Fashionably Late- Chickpea Cutlets
Yeah, so all of my fellow bloggers have already been there, done that, with this recipe.. so I had to see what all the fuss was about..... finally.
I made the Chickpea Cutlets from Vcon, with saute'd spinach & arugula topped with Vcon Mustard Sauce minus the capers. I didn't have a couple of the spices this recipe called for, but oh well. I'll try to remember to restock my spice rack next grocery outing.
My husband LOVED these. He said it kind of reminded him of Burger King chicken sandwiches. Of course, It's been about 16 or so years since he has anything remotely close to a real chicken sandwich. I did end up making mine into a sandwich, because they just weren't cutting it for me. As a simple sandwich with veganaise, Dijon mustard and some sort of leafy green.. i liked it much, much more.
Anyway, I'm glad I finally tried it out. The recipe looked pretty intimidating, but really was pretty easy. And, because I finally got a fancy new camera, here is my first super-close up photo.....
