Chickpea Cutlets

I had no sooner posted last night about not really having much desire to cook when I was struck with a need to crack open my Veganomicon and whip up a comfort food meal to end all comfort food meals. The Chickpea Cutlets come together in a flash (we opted to bake them, and they were incredible...you know what that means....they'll be even more sensational when fried! ;) I mashed some yukon potatoes, roasted some brussel sprouts with tons of garlic, and threw together my go-to gravy (flour, nutr. yeast, olive oil, soy milk, tamari, gravy masters, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. amazing every time!), and served it all with a potato roll, 'cause comfort food is only made better when you throw in extra carbs.

oh, if only blogger had smell-o-vision!
Mmmmmmm.... let's hope that between Veganomicon, ED&BV, and the two new cookbooks I currently pre-ordered (Vegan YumYum and Yellow Rose Recipes from Herbivore), I'll be blogging more regularly again in no time!

the White Bean and Leek Cassoulet is already calling my name!

By the way, Happy World Vegan Day!! :0)

Chickpeas! I love them. I'm crazy about them. But i've never met a brussel sprout that I liked. :P

Now I'm even more jealous! Everyone has been raving about these chickpea cutlets. Stupid Amazon Canada doesn't have Veganomicon yet, so I'm trying to be patient, waiting for it to ship.

We made those last night & they are sooo yummy! We used their mustard gravy from the book, and while it was good we felt it was too salty for our tastes - just fyi for anyone who makes it. Might want to taste it before adding all the capers, brine *and* the soy sauce. But the cutlets ... MMMM!

jess (of Get Sconed!) said...

yay! cutlet love. I honestly prefer them texture and taste wise when baked, but let us know how you like frying them!

the pleasantly plump vegan said...
