Okay, I’ve really done it this time! I know there are vegan variations on chicken wings and I’ve tried them all. But this. This is different.
What I did:
I took Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s tried and true recipe for chickpea cutlets and formed them into tenders and served them with homemade buffalo and ranch sauces.
Here’s what I like best about this version. The texture. These tenders have a real “chew” without being dry along with an excellent flavor that actually tastes kind of like its traditional counterpart.
Oh, and did I mention they are so, so easy to prepare? Thank you once again, oh mighty Isa!!
Oh, and in case you don’t have recipes for buffalo and ranch sauces, she’s got that covered, too. These are recipes in my regular rotation:
Isa’s Buffalo and Ranch Sauce Recipes
These sound amazing! 🙂 I think even the carnivores my family would love them.
Yes, I believe most wouldn’t be able to tell the difference from traditional tenders! Except these actually taste really good!
Thanks! So yummy and really good cut up on a salad too 🙂
Was that from one of her books? I’d love to give it a try, it looks great!
Yeah, pretty sure it’s in Isa Does It, but it’s also available online with the link in my post 🙂
There it is!… Thanks. I looked for a link earlier, but I missed it 🙂
thank you Melanie, the chickpea is very versatile in the last couple of weeks I have been seeing more and more recipes, I did not know you could make tofu from them.
Yes, and now we know we can make whipped cream and meringue out of the chickpea cooking liquid!! (Aquafaba). I haven’t tried it yet, but I understand it’s groundbreaking!
It is a great dish that use the chickpeas to create the ‘chicken’ like cutlets. Let me try it when I get the wheat gluten first. Thanks 🙂
This is a great recipe: you can chang up the herbs and flavorings, so you never get bored. The texture is so perfect!
Wonderful tasty creations, dear Melanie! xxx
Thank you for this idea! I have a couple of favorites from Isa’s books too. Looks wonderful!
She is just the best! I trust her recipes to always be tasty and turn out well 🙂
These looks wonderful! I have a few favorite dishes from Isa too. Thank you for your recipe!
My pleasure! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
How about two-ingredient buffalo sauce? Valentina hot sauce plus either Earth Balance or Miyoko’s VeganButter heated in a small pot.
Perfect!! I do that, too 🙂
Oh what a lovely recipe! I am all for anything with buffalo sauce on it 🙂
Me too! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
