Chickpea Cutlets with Mushroom Gravy
Somehow, during the recipe testing for Veganomicon, we failed to make the Chickpea Cutlets. Now that everyone is sick talking about how they great they are, we finally decided to make them... ;)
They were awesome (of course -- it's an Isa and Terry recipe), and more importantly, the kids also loved them. What finally forced our hand was a large chickpea windfall, which after soaking took on epic proportions -- chickpea cutlets to the rescue!
The chickpeas were shaped into medallions using a ring mold, than pan-fried in a cast-iron pan. They were kept in a low oven while we made the gravy (roux, veg stock, tamari, mushrooms, nooch, pepper) in the same pan.
