Chickpea Cutlets

I made the Chickpea Cutlets from Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero's Veganomicon last night. I was pretty pleased with myself, because 95% of the time, the first time I try out a new recipe, it usually ends in disaster (such as the tamales I made Sunday night from the same cookbook). However, the cutlets turned out pretty swell. I guess the best comparison I can make would be to say they tasted a lot like veggie chicken nuggets. Only better. I served them up with some mashed potatoes made with Earth Balance and light soy milk. I think next time I might try sauteeing some onions and throwing them on top.

I have some pictures, but have yet to upload them, so shall do so soon.

And for anyone who is Vegan or Vegan-ish and hasn't heard of Moskowitz and Romero, because they have clearly been living under a rock, check out The Post Punk Kitchen ASAP! I'm pretty much obsessed with the website and have collected all the cookbooks that these ladies have written. OMG!


  1. Chickpea Cutlets are such a great standby... and still my favorite use of wheat gluten!

  2. I make those cutlets all the time. There so easy and delicious.

  3. Yeah, LOVE those cutlets! Try them with the mustard sauce in Veganomicon... absolutely fantastic!

  4. These are great piccata style too: lemon, capers, white wine, and shallots.
