Hello there! For this video I challenged myself to come up with 4 delicious vegan meals, only using the things I already had at home. The result was these super tasty chickpea breakfast tacos, a cozy and quick miso noodle soup, crispy shredded pancakes (my attempt at Kaiserschmarrn lol) and a super easy to make crunchy tofu & peanut rice bowl.
What’s a meal you cooked for yourself recently – only using leftovers and/or pantry ingredients?

#1 Chickpea Breakfast Tacos

½ can rinsed and drained chickpeas (120g = 4.23oz)
1 onion
olive oil for the pan
a dash of cumin
a dash of paprika
¼ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp chili powder
(or add any spices however much you wish)
1 ½ tbsp tomato purée
⅓ cup passata (80ml)
⅓ cup vegetable broth (80ml), more if needed
salt to taste

1 tbsp vegan butter
1 ½ tbsp tapioca starch*
⅓ cup + 1 tbsp soy cream** (90ml)
¼ tsp garlic powder
2 tsp white wine vinegar
generous pinch of salt or to taste
optional: pinch of black salt/kala namak for egg flavour
optional: handful of vegan cheese for cheese flavour

1-2 tortillas
other add-ins: spring onion, spinach, parsley, sautéed mushrooms, pickled cabbage …

*can be subbed with cornstarch – the result will be a bit less “fluffy” and more like melted cheese
** soy cream will give you that bright white color and a richer flavour, but can be subbed with oat or soy milk – then the result will be a bit more brown in color and a little more thin, but still tasty (more like cheese sauce)

→ serves 1

#2 Quick Miso Noodle Soup

1 clove garlic, finely minced
olive or veg oil for the pot

1 spring onion, chopped
1-2 tsp miso paste
1 ½ cups vegetable broth (375ml)
1 handful frozen peas
