Chickpea Patties

29 May

A few years back on the Yeah that Vegan Shit blog, I saw a recipe for chickpea cutlets. I tried them and both my husband and I went crazy for them. I pretty much made them all the time for a long time until we got so sick of them that we couldn’t even look at chickpeas anymore. And eventually we forgot all about the tasty chickpea cutlets.

Then a few months ago, the lovely Miss Deva over at Sabjimata posted a recipe for chickpea sliders. (Both recipes are from the Veganomicon – which I got for Mother’s Day, lucky me!) Anyway, I remembered while reading her post how much I loved the chickpea cutlets and thought about making them, but in typical fashion I forgot all about it.

Finally, this week I made the chickpea cutlets. So good! I didn’t use all the recommended spices – I only used black pepper, dill, and a tiny bit of garlic. I also added a tablespoon or two of prepared mustard and some nutritional yeast. And instead of bread crumbs, I used chickpea flour instead.

I can’t express how much J, the babies and I loved these. I made it twice this week. I’d probably have made it a third time but we ran out of canned chickpeas.

I served it with cheezy vegetables and the babies gobble it up. Cheezy veggies is basically mushy veggies – I used broccoli, cauliflower and carrot. I add soy sauce, black pepper, a bit of garlic, some nutritional yeast and a handful of fake cheeze (usually diaya or teese). Mix it up and watch my kids go crazy. Sometimes instead of fake cheeze, I’ll mix in a coconut curry sauce or make a peanut sauce and they still go nuts for it – even picky Beatrice.

I’m sure you can guess what we’ll be having at least once this week for dinner.

      I’d invite you over, because I’m probably making some tonight. In case you couldn’t tell, Jer and I get stuck on certain foods. I suppose chickpea cutlets are better than other things we could get stuck on.
