Taken from Veganomicon by Isa Chandra Moskowiitz and Terry Hope Romero. This recipe is great if you want something "meaty", but don't have the time to make seitan. Serve as a main course or in sandwiches. You will have to add the amount of oil that you use to fry or bake separately into your food log. I usually bake the cutlets in a small amount of oil or oil spray. I have also substituted okara (soybean paste leftover from making soymilk) for the chickpeas with great results.

Recipe Ingredients for Veganomicon Chickpea Cutlets

1 cup cooked chickpeas
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup wheat gluten
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
1/4 cup water, or vegetable broth
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, pressed or microplane grated
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon paprika, (Hungarian or smoked)
1/4 teaspoon dried rubbed sage
1 Oil for panfrying or baking

Recipe Directions for Veganomicon Chickpea Cutlets

  1. In a mixing bowl, mash the chickpeas together with the oil until no whole chickpeas are left. Add the remaining ingredients and knead for about 3 minutes until strings of gluten have formed.

  2. Preheat a large heavy-bottomed nonstick or cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Meanwhile, divide the cutlet dough into four equal pieces. To form the cutlets, knead each piece in your hand for a few moments and then flatten and stretch each one into a roughly 6 x 4-inch rectangular cutlet shape. The easiest way to do this is to first form a rectangular shape in your hands and them place the cutlets on a clean surface to flatten and stretch them.

  3. Add a moderately thin layer of olive oil to the bottom of the pan. Place the cutlets in the pan and cook on each side for 6 to 7 minutes. Add more oil, if needed, when you flip the cutlets. They're ready when lightly browned and firm to the touch.

  4. Just in case you were wondering, you can also bake these too! Baking these patties gives them a toothsome chewy texture and firm bite. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F, lightly oil baking sheet. Brush each side of pattey with olive oil, place on baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Flip patties and bake another 8-10 minutes till firm and golden-brown
