Chickpea Cutlets

Meaty vegan cutlets made from chickpeas, gluten and spices.



  1. Mash the chickpeas and oil together until no whole chickpeas remain.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and knead for 3 minutes until strings of gluten have formed.
  3. Pre-heat large non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  4. Divide dough into four equal pieces. Flatten each piece and stretch to roughly 4" x 6".
  5. To pan-fry, add a thin layer of olive oil to the pan.
  6. Place cutlets in the pan and cook on each side for 6 to 7 minute They are ready when lightly brown and firm to the touch.

  8. Flip patties and bake another 8 to 10 minutes until firm and golden brown.

I double this recipe and only use1 tbs of oil for the whole thing-- only using 1/4 of what's called for. I also use panko breadcrumbs as they're the only ones I can find that are vegan but they're also lower calorie than regular breadcrumbs. Mine come out to be about 170 calories a piece. These are my favorite veg protein-- so good.
