Very irresistibly delicious for chickpea fanatics, this perfect start to a Sunday morning/afternoon is a Middle Eastern meets tofu scramble delight. The warm spices wake up the senses, getting the mind ready for procrastinated homework. I placed this inside of a bowl (seems more comforting to eat out of them). Taste buds enjoy succulent, egg free tofu paired with yummy broccoli and fiber rich chickpeas- a self-satisfactory nom nom nom winner for Vegan Mofo Day 15!

Good morning Chickpea!
