I thought now would be a good time to make something out of the cookbook Veganomicon by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero, seeing as Isa invented VeganMoFo. I’ve heard so much about the chickpea cutlets, that had to be without a doubt the very first thing I was going to try.
It’s incredible! I only wish I tried it sooner, I had no idea what I was missing. I feel like I’ve been living under a rock or something.
I baked them up and served them with green beans and garlic bread. They’re unbelievably good and so easy to make. It’s savory and meaty and so much better than any of those frozen veggie patties I’m used to eating.
I’ve made it a couple of times now, once following the recipe and another where I tweaked it a bit. I used tamari instead of soy sauce and it came out darker in color; I also made it flatter and thinner. I liked it both ways.
I see more tweaking in the future, not that the recipe needs it but because it’s so versatile. And I’ll be making a batch for the freezer so I can kiss those store-bought patties good-bye.
