Chickpea Cutlets (uncooked)
13 Chickpea Cutlets to be exact. I don't know what came over me the other day. Reno went for her a.m. nap and I'm sitting around and just decided that I was going to make a boatload of chickpea cutlets. I didn't realize that I would make that many. There's only 2 of us. We shouldn't eat that many. So I decided to cook one up for Reno when she woke from her nap. SHE LOVED THEM!! I was so excited. Not only does she get protein from the chickpeas but she also gets it from the vital wheat gluten. She ate them all week like we did.
No Parmesan Chickpea Cutlets over Pasta w. Red Sauce
Only after I made this did I realize that a nice cheezy substance would have been nice sprinkled on top. I usually fry the cutlets in a little bit of oil but these cutlets were baked in the oven. It's my new favorite way to eat them. They still get they "fried" taste from the oil I lightly spray on them instead of being fried in more oil then I really need to consume.
Rice and Beans w. Chickpea Cutlet and Avocado
We have also recently discovered that Reno loves Rice and Beans. So we are eating that a few times a week again for now. The cutlet paired really well with the whole dish and it was a super satisfying meal for the 3 of us.
