This Chickpea, Tomato, and Veggie Skillet is a Plant-Based Whole30 breakfast dish that balances smoky flavors from the fire-roasted tomatoes and Ras El Hanout spice with tangy plant-based “sour cream” and delicately sweet sweet potatoes. It’s complex, interesting, and delicious, and tastes especially good the next day, so plan for leftovers.
